Improvisation represents the backbone of the music played by Ossatura. The practice of improvising is integrated by discussion, research, and critical analysis, all of which contribute to the elaboration of structures, informations and organizational modes. Thus their music is marked by a sequence of sound blocks and diversified interlocking timbres and shapes, where detailed textural work alternates with rhythmic accelleration and highly dense sound events. Standards instrumental techniques are explored, together with heterodox practices such as manipulation, treatment, electrification and amplification of various objects, assuming noise as a structural element. Their improvisational work develops through electroacoustical elaboration in real time and the use of tapes, which both expand and define the space where sound is manipulated. Ossatura naturally tends towards a combination of non-musical languages through a creative process where music is but one of the components in a complex and extended project.
