Loomings is a one of a kind musical universe of mingled voices and percussions, acoustic and electronic sounds. Our songs follow unpredictable paths: sometimes they emerge from complex compositional strategies, sometimes they’re just driven by the desire to walk through harmonies, vocal arabesques, instrumental unisons and phases. We propose a music which belongs to the tradition of experimental pop and rock — artists like the Beatles, Rock In Opposition, Frank Zappa or even Prince — but we don’t want just to step again on their trail: our aim is to venture further along the course shown by these « pioneers ».
Loomings were founded in 2012 by Jacopo Costa, an italian musician living in Strasbourg: he has long coveted the idea of setting up a band to perform his own compositions and found in Strasbourg some versatile partners to bring this project to life. Within Loomings, two classical/traditional trained singers (Maria Denami and Clara Weil) join their forces to the jazzy groove provided by Louis Haessler (bass) and Nils Boyny (Keyboards) and to the percussions and the electronics devices controlled by Enrico Pedicure et Jacopo Costa. The result of this blend, now poetic, now ironic or powerful, invites the most adventurous listeners to discover new musical territories.
