300 DEMO

Youth culture and music production in Bergamo from the nineties to today

8,00

Catalogue of the exhibition of the same name, it collects three hundred demos or self-production by single artists and music bands from Bergamo, published from 1990 to 2011. The demo represents an extraordinary and immediate means of presentation: the most widespread “business card” that has accompanied all basic musical production for several decades.

A visual journey through five thematic sections presents the formal, technological, and graphic evolutions that the demo has undergone over time, passing through epochal moments in youth subcultures.

The book also recounts the intense intergenerational confrontation where sounds and media become the exact representation of symbolic models, lifestyles and behavioural patterns adopted over time by young people and others.
It tells of a city and a provincial territory that are alive and evolving, where over the last twenty years numerous and varied realities have grown, whose desire to do, produce and express themselves has been met with a widespread presence of rehearsal rooms, recording studios and spaces in which young musicians can nurture their artistic ambitions.
