Der Bekannte Post-Industrielle Trompeter (DBPIT) is an experimental/industrial music project created by Flavio Rivabella in the year 2000 - trumpet, field recording and electroacoustic are the main tools DBPIT deals with. DBPIT also experiments with images, producing short videoclips and slideshows to accompany his music and has participated in photography exhibitions.
In may 2002 Misty Circles produced the first solo album by DBPIT after which several albums and participations followed.
Apart from his "solo" project, dbpit has collaborated with many important bands: Novy Svet, Spectre, Circus Joy, Macelleria Mobile di Mezzanotte, Lendormin, Kenji Siratori, Kumiko Okamura, CrisX and others. DBPIT has played live in Italy, Britain, France, Germany, Latvia, Japan and China.
Arianna Degni Lombardo a.k.a XxeNa is a professional graphic-designer and art-editor.
She uses painting, video-art and music to express her artistic ego.
In her paintings she depicts monstrous, mechanical fish-shapes which stem from her cyber-punk background; she has made semi-autobiographical short movies somehow connected to her brightly-coloured, highly graphic paintings as well as dark-ambient music tracks, both in solo and participating with other artists. Arianna took part in several art exhibitions and music compilations.
DBPIT and XXENA started their collaboration in 2008, to fuse together their singular peculiarities in order to overcome the limits of their own fields. Together, they have participated in art exhibitions, released several Cds and set up a series of audio-visual live performances based on live video and sound. The performances are generally based on live video manipulation by XxeNa over sounds by DBPIT but each and every one has their own characteristics.
DBPIT & XxeNa have performed in Rome, London, Berlin, Istanbul, Milan, Jesi, Nola, Riga and ...
Noise Cluster is their new project started in 2016
