Black Hole is a cooperative unit which focuses on different languages and expressions. The band freely blends past and present  in a music that is collective and often far from the usual "theme-solos" kind of set up. The four musicians work as a whole, a unit in which every single musician has the possibility to freely express himself. The sound of the quartet is well defined by the warm sound of Daniele Cavallanti's tenor saxophone, the more harsh expressions of Walter Donatiello's and Michelangelo Flammia's electric guitars and bass, and the rich rhythmic textures of Tiziano Tononi's drums. The different pieces of the band's repertoire develop in a constant balance between form and freedom, in which composition and improvisation blend together with unusual fluency.

"Black bundaries, no frontiers, no limits to imagination, the electric saga of where contemporary jazz musicians push themselves, to re-affirm once again their love for freedom." Tiziano Tononi
