How do you describe your music?
My music is a perfect match between my instinct and my knowledge. I describe my music as metaphysics. There are a lot of images related to visual art and cinema, archive samples and original vocals. A collage of dreams and colors.
How does it feel to release your first album?
Variations is my first full-length album. I wrote the album in a year, between my studio in Milan, Sicily and a beautiful lost place in the Langhe called Lunetta, (the studio of my executive producer Francesco Pistoi). This place is surrounded by nature, there are a lot of foxes and fawns. Nature is one of the things I love most, caring for my mind and spirit. Writing my music immersed in this atypical dimension was electrifying and absolutely inspiring.
Since when do you play music?
I started to play music when I was 18, and I’ve never stopped.
Do you play an instrument?
I play every instrument, but very very bad shah ! I am a sound painter, rather than a musician.
How do you get inspiration for a song?
People inspire me. My feelings inspire me. The air I breathe inspires me. But above all, places inspire me. Not just places I visit, but also those I dream of.
Who inspires you in music?
Moby, The Knife… a lot of artists. I listened like 12 hours of music in the past 10 years. Impossible remind all the music I fall in love.
What are your inspirations in fashion?
David Bowie, sure! But also Grace Jones, Tilda Swinton, Elton John.
What's coming next?
I am working on my second album, my second son. I’ve just have 4 songs so far and it will be a very different work from Variations. My second son. My second video, Alpha, is also coming out soon.
