“Out of service”, installazione multimediale di Økapi (Prod. Kappabit)

"Out of service" is a multimedia installation conceived and created by Økapi (aka Filippo E. Paolini) and produced by Kappabit. It works by deconstructing sounds and images from the most disparate sources and reassembling them into a new universe, disorienting the viewer and destabilizing the balance of what he sees and hears. Sounds in space and fractured images merge, thus redefining the perceived reality as a function of a non-linear synaesthetic montage.

Økapi (aka Filippo E. Paolini)

Økapi is Filippo Paolini, an Italian turntablist and sample cutup artist. Filippo has recorded several solo albums, as well as recording in the duo Metaxu and with the trio Dogon. He has performed live for national Italian State radio broadcasts (RAI) with renowned avant-turntablist, Christian Marclay and collaborates with numerous international artists such as Mike Cooper, Peter Brotzmann, Mike Patton, Matt Gustafson, Zu, Damo Suzuki, Andy EX, Kawabata Makoto, Metamkine.
Økapi's album releases illustrate his unique and edgy use of turntables and computer beyond the hip-hop school of chopped up music, creating music that veers from orchestral to lounge with quirky experimental electronics that maintain a delicate and spacious sound throughout.

His amazing skills at sample mixing are simply outstanding and during Okapi live sets he mixes: techno/broken beat/electro-/8-bit with melodies from Klezmer, polka, children's music, idiot pop and Hawaiian classics to name but a few.
