biography

pl-logo300Prototype Lab finds its stable components in 2010.
Different musicians with their own experiences come from former bands, all in activity since over a decade in proximity of the city of Rome.
The band is formed by Stuart Franzoni (drums) and Andrea Fenili (lead vocals and guitar), with the help of Dario Tomasino (bass), Fabrizio Andreani (Guitar) and many friends on Keyboards & piano.
Their different experiences flow into prototypeLAB and its original production, influenced by pop/prog music, great rock classics plus the eletronic infusions originated from the “Gaetano” ‘ expander.
Rythm is pounding strong and harsh.
Results are never predictable even if the sound is rough is extremely complex.
Franzoni’s leader and composer of most of the songs; eating a gricia and drinking a good glass of wine, the four musicians practice, discuss and compose in Franzoni’s barn on the edge of the Natural Rserve of Maccarese, near Rome.

In 2015 Prototype Lab’s first album, “Mea Culpa”.

mea-culpa

      prototypeLAB - Mea culpa - prototypeLAB

Got the sun and the light, able to scan day and light
alternation to grow up nourish the corn,
today he has a nasty gift planet which yesterday
gave us fruits now is angry with humanity,
just able to waste this priceless gift

Water drop, source of life
and of wealth in her shapes,
what is more plain and pure, all over in the world

Water is the eternal motion
that never should test and yet,
tomorrow we’ll struggle to gain one single drop.

Load of venom a dark river flows under the sand it will flood us
Load of venom a dark river flows under the sand we will flood us
Load of venom a dark river flows under the sand it will flood us

These are the ancient myths, almost forgotten
Mother earth is punishing us (mea culpa)
Mortifies mother shivering the earth by furious winds
storm of fire, upon the heads, we can’t find a way out

Load of venom a dark river flows under the sand it will flood us
Load of venom a dark river flows under the sand we will flood us
Load of venom a dark river flows under the sand it will flood us

metta-sutta-two

      prototypeLAB - Metta Sutta - prototypeLAB

This is what should be done By One who skilled in goodness,
And who knows the path of peace
Let them be able and upright, contented, humble and easily satisfied
Unburdened with duties and frugal in their ways,
Peaceful and calm, and wise and skillful,
Let them not do the slightest thing, that the wise would later reprove.
Let them be able and upright, contented, humble and easily satisfied
Let none deceive another, any man in any State,
Let none through anger, wish harm on the men,
as a mother protect with her life, her child, her only child
as a mother protect with her life, her child, her only child
Let them be able and upright, contented, humble and easily satisfied

porcelain-sky

      prototypeLAB - Porcelain sky - prototypeLAB

Today is a porcelain sky
I found some ash in my pocket
and I don’t know why
Today I’m down on my knees
I know I’d never be another person
I know I’ll never forget
Could you forgive me?
Today I’m down at your knees
Why do you steel want to wait for me
Amber and the dust in my right shoulders

Some white lines in my forehead
Today is a porcelain sky… why do you wait for me

There is something in the air
Did you notice the wind
It whispers between the leaves
and I’m a tree
I know I’d never be another person
I know I’ll never forgive
Could you forget me?
Today I’m down at your knees

syrian-night-turkish-bath-two
      prototypeLAB - Syrian night - prototypeLAB

I was staring at the horizon Cold quiet autumn night
dirty skin and nails fingers and his presence in my bed
while i’m thinking i’d like to be…everywhere but not here
fresh clean linen And the open window
i’m staring at the skyline i’m not there anymore
thinking of friend of mine..and her future how’ bout mine?
and in the hot syrian night
where three muslims offered us cigarettes i met you
fake wedding for protection i’ll be truly yours, truly yours
and when the elevator stopped
i touched you and it kept stopping
i would it couldn’t stop anymore
not in my bed this night, why not?
there was a turkish bath in city centre
and your perfumed skin covered all mine
there was your new haircut
shaving bathing watching thinking of friend
of mine, and my future. how about ours?
no more my bed, no more just my bed
now i’m staring again at the horizon, love is a bush
i will protect you from sea salted wind and violence
and pushing refreshing embrace you and your scarf
and in the hot syrian night
where three muslims offered us cigarettes i met you
fake wedding for protection i thought i’ll be yours, truly yours

the-pebble-in-the-far-marsh-two
      prototypeLAB - The Pebble in far marsh - prototypeLAB

The big pebble in the far marsh
the stagnating dark water
..suddenly troubled in concentric waves
spread in all directions corroding the core of my pain
and the marsh grows again in a new pain
and the crying  fills banks up
the only fixed point the epicenter
the only certitude the only way out
the epicenter the waves
sick and corrupted fondle tears through the narrow path
and the marsh grows again in a new pain
and the crying  fills banks up
the sick waves violently meet..
irregular moves how unfixed are
the eyes path now deep and so burning
now disclosing the hidden secret of love to me
and the marsh grows again in a new pain
and the crying fills banks up

seagulls-are-flying-two
      prototypeLAB - Seagulls are flying - prototypeLAB

Oh seagulls are flying and you can see
at the end of the day
all seams so high and doesn’t seem to lay.
I am underneath the water river
choosing stones between the light
that falls like dust in sunset and I can see late at night
choosing stones between the light
choosing stones between the light
that falls like dust in sunset and I can see late at night

stuarts-self-portrait-two
      prototypeLAB - Stuart's selfportrait - prototypeLAB

I give you beauty, bridled with pain
and fatigue, care and meditation
Something powerful, majestic, indescribable
Beautiful, clearly magnificent
I Play hide and seek with happiness,
Something powerful, majestic, indescribable
but it is this… just a breath
then it goes back and fro,
comes tickling you, and it’s torturing
it threatens you,
Runs, dances, loses it’s balance
dazzling sparkles
Something powerful, majestic, indescribable
but it is this in few moments,
then it goes back, and comes tickling you
and it’s still torturing….

beautiful-revelation

      prototypeLAB - Beautiful Revelation - prototypeLAB

Life always gives you surprises, great ones.
It uses to walk clumsy and lame
Then it runs fastly under the skin
velocities you can’t figure out
it uses to beat you up and keeps threatening cunningly
Then it runs abruptly
as it has never done
Then it falls scarily leaving
scars you can’t heal anymore
it uses to lighten you up and threats you cunningly
Beautiful Revelations
It stumbles and rises up, rests smiling and realizes
it has been too cold And in those moments it decides to give you warm feelings
Then it embrace you softly
It keeps you between its arms closer to the heart
And gently rocks you
patting your head, patting your head
it uses to beat you up and keeps threatening cunningly
Beautiful Revelations
