For the past 12 years, Chat Noir has performed original compositions unconfined by any etiquettes of genre. The opening track of their acclaimed first album Adoration appears in the soundtrack of Cristina Comencini’s “La Bestia nel Cuore (Don’t Tell)” nominated for the best foreign language film category at the 78th Academy Awards in 2006. Universal Music released the following three albums: Decoupage (2007), Difficult to See You (2008), featuring Gianluca Petrella on trombone, and Weather Forecasting Stone (2011). Elec3cities was released by RareNoise Records in 2014. From its origins as an acoustic jazz quartett, Chat Noir has progressively broadened its vocabulary with the inclusion of electronic textures and sounds. Throughout the evolution of its style, the band has at its core remained devoted to a true collective mindset rather than any leader/sideman structure. In 2015 the electronic/ambient music composer and producer Jan Peter Schwalm (Brian Eno, Eivind Aarset), and the guitarist Daniel Calvi (Pony Asteroid) joined the two founding members Michele Cavallari and Luca Fogagnolo. In its new lineup Chat Noir recorded their latest release“Nine Thoughts for One Word” (RareNoise Records, 2016).
