An Italian project operating from 1980 to 1990, a leading representative of the ritual ends of industrial music, whose acronymic name stands for FINAL ALTERNATIVE RELATION. Its core line-up consisted of the project’s initiator and leader Mauro GUAZZOTTI (aka MGZ), Germana OLIVA and Grazia STELLA, who were aided by a number of guest musicians, e.g. Roberto COSTANTINO, Iolanda TORELLO and Mauro BIGLIETTO. Quite original, their compositions fused the natural sounds of acoustic instru- ments (guitars, flute, trumpet, etc.) and antimusical textures produced through painstaking tape editing and with the use of noise generators, synthesizers and multi-effect units. They were permeated with the mystical atmosphere of pagan ritual, complemented with dark electronic sequences designed to imitate the soulless murmur of ubiquitous indu- strial machinery. Musically, they referred to PSYCHIC  TV, 23SKIDOO and CURRENT93, while lyrically to Aleister CROWLEY, the occult and tantrism. After the group disbanded, only GUAZZOTTI remained active, as a DJ, film music and multimedia installation producer, with much artistic success. In 2007 he set up an electro-dance project BORD DE L’EAU. In the 1980s he used to run an independent cassette imprint TECHNOLOGICAL FEELING and occasionally appeared under the OPEN GRAVES STYLE moniker.
