Luca Dipierro

イタリア生まれ、アメリカ在住のアニメーター/イラストレーター、ルカ・ディピエッロ作品。古本の表紙と切り紙細工のマリオネットを1コマづつストップモーションで撮影していくcut-out animation手法を使った彼の作品は“不気味さと可愛さの完璧なバランス”( The Huffington Post紙) “切なくも美しい”(LMagazine誌)等と評されている。

“ルカ・ディピエッロのアニメーションは、驚くほどの純真さとなんとも言いがたい不気味さとの紙一重の境界線上にある。登場する紙や木や布でできたキャラクターたちはギクシャクと踊ったり、演奏したり、妙な動物に出会ったり、様々な感情をも見せる。ディッピエッロのカラフルで奇妙な映像にはシュールなダークネスが潜んでおり、中世の物語にピカソが挿絵を付けた絵本のようだ。” CityArts, Seattle

Freddie Murphy & Chiara Lee

「Father Murphy(マーフィー神父)」名義で2003年から活動を始め、アルバム、EPリリースと共に、儀式的な独特のライブパフォーマンスでツアーを重ね、ヨーロッパの主要フェスティバルに数多く招かれてきた。
昨年秋「RISING. – A Requiem For Father Murphy」をリリース、Father Murphyとしての活動には終止符を打つも、”マーフィー神父”のリアリティーはその死によって確約され、その魂は再生(Rising)する、、、、”
本作「Paper Circus」以外にもディピエッロ監督作品の多数に音源を提供している。彼らの仄暗い異端派中世カソリシズムの香りのする典礼音楽とインダストリアル、ゴス、エレクトロニカの融合した独特の音楽性は「ニューイタリアンオカルトサイケデリア」とも言えよう。
上映会後はそんな彼らによる“Dark & Gothic Italian Folklore”DJセットで幻想的な夜をお過ごしください。

“イタリアのFather Murphyの音楽はモリコーネとゴブリンが混ざった葬いの雰囲気を漂わせる。
かの(ダリオ)アルジェント翁も認めることだろう” – THE WIRE

Luca Dipierro is an animator and illustrator born in Italy and living in the US. His cut-out animations, filmed in stop motion with marionettes made out of paper and old book cloth, have been called “a perfect balance between creepy and charming” (The Huffington Post) and “sad and beautiful” (L Magazine). His work has been shown in theaters, galleries, and film festivals in the USA and Europe, and appears regularly on book and record covers. In 2014,
Dipierro started touring with the show Paper Circus, a screening of his animations with a live soundtrack that he performs together with the band Father Murphy. Dipierro is the author of the art zine Das Ding, published by The Walk; the illustrated novel in cards A Wooden Leg (The Walk, 2014); the collection of short prose Biscotti Neri (Madcap, 2011); and numerous art booklets. He is currently working on his first animated feature, The Cadence.

Father Murphy is the sound of the Catholic sense of Guilt. A downward spiral aiming at the bottom of the hollow, and then digging even deeper.Through the years the band became one of the most peculiar musical entities coming out of Italy, part of that community that Simon Reynolds started to call the new “Italian Occult Psychedelia”.
The duo, well known for their really intense live shows, something in between a ritual and an artistic performance,furiously performed all over Europe, playing all the most important festivals (Le guess who?, Liverpool Psych Fest,Incubate, Supernormal, …), toured North America with the likes of Deerhoof, Dirty Beaches, Iceage and Xiu Xiu and recently joined Jarboe on stage for a tour to promote a collaborative EP.
Their album titled “Rising. A reqiuem for Father Murphy” was announced as their final. It was released in April 2018 by Avant! Records and Ramp Local.

This Italian group are a ‘cult’ band in every sense of the word. – THE QUIETUS

They make music that’s fantastically fucked up… – EXCLAIM!

An outsider’s operatic hellscape that calls to mind the starkest visions of Cormac McCarthy. – THE GUARDIAN

Italian Father Murphy conjure up a funereal atmosphere somewhere between homemade Morricone and toytown

Goblin… That ol’devil Dario would surely approve. – THE WIRE

Impressive but mightmarish, like a beautifully rendered self-portrait splattered with blood and self-loathing. -ROCK'AROLLA

Like punks who secretly learned classical. – SAN FRANCISCO WEEKLY
