"...these are digital campfire songs." Behind 9
hides the exile italian and now "almost-berliner"
Marco Brosolo. With the nose of Ringo Starr, the hair of Laurie
Anderson, the voice of Vito Corleone and the hands of Aphex
Twin, 9's mastermind enchants with unusual and harmonic songs.
He surprises his audience with an original mix of classic
Beatles-like song-writing and an extraordinarily delicate
electronic programming. The circle that 9 draws within music
opens with an harmonious voice orchestration and closes with
the touching and tickling warm side of synths.
Live 9 performs with a changing ensemble of drums, bass, guitars,
toy-piano, theremin and a variety of other unusual instruments.
Amazing visuals complete the live experience.

PRESS QUOTES & REVIEWS
"Right from the first notes of the opening track 'Delay'
a warm atmosphere in the music pops up and hovers in the room.
(...) A lot of electronics that gives the compositions life,
that makes them hover as fly ash instead of being heavy in
the tradition. (...) A pleasant acquaintance."
- Cd review by Diskant,
Danish music webzine.
is a nice blend of oddball pop and electronics. Some songs
are more traditional instrumental based and others are
more electronic, some are acoustic so it's all over the
shop. I like the fact you don't know what's gonna come
|Norman Records rating: 'Happy'
|"Brosolo sails smooth indie seas where lopsided instrumentation
(like Theremin) is brought in and he nods towards both electro
and hip-hop. Actually it's more the sensibility than the actual
sound that is "indie". It rests on a foundation
of treated vocals and slightly clicking beats which technically
could be called electronica. But sometimes lyrics are spat
out nihilistic-volunerable (...) and you're still out there
where the heart is on the sleeve and it is wrapped in ethereal
sounds and 'big' guitars. (...) Whether you have had enough
of that is a matter of taste, but 9 does it better than most."
