Opilec (1917) is a story by Josef Capek, a writer and cubist painter, brother of Karel Capek, the man who is supposed to invent the term “robot” that originally meant “servant”. From this important etymology, that truly inspired all Isaac Asimov literature, comes Opilec Music by Gianluca Pandullo’s fervent mind.
Opilec Music is a label project deeply built on all Asimov way of thinking about how technology is not an enemy of human genre but a help and a real and useful extension of our mind. The robot is our friend and the music too. Opilec Music feels contaminated by old school Chicago House & Detroit Techno and early 80′s Italo Electro Cosmic Disco, musical genres that differentely as strongly have conditioned the history and world dance conception.
