Audience Award Prix Russolo 2017

Luigi Russolo

this photo was taken on a warm sunny day during the visit of Laveno-Mombello cemetery, where Italian futurist painter and composer Luigi Russolo is buried and where we came to pay tribute to him and to his highly influential “The Art of Noises” manifesto.

My piece Fragile won the International Audience Award Prix Russolo this year.
*special thanks goes to Elisabat Muse for her vocal contribution.

Instinct Primal – IRM

Instinct Primal contributed new track on Wuornos Aileen – Inerzia album.

Bamboo Music

Yesterday I went to Hokokuji Zen temple in Kamakura and did two long field recordings sessions at the Bamboo Garden. Soothing sounds of falling leaves and friction sound of bamboo trees rub against each other in the wind was mindblowing. Here some pictures.preview_IMG_0376-2
