POOLcast 056 - Franco Bellavita

For the start into the second half of the year we invited Franco Bellavita to record a POOLcast for you. Franco has dedicated himself to the world of creativity for years and moves between visual and sonorous media.

Looking at Franco's work, be it his early musical works under the moniker Pachyderme on 31337 records or sleep is commercial, or the works he created with his analog camera, you will notice his commitment to pure, free and unbiased art. This is underlined even more by his further career. Ambient, jazz, drone, analog photography and handmade collages speak for his dedication to art, which, when you look at it, raises the question of what came first, the work or the inspiration? Does devotion create art or is devotion a product of art ? This mental dilemma regarding causality is also reflected in Franco's POOLcast. The construct of ambient, drone and jazz creates a musical palindrome, where the listener has to face the question of causality. What is beginning, what is end, what is the notion, what is the work. Everything interlocks organically and meaningfully, so that it seems difficult to determine whether the idea has become a work of art or whether the work creates an idea.
