Othon & Tomasini
Othon & Tomasini is a duo consisting of Greek-born pianist Othon Mataragas and Italian-born singer Ernesto Tomasini. The elements – Othon’s virtuoso piano playing and original, genre-defying compositions and Tomasini’s spectacular voice, which has been called a “Banshee falsetto” by the English newspaper The Independent, and has a stunning range of 4 octaves combines to create a unique and idiosyncratic musical experience: An experimental and innovative blend, which breaks down every conceivable boundary between classical music, opera, theatre, cabaret, musical hall and pop music, the likes of which the world has never seen before. Haunting music, deranged performance and heightened theatricality are Othon & Tomasini’s trademarks.
Othon has released one extravagant album, Digital Angel, where Tomasini sang most of the songs. Guest Appearances includes David Tibet (Current 93) and Marc Almond (Soft Cell). Together, Othon & Tomasini are working on a new album called Impermanence. Among other projects, they have participated on the soundtrack of Bruce LaBruce’s movie Otto; or, Up with Dead People (2008) and, together with Peter “Sleazy” Christopherson (Coil, Throbbing Gristle, Psychic TV, SoiSong), a live performance of the soundtrack to Derek Jarman’s movie The Angelic Conversation. Other collaborations include a broad range of artists like Lee Adams, Black Sun Productions, Current 93, Fabrizio Modonese Palumbo (Larsen) among others. Other references include Klaus Nomi, Marc Almond, Baby Dee and Antony & the Johnsons.
