Davide Del Col started his solo adventure as Ornament in 1999, with the venomous tape "Strychninlovenectar", which consisted of four structured death-industrial tracks.

His second work entitled "Adorers", inspired by the great plague, was released shortly after on Oktagön Records as a limited edition CD-R. At this point in time the industrial elements of his debut were already fading away.

In 2000 Davide self-released in a few copies "Unicorn Lullaby", his most oniric and beautiful album where he embraced deep Dark-Ambient territories always keeping Ornament's most distinctive features: the cyclic reiteration of the main sequences and his visionary attitude.

The abysmal "Yzaniaveis" was released in 2002 by Blade Records in one of its own best tradition special packages.

Nowadays Ornament is a frozen project and its latest release entiled "Effortless" was made available in mp3 format by the author in late 2003 on his own web pages. This work represented a return to the project's harsh roots.

Davide Del Col is now involved in a new electro-experimental project called Echran along with Fabio Volpi (a member of the Otolab collective). They have just finished to record their first album and often make live appearances. He is also taking care of his cosmic-influenced electronic solo project called O Diabo De Vila Velha.

A completely remastered and repackaged version of "Unicorn Lullaby" was released by Afe in April 2005.
