Pandemonium was recorded in Italy during IDR's 2019 residence at the Pomigliano Jazz Festival — one of the most prestigious festivals in the South of Italy. IDR invited local stars from Naples and Palermo to collaborate on these sessions, including saxophonist Daniele Sepe, singer Guido Sodo, electronic composer Elio Martusciello, frame drummers Massimo La Guardia and Bruno Spagna, dub master Manfredi Clemente, actor Andrea Renzi, and choir conductor Ciro Visco. Pandemonium is an album that reconnects IDR’s music of immigrant memory with the ritual and folkloric sources so crucial to their music; reconnecting and rebuilding on those memories, infusing ancient trance-inducing ritual cults with improvisational genius, creating a space where Albert Ayler meets the Sybil of Cumae.


IDR (Italian Doc Remix) was founded by Italian-born guitarist and composer Marco Cappelli and American-born percussionist Jim Pugliese. The group made its debut at NYC’s Issue Project Room back in 2004. After connecting with the finest of New York’s Downtown Improvisers, Marco Cappelli organized an all-star ensemble to produce the group’s critically-acclaimed 2008 debut, which featured Marc Ribot and DJ Logic.

IDR is vocalistFrancesco Pellegrino, guitarist composer Marco Cappelli, bassist and clarinetist Doug Wieselman, trombonist Roberto Schiano, contrabassist Ken Filiano, and drummer Jim Pugliese.

IDR’s music reflects the process of the immigrants' memory’s distortion from the second generation on, say Cappelli and Pugliese. “This is what happens by living in the New York cultural melting pot with a strong traditional background; IDR’s music is at the same time far from the original source – for geographic, chronological and cultural reasons – and full of tradition’s elements. IDR’s music is impossible to fit in any conventional standard.”…This music is about connection: the connection to one’s culture as well as the merging of styles of different cultures and centuries…There is alchemy here, a magical blend that emerges… - Suzanne Fiol (Issue Project Room founder, NYC)
