Demetrio Stratos – 70th anniversary

Once upon a time there was an “international popular group” called Area, and there was a man: Demetrio Stratos, lyricist, multi-instrumentalist, music researcher, frontman and singer of this band…

“He studied ethnomusicology, vocal extensions, Asian music chant, compared musicology, the problem of ethnic vocality, psychoanalysis, the relationship between spoken language and the psyche, the limits of the spoken language. He was able to reach 7,000 Hz, and to perform diplophony, triplophony, and also quadrophony. Daniel Charles has described him as the person who decimated monody by the demultiplication of the acoustic spectrum. His vocal abilities were explored and documented.  His study of the voice used as a musical instrument carried him to reach for the limits of human capabilities. The amazing research of Stratos brings many suggestions of unexplored fields of research that are still to be studied.(en.wikipedia).

Demetrio was born in April, 22nd 1945. He died in New York in June, 13th 1979… Today he would have turned seventy years… Happy birthday Demetrio
