September

Looking forward to this coming September! I'll be playing for the first time at Auditorium Parco della Musica, and in some of my favourite experimental music spots like Studio Acht and Sowieso. The month will start with the debut of the more traditional percussion quartet Anahita with Mohssen Kasirossafar, Francesco Paolo Manna, Antonino Anastasia and special guest Giancarlo Schiaffini, then I'll have the chance to catch up with Sabine Vogel with our project Uccello Acquatico, and then a little tour with Michael Thieke that will see us in Zurich, Berlin and Amsterdam.

New project - Thieke/Marino

After 5 intense days of recordings and concerts I'm really happy to work on some new music with Michael Thieke.

Acousmatic for the People ROCKS!

Alessandro Perini and Fabio Monni did a great job at organizing this festival at the Malmö Inter Arts Center. Jacob Riis took care of the concert the day my piece was performed and his care of details -from the assembling of a tight, strong program to the diffusion on the Acousmonium- was nothing but superb.
Thanks guys!
