Burp Enterprise and Circolo Aurora are proud to present Capracampa.
Curated by Roberta WJM Andreucci, Capracampa is a weekly open air performance series taking place at Torrino di Piazza Tasso, a wonderful spot in Florence, where the Aurora is located.
Every Wednesday from May 30 through the end of June, Capracampa will be an aural island sonorised by Sistemi Audiofobici Burp dj collective, creatively hosting small format live sets.

While the dj sets will characteristically offer a well syncopated cocktail of punca, colonial, polybeatz, afroamericana, noise, mod classical, r&b, error and r’n’r music, the live sets will be performed by a variety of solo artists or small format groups ranging widely from freely improvised to composed, acousmatic music and songwriting.

Hystorical member of the Burp Enterprise collective, Jimmy Gelli is a sound artist based in Florence.
He plays with cult band Jealousy Party and he’s one of the founder members of the Sistemi Audiofobici Burp.

Jimmy was a visual artist and a prominent bass player in the psychedelic freeform Florence underground rock scene, which obscurely flourished in the ’80’s as a reaction to new wave ‘s frivolity and the natural exhaustion of GDHC instances as a collective. Until the mid ’90’s Jimmy played with a number of bands as Flintstones, Electric Citizens, Popolo del Sole, Box of Surprises, I Piedi, interpretating r&b, heavy psych and avant rock with a characteristic super fuzzed bass sound.

Then Jimmy decided  to quit visuals and progressively stopped playing bass, focusing on electronic music and djing, beeing fascinated by both extreme dance music and early electronica. He was a main figure in the so called Colonial scene, in the late ’90’s and early 2000, when the focus was on the process of finding a common ground between acoustic, electric and electronic instruments, a dialogue between different backgrounds, grammars and techiniques using free improvisation as the main tool.

In the last years aside being involved in many Jealousy Party’s projects, he’s more and more interested in sound art and sound installations, dealing physically and conceptually with Space and Time.

Mat Pogo is an italian vocalist and graphic artist now resident in Berlin. In the 90’s he was one of the founder members of the Burp Enterprise collective and Jealousy Party.
In the years he developed his own language as a singer/voice-artist using his experience as a rock singer, an improviser and radio-artist where music, sounds, anecdotic and narrative elements fuse constantly.
He’s a founder member of Sistemi Audiofobici Burp.

Box of Surprises is a project that started in the early 90’s about selftaught songwriting and spontaneous tunes’ instant arrangement. As an open format ensemble the Box Of Surprises hosted many musicians from the Burp Enterprise collective. His personnel could go from zero players to ten. Expect some surprises.

Have guitars, will travel.
Italy + Ohio = Brooklyn.
Cheap guitars and dirty reverb.
Garage’n’rock’n’country’n’ rockabilly’n’ boots
garage-rock without the garage
rock’n’roll, what else?

Brooklyn based Dear Hearts formed in Columbus, Ohio, USA when Miss Lucky Haskins of local r’n’r combo Magic City‘s met Nikt Notoni aka Nicotina (founder member of the Burp Enterprise collective, master of casual guitars and Barnacled and Jealousy Party guitar player).
Their lo fi aesthetics are sustained by subtleties, cross-references and full knowledge of the facts


Since 2002 Sistemi Audiofobici Burp is Burp Enterprise’s main dj collective.
Playing frenzy, confrontational dance sets of polybeatz, error and noise music, they spread colonial, funk and punca music to the audiences and dancehalls through a inextricable web of live and recorded sets, broadcasts, public and private services.
