ENT is the combined effort of Emanuele Bortoluzzi and Michele Scariot. Their music is a journey through different sounds and ways of composition. ENT tries to hybridize musical forms that include everything from electronica, avant rock, turntablism/plunderphonic, noise and electroascoustic improvisation, with a main interest in live performance.

The italian duo was formed at the end of 2000, when Bortoluzzi and Scariot met each other at a hardcore concert in a pub. Both coming from the local rock scene found an interest in the discovery of electronic instruments like synths, samplers and drum-machines.

Bortoluzzi and Scariot immediately started to play togheter, and after some months "karl", the first track from their first demo (s/t, 2001), was chosen by Fat-Cat records for their web-site. Then they started some collaborations with several net-labels (Tu M'p3, Homemade AvantGarde, Spectrum). After the second demo (Cohai, 2002), they performed at some national and international electronic festivals (Paris @ Batofar cherche l'Italie, Pescara @ PEAM2003, Padova @ Computer Art Festival, Bologna @ Unidentified Festival). Since 2003 they have released some tracks for different label compilations: Saag Record (Japan), Giardini Sonori (Italy), Grain of Sound/Baskaru (Portugal/France).

ENT's first full-length album, "Fuck Work", comes after a long period of composition. The songs were made at home, then deconstructed through the live-set improvisations and reconstructed again at home during the recording sessions. The main idea was to find the essence of each track by removing all the superfluous things... It was a really "FUCKing WORK".
