Many Others is a tag team, founded in 2012 by Francesco Gregoretti and Oliver di Placido in Napoli Italy. It's about auscultation, cannibalism, pickup stringed to the cymbal for primitive processing in real time, intricate sounds, explosive blast beats and complex polyhrythms: drum like guitar/guitar like drum.
"Olivier Di Placido is a french guitarist. During the years he has developed an absolutely unique approach to his instrument, being able to play it like a turntable, a synthesizer or a gamelan orchestra. Interested in discovering all the possibilities of the guitar, including the most hidden ones, Olivier has litterally invented a new and hybrid instrument, with unfixed neck and moving pick-up. He plays all around Europe since more than ten years, collaborating with musicians and improvisers like Mario De Vega, Arnaud Riviere, Tony Buck, Anthea Caddy, Ruben Patino, Basile Ferriot, SEC_, and MANY OTHERS w/Francesco gregoretti... taking part to international festivals and shows."
