"Technoir is a band born in 2012 who has the intent to carve out a space in the indefinite black music scene by mixing funk and blues riffs with a powerful soul and classic jazz voice. Everything is revisited and reworked in a contemporary key.
Lit by purple and blue lights, Technoir pervaded the Lilith Festival's audience by closing the Genoese Piazza De Ferrari in an intimate and silent sphere, where they let speak only their music.
Technoir are Jennifer "Jennyfire" Villa, singer and jazz student at the “Niccolò Paganini” Music Conservatory, and Alexandros "Alec" Finizio, graduated in electronic music and guitarist of the AUDIOgraffiti band, his alternative rock and electro-funk project.
The two had already presented theirselves under the name Seranidae, a word made of their names letters that recalls the Serranidae fish family, which are cosmopolitan, thermophilic and carnivores.
In a trip that reaches Africa, Greece and Italy, Jennifer and Alec redefined and renamed themselves Technoir, a term that brings the attention to their black sound, which doesn't deny the contribution of electronic music. "
