Vinicio Capossela dedicates his cultured music project to the forms that love could easily embody according to the medieval bestiaries.

“Da Pan, tutto, e demonio, dunque tutto demonio, in opposizione a pan theos, tutto Dio.”
From Pan, all, and demonio, therefore all demons, in opposition to pan theos, all God.

So, a concentrate for all the demons, accompanied by a set of musical instruments which evoke the Pandemonium, giant mythical instrument, such as the fairground organ, entirely build in metal, apparently by the subjects of King Laurin, in the underground kingdom inhabited by people of short stature who are confident with mining. This chthonic origin would give a deep tone to the instrument, keeping the spirit low and donates rhythms and harmonies to an infernal and primitive dimension which can’t rise up to the sky. It seems that it’s sinking into the earth, in range of eternal fire, in a stirring that is work of the memory constantly urged to the white fire.

Pandemonium is also the name of the daily column written by Capossela during the lockdown, a sort of almanac of the day. The author exposed the songs and the stories behind them with the ones of an apparently still topicality, but constantly changing.

Pandemonium is a narrative concert with songs exposed, freely chosen in a repertoire that this year celebrates its 30th anniversary of release of the first album “All’una e trentacinque circa” (1990).
