Slow Wave Sleep, is an eclectic project founded in 2015 by Emilio Larocca Conte, an Italian musician, composer and producer. After numerous demos and collaborations, the debut album L’Ultimo Uomo is released in January 2018, published by Cockroach International Production, in which each music genre  flowed into a surreal song with Italian lyrics. SWS’s style is called liquid pop because, like water, it adapts to any container offering live experiences also in acoustic, electronic sets, promoting cross-media projects and collaborations of all kinds. The entire production is focused on Réfles, a fictional character, and the bizarre narration of his life through dreams inspired by reality.

Emilio has been a member of RELIC (death metal, ITA), Jureduré (pop/folk, ITA), Spookshow Inc. (industrial rock, LIT), as well as having collaborated with numerous artists as a guitarist. In addition, he was a production assistant for the composers Jacopo Baboni-SchilingiMichele TadiniMarco BiscariniAntonio RimedioDaniele Furlati, and wrote soundtracks for films, short films and videogames as well as ambient music.
