Soundtracks album out in December! 10/10
It's done! The end of a long process of choosing, adapting, mixing and, thanks to engineer Andrea De Bernardi, mastering.
The album containing the main soundtracks I composed over the last 3 years will be released on December the 5th!
I'm really happy about this job, which was so different from ALLUVISION and from what I'm usually doing onstage with my band.
I had the pleasure to compose music for a lot of beautiful works, like the TV series SottoSopra, airing on the Swiss channel RSI, as well as for the documentaries The Silk Snow: Afghan Winter and The Silk Snow: To The Origins Of Skiing by Fulvio Mariani and Mario Casella, and SOS Bavaria by Andrea Gobetti.
The release show will take place in Lugano on Tuesday December the 5th: excerpts from the documentaries will be screened in sync with the band's performance.
For this purpose, I decided not to book any more shows until that date, so that we can rehearse these pieces of music, as they were not meant to be played live with the band at first.
More info about the release and pre-order (available on CD, as digital download and in streaming) will follow in the next weeks!

Tour goes on and reaches Italy 05/16
On Thursday 18 the band will be again in Lausanne for the first live show all together. We'll be playing at Zélig, near the UNIL university (Métro stop: M1 Mouline) with the local band Red Eyed Cheetah
Next week we're back in Ticino for a special appearance at Living Room, Lugano, with our friends Kolumbia.
And here come the news!
On June 9 we'll be playing for the first time in Italy: the concert will take place at Circolo Svolta (Milan), where we'll be sharing the stage with Volemia, a young band from Castiglione Olona (Varese). These guys are very nice and so furious (musically speaking), and their debut album "EH?" was just released.
We first met each other at La Sauna, where we both recorded our debut albums with departed Andrea Cajelli; so this is definitely the perfect occasion to thank him once again by making a lot of noise with our souls converted into sounds.
See you somewhere between these nice places <3

Goodbye Cajo 01/26
We all have been very sad to hear that our beloved Andrea Cajelli, the genius sound engineer from La Sauna recording studio, who recorded my debut album Alluvision, as well as some of the most beautiful music from northern Italy and Ticino, has untimely died 2 days ago. We are speechless.
Goodbye Cajo, we will miss you so much!
