NZIRIA works in the self-described genre of “hard neomelodic”, a hybridisation of the Neapoletan neomelodic song and hardcore gabber influences. As a non-binary artist, NZIRIA attempts to bring a different perspective to Neapoletan song by metamorphosing heteronormative and discriminative narratives of neomelodic into new stories of fluid identities, queer love, and hybridisation between northern and southern Italian cultures. For their CTM performance, they will interact in a tableaux vivant of multiple performers, under the direction of visual artist Bianca Peruzzi, who has also prepared a special light environment of lasers, projectors, and haze. Their debut album “XXYBRID” came out this past summer on Gabber Eleganza‘s Never Sleep.
