Michel Montecrossa and his band the Chosen Few this year bring to the Spirit of Woodstock Festival in Mirapuri the brand new songs of their 'Future World & Climate Change Concert Tour 2011'.
Michel Montecrossa about his 10 days 'Future World & Climate Change' Concerts at the Spirit of Woodstock Festival 2011 in Mirapuri:
"Future World is the new direction."

Michel Montecrossa, Cyberrocker, Topical-Song Writer and Founder of Mirapuri created more than 2200 songs and 50 symphonic compositions. The extraordinary work of Michel Montecrossa is constantly moving further. Fusion of all song-styles, symphonic music and music movies unite to form his unique Cyber- and Topical-Music.
When Michel Montecrossa is not in the studio working on new productions he is on the road together with his band ‘The Chosen Few’ (Mirakali, Diana Antara, Mirachandra, David Butterfield, Artis Aldschalis) presenting with his live-concerts – forty and more every year – a Cyber-Rock and Topical-Song Vision come true.
Michel Montecrossa and his band are living in Mirapuri-Coiromonte, Italy. Their music is a continually evolving message, a Cyber-Rock and Topical-Song Action dream come true. Every month they perform live at the Music-Hall of the Omnidiet Resort and Business Hotel in Mirapuri as well as at the Michel Montecrossa Rock Vision Diner in Gauting near Munich, Germany.
They lead a life of friendship and experience, artistically expressing the impact of life and future possibilities.
Michel Montecrossa and the Chosen Few continuously create new songs, new lyrics, new styles of performance. Every concert is a new Cyber-Rock and Topical Song Journey. It is fascinating to experience them and get the feeling of Cyber- and Topical-Music which is not isolated in an alien world but part of a consciousness-expanding outlook on things and a practical way of life being more than an alternative to present conformity.
Michel Montecrossa started the Spirit of Woodstock Festival which takes place every year in July / August in Mirapuri-Coiromonte in the North-Italian Mountains together with the Mirapuri Rainbow Gathering and Mirapuri’s one and only original Bavarian Oktoberfest in Italy.
During the Festival Michel Montecrossa and The Chosen Few sing and play along with international guest-bands for a happy and enthusiastic audience.

Mirapuri Cyberrock and Climate Change Songs
Mirakali

So wild, so sweet our music, living for love, for love alone. Music of freedom, life, delight and a wide intensity of a future already here, singing with magic of our Cyberrock Dream. It's music of Mirapuri, of a dream that became reality. Exploding bliss, emerging waves of ardent energy, ever expanding consciousness, fire-rock-smile of life. All songs I sing, I sing for Michel, my love, my best friend and all I love. All our songs are about our life of love and freedom. We are rockin' fighters, we are lovin' rebels of a future of endless bliss.

Music for me is life: it is fire, burnin' strong and hot. The dream that touches deep the heart and the energy, that turns you on and makes you happy and feel good. It's great to play futuristic cyberrock and to dive into atmospheres of romantic trance songs. As a singer I express love and the experience of life. Music is for me the key to new ideas, strong feelings and the push to go higher.

Jaspoia Lee

Acoustic Rock from Germany
Jaspoia Lee

JASPOIA LEE's magnetic melodies and his warm voice melt on the soul like chocolate and will stick in your ears and hearts. Juggling dynamic acoustic guitar-rock and piano-magic, this creative and friendly cosmopolitan has managed to touch the hearts of thousands of people by making them laugh and reminding them of their dreams. His lively and lovely musical fantasies guide us through a wonderful world full of spicy adventure, lots of laughter, and embrace our innermost ever-blissful essence. Equipped with absolute hearing and skills on vocals, piano, guitars, drums, bass and various other instruments, the young multi-talent has vowed to set out into the great wide open and spread his very joyful message about going from outside and “anti” to inside and “pro”.
“It’s a necessary step for an awakened world”, says JASPOIA about his role as a collectively responsible musician. He treats the term self-realization with playful simplicity: “Positive activists drop all rebellion. Just remember that we are universal DNA (= ‘JASPOIA’), unconditional happiness! Enlightenment is just natural. There’s nothing special about it. All that ego-stuff in the collective human mind really is much more creepy!”
After Home (2008), JASPOIA now surprises with his second studio release Life As A Summer. Sounding like a one-man-musical, LAAS is an epic journey through life, from birth to death, and a pathway to inner strength, awareness, self-trust and pure joy of living.

Old Morgen

Rock from Italy
OldMorgen

Viviamo la nostra musica e vogliamo che sia l'ampia espressione di sensazioni, momenti, cose, persone e non pura esecuzione. La composizione dei nostri testi per noi è importante tanto quanto la musica che proponiamo, essi nascono da frasi, aforismi, ispirazioni che ci colgono all'improvviso, o sono il risultato di varie esperienze che hanno segnato il nostro percorso di vita. Secondo la nostra concezione la musica ha molti significati, per noi è sinonimo di arte, mezzo di comunicazione e filosofia di vita che vogliamo infondere nella mente di chi ci vuole ascoltare, spesso attraverso metafore o significati difficili da comprendere a primo impatto e che potrebbero sembrare scontati. Ogni giorno lavoriamo per sperimentare sempre qualcosa di nuovo, poter proporre energia, non soltanto musica, speriamo di riuscire a mescolarla con poesia e interpretazione in stile teatrale, per infondere e far comprendere in maniera più immediata il nostro pensiero, in un mondo come quello di oggi basato molto sul materialismo, sulla superficialità e la lobotomia di massa.

JALES UND KNOPF - Wie sich das gehört
JALES UND KNOPF, nicht bekannt aus Funk und Fernsehen, haben sich nach einer kurzen Karriere als Eierdiebe nun schlussendlich darauf geeinigt, den Leuten ein Lächeln auf die Lippen zu zaubern. Das Medium ist durchdachter Deutschrap aus der sympathischen Nordstadt Hamburg, unterlegt mit kompetenten, elektronifizierten und teils eingespielten Beats - wie sich das gehört.
Der Sound von JALES UND KNOPF zeichnet sich durch eine Mischung aus Hirn, Herz und Kompetenz aus, die Musikgenre-Grenzen zum sogenannten wegfließen bewegt. Liebevolle Arrangements und begabte Instrumentalisten geben dem musikalischen Nährboden den letzten Schliff, der die Basis für das Live-Erlebnis bildet, das JALES UND KNOPF verkörpern.
Seit 2006 sind JALES UND KNOPF auf großer Reise, um dem Publikum auf OpenAirs, Jams und Slams von Nord bis Süd von Ost nach West, von Hamburg nach München von Düsseldorf bis Greifswald, zu zeigen wo der Lachs die Locken hat. Und so wird es auch weiterhin sein.
Jetzt, im Jahre 2011, sind JALES UND KNOPF bewaffnet mit Ihrer neuen EP "Praktisch Gekauft" auf Achse, um den Appetit zu schüren auf das was kommt, wenn es kommt.
Wir sind live, wir sind laut, wir sind Lachs. Wir sind JALES UND KNOPF.

Grunge Rock from Italy
Il Vile

Il Vile è una “Fenice sonora” con ali fiammeggianti intrise di Rock nelle sue più svariate sfumature all’interno della quale le influenze musicali dei diversi componenti si fondono in un sound caratterizzato da viscerali aperture Hard-rock, atmosfere Indie, New Wave, suoni desertici, deflagrazioni Grunge, oscure reminiscenze blues-core e sfumature metal su di un’anima punk. Il risultato è un miscuglio elettrificato per il quale è stato coniato il termine PostAtomicRock.

Undiscovered Soul

Pop-Rock from Switzerland
Undiscovered Soul

Undiscovered Soul do not allow any pigeonholing approach. Soulful, funky, rocking, bluesy, spherical and pop sounds reach each other their hands in their songs. Seven musicians add up to seven tonal clouds of vapor, for all of them write the lyrics and write the songs. And all of them are still narrowly scratching on the sound of the 80s' surface. How good this feels in a world of charts, which is interstratified by ubiquitous computer farts and programmed robot scrap? Not infrequently, one meets Undiscovered Soul somewhere on a street corner or in a train, where they strike up without getting rambunctious, and where they proclaim their message without shouting. Their music is catchy and unintrusively beautiful and a 100% handmade. They work seriously, but not doggedly and tackle their creation with a bold quantum of pleasure.

Band Members: Jay • Michi • Dök • Raly • Rease • Luk • Nikki

Nekrosun

Unlimited Metal from Italy
Nekrosun

Il termine "Unlimited metal" indica per l'appunto la varietà dei generi, fusi in ordine armonico, che possono essere ascoltati in ogni singolo brano senza poterne calssificare in maniera omogenea un termine preciso. Si spazia da sonorità nuove a quelle del passato. Componenti estremamente grezze a quelle più melodice e lente. Dalla lirica al growl. Dall'aggressività alla tecnica curata. Insomma, un'anima profonda ma piena di innumerevoli sfumature nate dalle invenzioni del chitarrista Matteo Venegoni ed elaborate dai gusti musicali doom e classicheggianti di Alberto Bernasconi (cantante lirico diplomato che utilizza growl, scream, voce sporca, graffiati e in continuo aggiornamento), dalle evoluzioni power/heavy di Michele Brusoni (chitarra solista), dalle idee progressive di Andrea Salerno (batteria), dagli accenni trash/death ad incattivire di Luca Bernocchi (basso) e ammorbidite o rese solenni dai suoni di Umberto Desanti (tastiere ed effetti).

Band Members: Bernasconi Alberto (vocals), Matteo Venegoni (guitar), Brusoni Michele (guitar), Bernocchi Luca (bass), Salerno Andrea (drums), Desanti Umberto (keyboards, effects)

Witche's Brew

Grunge Rock from Italy
Witche's Brew

La storia dei Witche’s Brew ha inizio ufficialmente nel 2008 quando Mirko Zonca (pioniere del Grunge Psichedelico con i Nofuzz verso la fine deglia anni ’80) e Mirko Bosco (ex chitarrista della storica Hard Core band Disper-Azione nella metà deglia anni ’80), reduci da svariate collaborazioni e progetti solisti, s’incontrano per dare vita ad un progetto comune.
L’idea è quella di proporre un power trio pesantemente influenzato dal suono anni 70 e in particolare modo da Blue Cheer, Black Sabbath, Bang, Sir Lord Baltimore, Jeronimo, Hard Stuff, Jpt Scare Band in chiave decisamente più robusta ed aggressiva mantenendo comunque la componente vintage dell’impatto.
L’inserimento di Yggy Leonetti, session-man d’impostazione progressive permette alla Band di esporsi in diversi Live e di affrontare in maniera ottimale la registrazione del primo mini Lp effettuata durante un concerto in Austria. L’album, edito dalla Pisana “Costa Ovest Records”, riscuote un discreto interesse grazie anche alla buona distribuzione dall “Andromeda dischi”.
Yggy Leonetti lascia la band nel 2009 sostituito da Jos Sol ci con il quale i Witche’s Brew affronteranno le registrazioni di White Trash Sideshow; il primo lavoro in studio prodotto dalla prestigiosa Black Widow Records (già etichetta dei Pentagram, Death Row, Delirium, Wicked Mind ecc.).
Il disco esce nel maggio 2010 raccogliendo consensi nel settore e dalla critica specializzata anche grazie ad una produzione estrema e controcorrente in termine di suoni. Un disco diretto e feroce dove il trio si trova a fare i conti anche con ritmiche di carattere Motorhed-iano.
Nel Gennaio 2011 Frankie Brando prende il posto di Sol ci riconferendo al suono dei Witche’s Brew quel sound inconfondibile degli esordi, strutturalmente più claustrofobico e a tratti lisergico implementando l’impatto roccioso.
Nel giugno 2011 i Witche’s Brew entrano per la seconda volta in studio. Per questa produzione il trio si avvarrà della preziosa collaborazione di alcuni personaggi storici della scena Rock internazionale quali Joe Hasselvander (batterista dei RAVEN, PENTAGRAM e DEATH ROW ) Steve Sylvester (storico vocalist dei DEATH SS e attuale leader dei SANCTA SANCTORUM) e molti altri... ovviamente, sempre grazie a Black Widow Records.

Band Members: Mirko Zonca (Vocals, Bass), Mirko Bosco (Guitars), Brando (Drums)

MaryHell

Horrorpunk from Italy
MaryHell

Il progetto nasce nell’inverno del 2010 con l’intento di smuovere un po’ la situazione stantia, regolata dalle cover band, nell’area verbanese. Inizialmente il genere proposto era un punk veloce e ignorante che ben presto si articolò trasformandosi in heavy punk dalle tinte sinistre.
Quello che i MaryHell sono stati in grado di proporre nell’attività live fino ad oggi svolta è uno spettacolo da circo degli orrori, mixando sonorità punk e rock ai passi più cupi del metal e gothic mantenendo sempre una massiccia attitudine horror!

Band Members: Dead (vocals, guitar), Sour (vocals), Kay (vocals, guitar), Pabh (bass), Baz (drums)

Blak Vomit

Rock from Italy
BlakVomit

I "Blak Vomit" nascono nel 1989 a Fagnano olona (VA) dall’incontro tra il cantante Jena ed il batterista Tromb. Già dall’anno successivo ha inizio l’attività live della band che li porterà nel 1993 alla registrazione del primo album in studio. Dopo più di 300 concerti e l’uscita di un disco live, nel 1997 il gruppo si scioglie per tornare con una nuova formazione ed un nuovo disco nel 2003. La band sceglie inoltre di autoprodursi e di distribuire i propri dischi solo come omaggio ai propri concerti o gratuitamente sul proprio sito. E’ l’inizio di un nuovo corso che vedrà la realizzazione di ben 6 album.

Band Members: Jena (Vocals), Derrick (Drums), Soflan (Guitar), Sabo (Bass), Bombo (guitar)
