"I don’t like to think using patterns or categories so I direct my search along a liny shadow line trying to overpass the musical walls and putting together different sound universes, enlarging the landscape spared to the listener. My works are trying to make nexus among the sounds of tagged dark-ambient with sounds of so-called industrial. Two different sound landscapes to which coincides two universes, two dimensions very far among them that I try to do complements.As beside to dark and iron sonorities, representatives the factory and smithy, there are warm notes coming from cello and viola hold by sound carpets. Distorted voices appears sometimes like a most evident signal of the human misery. Several times the pulse coming out from a drum machine or from a rhythmic noise gives an obsessive heartbeat to the piece. Every sound is the materialization of a specific condition, always balanced from social and inside-private dimension. Themes of pieces and their sound development lives not for to respect the style of a kind of music that must be transmitted or destroyed. With a lot of effort the works are trying to get ahead of everything in a journey between what is enclosing outside and what lives inside, attaching sounds who can recomposing the unit of the human condition explored crossing always the darkest side of the path."
