musical project was born as a personal creation of Massimo Magrini, who is living in Tuscany. Magrini has collaborated for long time with the Computer Art Lab of ISTI in Pisa (one of the institutes by CNR – National Research Institute of Italy) releasing original gesture interfaces to be used in many live performances in Italy, Spain, Greece, Cuba. This big experience together with the experiences done with post-punk bands in the late 80’s brought in 1993 to the birth of the Bad Sector
project, which is a mix of electronic experimentation, usually dark emotions, ambient and industrial. His first CD “Ampos”, released in 1995, was immediately received very well both by critics and audience. In the next years the many different releases gave popularity to the project in the international electronic underground scene. The success of Bad Sector
was built also with the many live performances (among others in Belgium, England, Germany, Czech Republic, Austria, UK, France, Russia, Lithuania, Poland, Australia …), a sort of hyper-DJ set in which Magrini often uses particular self-built gesture “controllers”. This project explores the territories between dark ambient and concrete experimental music using sounds recorded in extreme locations (caves, underwater etc.). After many years M.Magrini still maintains his experimental but surprisingly “pop” guiding lines.
