Nosound was founded in 2002 in Rome. The music of Nosound is a mix of progressive rock and ambient. Some find the style similar to that of the British band no-man. The compositions consist of slowly melting melancholy melodies, often embedded in the sounds of various key instruments.
The first coloured vinyl I bought was in 1994, The Division Bell blue edition. Exactly the same blue I choose for my first solo album limited colour 180g vinyl edition.
It arrived and it looks and sounds fantastic..again @kscopemusic did an amazing job!
I cannot think of a best way to celebrate almost 15 years of professional music career (and many albums!) with my band @nosoundofficial and my other projects.
But most of all I cannot think of a best way to start the even more intense next 15 years!
I look forward to meet you in Netherlands in 10 days with Nosound at @prognosisfestival and then in Rome on 13th of April for my 'De Constructing Files' solo show ...is going to be a quite unique and full of surprises live performance I can promise you that.. @burningshed / #amfmusicpublishing
I am very excited about the first ever live presence for my solo project in an intimate warm-up setting here in Norwich at the great Sir Garnett @thesirgarnet on 25th of February!
It was not easy to find a way to play an album made of electronics, piano, strings and programming on my own and still being able to play parts myself, without being forced into the restrictive structures of backing tracks.
Here's how my setup is going to be: no guitars, no keyboards, no traditional instruments but lots of 'weird' modern instruments and controllers...and from there I'll control as well visuals that are integral of this rather different kind of show.
I never had to work so hard reinventing a new way of playing live as it's radically different than the usual 'rock band'... but I deeply love it as allows me to play and remix and perform my music in a different way every time!
Several aspects of this album, my first solo effort in many years, are very personal to me, and I'm really enjoying being involved more directly, including this first video that I wanted to realise myself.
The concept behind it is 'time'; how it manifests itself in several ways and how strongly our existence is linked to (and ended by) its course. I've been thinking for a while about how to find the right metaphores and the right way of expressing this concept, and I eventually started playing with the flow of time, challenging the viewer with different ways of filming it and twisting it, to show how different things look or mean when flow of time is presented in a different or ambigous way.
All of the places in this film were visited for the writing or recording of this album, so this idea and the shooting lasted several months in different moments, but in a weird way everything ended up naturally linked into a storyline for this album.
