“Revolutions” @ Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ

3-10-2017

I feel that being an artist and more particularly a musician in these days is not an easy task to bare: we spend most of our time secluded in our study rooms, pursuing our stylistic ideal or satisfying our expressive needs. Outside those rooms, the world keeps stumbling upon oppression, war, social problematics… At times I wonder whether it is not more useful to drop the guitar and “do something”, I wonder why we keep shutting ourselves inside bourgeois concerts halls, why the so-called contemporary music scene is each and every day more distant from People.
I don’t care about novelty if that precludes a connection with those who spend their time listening to my music. I don’t care about self-indulging wanking, I just love when music brings us together. Then I feel that after all, in some weird and beautiful way, we musicians are actually “doing something”.
A bunch of brilliant creatives and musicians are going to “do something” on Thursday from 19:15 at Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ, Amsterdam. It will be an evening of awareness and communion, everyone of us will have something to say (or to play) about the world we live in: I will tell you a story of an Italian valley, together with some good friends and the Nieuw Ensemble we will try to make you smell the scent of trees and rocks, to see its sky, dawn and sunset, before some tar-stinking greediness takes it away from us.
I hope to see you there, it will be memorable!

New Syncage video published!

14-5-2017

Hi guys, it’s been rather quiet lately: that was mainly because I was extremely busy with Syncage, my band. Last May 5th we released our first full-length album, Unlike Here and we had a couple of concerts, one in Amsterdam (NL) and the other in Gothenburg (SE). It was amazing! Here’s a videoclip of the first track of the album, SCHOOL! I hope you’ll enjoy it!
If you like it, please consider to buy the album. Thanks!

It’s good to be back writing music after a whole summer dedicated to recording Syncage‘s album: after 2 years I can finally stop worrying about coherence and large projects (for a little while) and dedicate my compositional efforts to experimentation and discovery.
Here’s a track for classical guitar, voice, electronics and missing 16th notes, enjoy!
