Bio


?ALOS
Muse of Chaos (queer-pagan-doom-avant-metal)
Queer because she doesn't admit gender identity
Pagan because she's against all religions
Doom because her music is slow, physical and piercing
Avant because her sound is not current
Metal because it's inside her
?Alos is this and much more: music, performance, dance, political activism, social critic, history, feminism, anarchy.
?Alos is the shape of chaos.

Stefania Pedretti/?Alos (Vigevano, IT 1976)
From 2006 to 2011 lives and works in Berlin, now lives in Ravenna (I)
Activ from 1998, she is a member of OVO and ALLUN.
She has played in more than one thousand concerts and she has released four albums.

?Alos is a musician and an experimental performer, from 2003 she melts these disciplines to create shows/performances in which live music is a basic element.

Her work surpasses the boundary between performing arts, integrating experimental music, performance, improvisation and video art and makes the audience participate actively in the show through the stimulation of the six senses.
The feminine figure is the basis of each performative action and its role both in history and in the contemporary society is critically investigated.
In 2015 and 2016 she collaborated with the director Markus Öhrn in the Azdora project. From 2017 she start to collaborate with Santarcangelo Festival as a music curator.

She has played in the whole of Italy and Europe, in the United States, Canada, Russia, China, Vietnam, Mexico and Israel.
