Andrea Rottin beings to perform as Oswald, a trio, in 2002.

In 2003 he publishes "OSWALD - Last Songs".
Since 2004 he has been recording and performing alone or

collaborating with Paolo Moretti, Giorgio Tempesta

(Princesa), Simone Peraz (Impulse Staat ) and Vittorio

Demarin (Gomma Workshop).
In 2007 Andrea finished "SONGS ABOUT NIGHTMARES", in

cooperation with these artists.


Andrea Rottin, co-founder of the Madcap Collective, leaves

behind the designation Oswald, the name he used in his past

activity as a trio and later as a soloist, and presents his

As if Syd Barrett played the Unplugged in New York with

Nirvana (listen to locked) rarely disconnecting the plug and

pushing on the distortion pedal. But there is more. The

flexibility of Andrea Rottin''s voice allows him to space

between registers and styles, switching from the cobainian

gasp to a falsetto voice or to some grunts and howlings.

These vocal aspects make a sort of different chapter out of

each song.

Andrea Rottin is also accompanied by Madcap Collective

friends, on violins, double basses and synthesizers, and

showing his interest both for songwriting and experimenting,

he used the possibilities given by the recording studio

co-operataing with the musician Simone Peraz and finally

assigning the task of mixing it all to Davide Cristiani at

his Bombanella Studio (Gentle Voices, Sousedovic Pes).

Songs About Nightmares is not obvious and it shines by the

intensity of the writing, though remaining enjoyable. The

album is half an hour long, giving you just enough time for

memorizing some themes and sing them along while listening

to it again.
