New videos from September concerts
Uploaded the video of my solo @ Auditorium Parco della Musica. It was a pleasure to play in this great frame
in my hometown! Thanks to Giancarlo Schiaffini, Mohessen Kasirossafar, Francesco Paolo Manna and Antonino Anastasia
for playing with me in this concert, and thanks to Matteo Scioli for organising it.
Last but not least, there is an excerpt from the concert with Michael Thieke @ Studio Acht. I love this project, and a big thank you to the people working at Studio Acht: these rare initiatives are the ones that make still possible to present unconvetional music focousing only on aesthetic contents (at least the ones I share)
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.

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.
