Hox Vox is a solo project by me, Hox (Gianluca Missero), an animator, illustrator and musician born in Venezia (Italy).
In Hox Vox I'm trying to keep a link between music and image.

During first half of 80s I played also in other two bands: bass and keyboards with Marco Bianchi (drummer of Death in Venice) in the avant-wave duo SlideStraviati, and keyboards in new wave Gunshot Nucleus again with Bianchi, Sebastian Russo (singer of Death in Venice) and Alberta Marchiori. From about 1985 I ceased to play - except for a short comin' back in '89 with an 8-bit music experiment - 'til october 2008 when a friend of mine pushed me back to music making.

The approach of my work is RIO/progressive, with an obsession for not-proper use of instruments, song structures and bizarre twists on caribbean, post-rock or gamelan themes.

I started to draw, paint, sculpt clay and make animations since I was a child, first experience was with flipbooks then I tried all kind of techniques: stop motion with cutouts, puppets, objects or clay, cel animation, 3D animation, video authoring with special FX. In first '90s I won some prizes in international contests as Bit.Movie, Pixel Art Expo, Anteprima Cinema.

No worries. But you gotta understand that just because our leaders put on such an "in your face" display of an issue they know is of worldwide concern, does not mean I hold to their tactic. The problem with Democracy is no one understands the embarrasment leaders bring to their people by such arrogant acts.
