1631 Recordings is a Swedish label founded in 2015 by musician and composer David Wenngren aka Library Tapes. The focus of the label is on contemporary classical and electronic music and they released album from artists as Danny Mulhern, Hoshiko Yamane, Itoko Toma, Sophie Hutchings and Dmitry Evgrafov.
In a couple of months, the label will celebrate its 5th Birthday. We are glad to host four live home sessions which will involve four italian, 1631 Recordings signee artists: Manuel Zito, Olivia Belli, Mattia Vlad Morleo and Marco Caricola.
David Wenngren explains: “1631 Recordings are celebrating 5 years as a label this year and I had plans of organizing a few label events through out the year in different countries. Marco Caricola and I had talked about doing something down in Marco’s old hometown Bari this summer and we were going to invite other Italian artists on the label like Mattia Vlad Morleo and Olivia Belli.
Since this event is highly unlikely to happen this year I’m very happy that we can do these ”live from home sessions” instead and I’m very grateful that we can have them premiered at Sonofmarketing as they have been so supportive of 1631 over these 5 years.”
Watch the third live session with Bari-based composer and musician Olivia Belli. We introduced with the album River Path which was released in Februrary via 1631 Recordings. Recently she release a new album titled Mater which is out via Memory Recordings. It was recorded and mastered with her husband Enrico Belli in their studio the Italian region Marche.
It is based on themes taken from the Stabat Mater of Giovanni Battista Pergolesi, who was native to their same region. It is also a tribute to the 50° Anniversary of the Earth Day (April 22nd, 2020). Find her on Facebook and check her music via Bandcamp.
