The PaNoPTiCoN formula is an open invitation to whom desires to dive into the most beautiful musical experience, inspired by the great names of early seventies electric jazz masters (think about the first Weather Report, Herbie Hancock's Crossings, or Miles Davis's Bitches Brew).
Domenico Solazzo's PaNoPTiCoN is a sonic laboratory that takes life on stage and on stage only, where no one knows what to expect, musicians included. No rehearsals are planned. Never.
It's improvisation at its very best, centered on three major points : atmosphere, groove and melody.
Each musicians involved in the project are also intensively touring with their own bands. Therefore the line up is subject to change from one performance to another while still keeping a solid basis where each instrument is represented. That's part of deal but that's also what makes PaNoPTiCoN so intersting and fresh, each shows bringing new perspectives.
PaNoPTiCoN's first performances took place in april 2007. Since then, they made about twenty shows, playing in a great number of venues during various special occasions (la Nuit Blanche, Brussels Jazz Marathon).
Last but not least, PaNoPTiCoN has made available all their performances on their official blog where you can listen to them all in full and freely : http://enterpanopticon.blogspot.com
