Emilio Larocca Conte, aka Slow Wave Sleep, is an Italian musician, composer and producer. Before starting his solo career in 2015, he 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 guitarist. In addition, he has worked as production assistant for the composers Jacopo Baboni-Schilingi, Michele Tadini, Marco Biscarini, Antonio Rimedio, Daniele Furlati, and he works also as soundtrack composer for movies, short films and videogames.
The debut album L’Ultimo Uomo published by Cockroach International Production, incorporates the experimental style of the previous demos into an eclectic and surreal songwriting with lyrics in Italian that can be defined as liquid pop. His music is played live as electronic sets, concerts with supporting band and acoustic duo. The entire production is focused on Réfles, a fictional character, and the bizarre narration of his life through dreams.
