Larva 108


LARVA (Larva 108) is born in 1999 when Guido (also known as 108) began to make some experiments with a PC, an old DOS software called Fasttracker and some other tools, instruments and pedal effects. Strongly influenced during his youth by people like William Burroughs and by movies like Decoder, he finally found a way to express himself with an old computer. The main goal was to produce a sound inspired by nature, a soundtrack for landscapes, moments and for abstract visual productions Read more on Last.fm
LARVA (Larva 108) is born in 1999 when Guido (also known as 108) began to make some experiments with a PC, an old DOS software called Fasttracker and some other tools, instruments and pedal effects. Strongly influenced during his youth by people like William Burroughs and by movies like Decoder, he finally found a way to express himself with an old computer. The main goal was to produce a sound inspired by nature, a soundtrack for landscapes, moments and for abstract visual productions, to make something disturbing or just a way to escape from this world for few moments. LARVA is heavily connected with the 108's visual productions so the project name turned in to LARVA 108.

Since 2002, Guido is also active with the dark ambient/noise band called CORPOPARASSITA and from this moment the sound of LARVA 108 changed a bit becoming more organic and less noisy, with more electronica on it. During these years he released many pieces, always strictly limited to few copies on tapes and CDr, home made most of the times and very hard to find. It is thought the word larva comes from the Latin meaning “mask” or “ghost”. The larva, also called the volto mask, is mainly white, and typically Venetian.

It is worn with a tricorn and cloak. Like the bauta, the shape of the mask allowed the bearer to breathe and drink easily, and so there was no need to take it off, thus preserving anonymity. These masks were made of fine wax cloth and so were much lighter and were not irritating to wear making them ideal for eating, dancing and flirting. Read more on Last.fm.
