SLOW WAVE SLEEP, pseudonym of Emilio Larocca Conte, is an eclectic music project born in 2015. Slow Wave Sleep is also a pirate ship that writes soundtracks to stolen surreal stories plowing the 7 seas. Inspired by Ernst’s paintings, Kafka literature, Richard Wagner’s drama, Buster Keaton’s irony, and visionary musicians like Björk, King Crimson, Gorillaz, Rammstein – which I like so much – has nourished an original style over time which incorporates everything, also producing a short film and a videogame.
The entire production was centered around Rèfles, a fictitious character, and his dreams where memories of the past are merged with recent events and fantasy.
