Ottaven is the solo project of Giovanni Donadini, active since 2003, former member of bands as With Love, WW, Lago Morto, Nastro Mortal, and currently active in bands like Primorje and Arbre du Ténéré.

Minimal sounds, poor electronics, spurious rhythms, fragrant loops, field recordings, voices and objects. sounds that go drifting up to get stuck in the interludes of their exhaustion in new landscapes and changes in perspective.

"Sequenze per raffigurazioni mentali" tells of the fascination with the image and music is composed in 6 parts.
And 'search for visible sounds, sounds that try to stimulate a personal vision or a dream. All the material comes from free improvisations recorded in Palermo in two spring sessions of about 10 days (from 20 June to 30 June 2015 and 9 to 19 July 2016). The six shares will be released in various formats."
