Bernardo Lanzetti

From Italian born, Bernardo Lanzetti went to school and graduated in Texas as an A.F.S. student. Back in Italy, he formed Acqua Fragile, a rock progressive band and released in 1973 an album by the same name followed by Mass Media Stars in 1974. Bernardo, lead vocal and guitar, was responsible for the English lyrics and for most of the music and arrangements. Critics, at the time, found his vocals reminiscent of Roger Chapman and Peter Gabriel. In '75, Bernardo was called to join P.F.M., to record Chocolate Kings, Jet Lag and to be the band's front man on tours in Japan, U.K., Canada and U.S.A. Lanzetti went solo in '79 and, in the following years, he was in London, at Vangelis studio, to record with British musicians like Clive Bunker(Jethro Tull), John Perry (Caravan), as well as Steve Simpson, Frank Ricotti and lan Carr. After the London years, the Artist started to develop his very personal approach to electronics. Always working around his voice and through his live performing, Bernardo Lanzetti has been testing and developing fine machines like the Fairlight Voice-Tracker (pitch and character-to-midi), ending up to invent a unique device he called Glovox, a glove that placed on his throat, picks up vibrations to be processed as an eclectic mono instrument.
