Live project by photographer and performer Jacopo Benassi and dj producer post punk musician Lady Maru





“Brutal Casual Magazine is the live project of photographer and performer Jacopo Benassi, and dj producer post punk musician Lady Maru: it’s a live set with ebm, industrial, synthpunk and noise influences combined with real time photography, with a camera used as a music instrument. The whole set is caught in real time, with the aim of building up a magazine of slogans , pictures, and sound, through the random self documentation process of the camera. It’s a surrealistic way to claim occult subcultures through various disciplines (sound, photography and body performance). The fanzine will be based on materials taken from various gigs, but also from everyday life experiences: walking down a street, happenings after a gig, or in a kitchen, everywhere. The fanzine will include contributions of friends and artists that are willing to add elements to the “brutal casual” concept, too.
Brutal Casuality is the first work released by this Italian project. The album shows, besides all their influences, the ability of this duo to generate different soundscapes. With this heterogeneity they show that besides possessing a great creative control they also dominate another factor such as unpredictability, the quality of surprising any listener with their different styles.
The album contains 11 tracks, nine are originals and two of them are remixes by Fivequestionmarks and one by Acxx01 & Ybrido. Artcover by Mimusa.”

[IT] Brutal Casual Magazine è il progetto del fotografo e performer  Jacopo Benassi e la dj producer Lady Maru.
È un live set con influenze di ebm, industrial, synthpunk e noise, a cui si aggiunge la  fotografia in presa diretta usata come uno strumento musicale. Tutto il set verrà documentato in tempo reale per creare un magazine fatto di slogan, foto e suono, grazie al lavoro di auto documentazione random della macchina fotografica (e del registratore). E’ un modo surreale di  rendere omaggio alle sottoculture più nascoste  (dal postpunk deviato alle avanguardie “grottesche”) tramite varie discipline (il suono, la fotografia e la performance visiva e dei movimenti). Questo è il primo album in cassetta per la label di culto underground spagnola Industrial Complexx.
