Through his almost forty-year career, Hank Roberts has created his own original voice on the cello, embracing abstract improvisation, folk melodies, contemporary music and vigorous rock songs. Born in Indiana in 1954, Roberts made a name for himself in the legendary Downtown scene in the 80’s New York alongside Tim Berne, Marc Ribot, John Zorn and especially Bill Frisell, with whom he has collaborated since 1975.
Pipe Dream is the result of an international collaboration between Hank Roberts and four of the most creative and transversal musicians of the new Italian scene: Pasquale Mirra, Zeno De Rossi, Giorgio Pacorig and Filippo Vignato. Gathered in a singular sounding formation, able to wander between chamber atmospheres, African echoes, new music and American folk-rock, they will make their first record production at the end of their first tour in Italy and Europe in October 2017.
The estate, located in 5 hectares of centuries old parkland in the Collio Goriziano, dates back to 1630. In the 1900s it was Count Sigismondo Douglas Attems Petzenstein in 1963 who perpetrated the ancient lineage of the name by promoting the development of the Consortium Collio, from which he created a DOC of which he remained president until 1999. The total renovation of the property is due to Paolo and Virginia Giasone Attems Petzenstein who since 2004 have been redeveloping the entire estate.
