“I wish to get away from the paradigm of music being language-like, the esthetics that believe music (or art in general) is a form of communication. My favourite metaphor for explaining what i’m after is a tree on a meadow; the tree is just standing there, it’s not a message for you, but looking at it, you may think about a lot of things, feel a lot of things… so in way, I’m trying to do music that exists like a tree.” [cit. B.Günter]
Air Protection Office is an electronic music project born in Berlin in 2011, from the collaboration between Enrico Bozzato and Mauro Martinuz. A.P.O doesn’t fit into any of the strictly defined music genre, it’s an “open project”.
Enrico Bozzato (Bos), born and raised in North Italy, is the main producer. He is a composer, sound designer, installation artist and audiovisual performer. After attending a technical school (Electronics and Telecommunications) he decided to deepen his interests in Visual arts attending the University of Visual and Preforming Arts in Venice (Italy). There he took part at courses that allowed him to pursue his interests and try new approaches in the sound and visual areas. This mixture of Technical and Artistic education has a considerable prominence on the things he does. He collaborates with Transfert studio (sound studio) and with the visual artist Martin Romeo. Enrico’s main projects are A.P.O, bild and Dört.
Mauro Martinuz (Italy) Co-founder of the project, sound engineer, soundtrack composer for cinema and contemporary theater, owner of the Transfert studio and founder of NEDAC collective. Even if not always present in the composition process, he plays an important role in the project expecially in the post production task.
