Skärseld och Mjöd – Collaboration in Sweden

“The memories are hideous, and so they remain”

Is one of the wise words written by my good friend Anton Petterson for his black metal project Skärseld och Mjöd. Last week in Sweden we raised up hell for one of the darkest song I’ve been ever involved.

The sound of Nebulas – Fractal Music

Polvere, Idrogeno e Plasma comes from a selection of jam using the Pengrain: granular synthesis in Max/MSP developed in Paris together with Michele Tadini. The result is a mixture of fractal, avant-garde and contemporary music to describe orbits of distant star clusters impossible to reach, but possible to contemplate from very far away.

LOST & FOUND – The eclectic dance of the First Landing

Since I decided to publish everything I have to close a musical chapter and start with another, I get into this piece I wrote as a test for a video game prototype. It tells about 8 people just landed on another strange, unknown planet that have to face suddenly their first struggles. They come on stage in single file and they walk one by one. I just wanted to represent this picture through music, glad if you’ll notice.
