Describe your sound in 3 words
Fierce, concrete, deep
Tell us a few things about your new song “Freewill”. What is the story behind it?
“Freewill” is the first single from “Sensed”, which is a concept album about the evolution of the universe from the point of view of a Being of Light, a story based on ancient Sumerian, Egyptian, Greek, Indian and Japanese scriptures.
The work is of Death/Post Metal mold, with a very important use of harmonic singing, ergo of Mongolian, Indian and Japanese chants; a peculiarity that makes the album also meditative, as well as merely aggressive.
The rhythms derive from and are inspired by the Indian Konnakol, the oldest musical language of man.
“Sensed” is written, performed (vocals and guitars), produced, recorded, programmed (synth, bass and drums) mixed and mastered by Riccardo Moccia, through Altamira Multimedia.
What first got you into music?
I don’t remember exactly. A sensed voice, I guess…
What do you enjoy most? Writing music or performing your music live?
Writing music is a very important part of my life and routine. Performing my music instead is the moment of truth (my truth), where I actually can disappear from this world and get connected with the true essence of my sound: beyond and through my flesh and thoughts.
How Important are political statements by music artists? Can music have an impact on politics?
That depends only by the will of the artist in my opinion. We all do politics by the way, but for doing good things we have to think far beyond our needs and dreams, even beyond the humanity itself.
When not writing music, how do you spend your time?
That’s a weird question… Everyone knows that time doesn’t exist.
What is the most trouble you’ve ever gotten into?
