I’m super happy to share the re-release of “Song from Ruined Days” on Spire Bandcamp.
The present release is a long-drone track mostly based on recordings made in Porto Marghera, a big industrial coastal area on the mainland of Venice, Italy (Winter 2009), now largely on disposal and afflicted by a severe economic and environmental crisis. Part of this work was originally used for a sound work in the “Antares” pavilion of VEGA Park (VEnice GAteway for science and technology) for a photography exhibition as a part of the project “Le nuove vie di Porto Marghera”. Other field recordings were made in Vienna, Austria (December 2009), in an attempt to explore the sacred spaces of the city. ‘Song from ruined days’ is a mix of industrial and liturgical soundscape, a brief journey in the space of a full desolation.
Originally released in 2010, remastered by Miguel Carvalhais in 2022.
Happy to announce a new release for the digital label Superpang.
“Da Rin” is a work based on a selection of field recordings made in the Val Da Rin, a small valley located in the Dolomites in the province of Belluno (in Italy’s Veneto region). It is a side valley, to the right of the Val d’Ansiei, in the municipality of Auronzo di Cadore. Here are the coordinates to reach the site: 46° 32′ 21.4″ N 12° 21′ 42.3″ E.
“Lost & Found” is a deferred improvised ambient music work for acoustic guitar and piano. In April 2020, during the first lockdown, Stefano Guzzetti improvised on the piano while listening in headphones to eight acoustic guitar tracks he received by Enrico Coniglio. Completed with the addition of discrete and never overly distinctive electronic parts, “Lost & Found” is a collection of pieces in which sounds alternate themselves with pauses and silences, enhancing tensions and harmonic consonances. From isolationist melancholy to vibrant joy open to hope.

Some time ago I was invited to contribute to the polish magazine Avant, Volume XI, Issue 3/2020 with an interview on the volume “LISTENING TO THE URBANOCENE. PEOPLE – SOUNDS – CITIES”, among Francisco Lopez, Lisa Gaupp, Luís Cláudio Ribeiro, Martin Butler and many others. Take a tour.
