    CD-r – 13 tracks – 48 min.

    Coming from a Hip Hop background, Giacomo Cioni aka 12+ started out both as a beatmaker and a rapper. Armed with his MPC sampler, he progressively went on to explore other genres of music through his practice of the art of sampling.

    “AUTotrophy” is a project born out of his time spent as a regular collaborator behind the scenes of our label, a time during which he had the opportunity of digging deep into our entire catalogue. Meticulously researching, sampling and looping the most unusual sonorities out of our first 14 records, he succeeded in giving those albums a new meaning by setting them in a totally new context. This thorough process resulted in 13 tracks at the crossroads between instrumental hip-hop and groovy experimental electronics, first presented in Berlin during the Aut Fest 2014.
    Giacomo Ciono thereafter further developed his concept and took inspiration in the many forms of the principle of “transformation”, as conceived in different cultural and scientific fields. The album's title as well as each track name are refering to a process of metamorphosis in various disciplines, from science to litterature or cinema.

    WIth "AUTotrophy" the Aut Records connoisseurs will be able to rediscover a good part of our catalogue as they never heard it before, while the novices will find a unique way to get acquainted with us.
