Pardonne-moi, Olivier! It' s a plunderphonic parabola of the imaginary world, mystical and ornitological world, of the French composer of the XX century, Olivier Messiaen. A sort of birds' catalogue, as Messiaen tried to do during all his life. As he did in "Opera Riparata-A tribute to Bruno Munari", even in this case Økapi composes a sound-collagism opera from all the works by Messiaen. The performance includes a video-development by the italian video-artist Simone Memè, belonging to the collective More Tv*V* [deadalive].

Økapi is Filippo Paolini, an Italian turntablist and sample cut-up artist. Økapi has recorded several solo albums, as well as in the duo Metaxu and with the trio Dogon. He has performed live for national Italian State radio broadcasts (RAI) with renowned avant-turntablist (e.g. Christian Marclay) and still collaborates with numerous international artists such as Mike Cooper, Peter Brotzmann, Mike Patton, Matt Gustafson, Zu, Damo Suzuki, Andy EX, Kawabata Makoto, Metamkine...
