Podcast of my interview on “Snaturarock” on Radio Sherwood

You can listen to my interview (on air last Suday) in "Snaturarock", an amazing broadcast about new Italian music by Francesca Ognibene or air every Sunday at 15 on Radio Sherwood. Interview in Italian…here I speak about Boring Machines, Onga, making drones, Pauline Oliveros and many many times about my hero Roy Montgomery, Will Gresson and the joy of improvising, the multi-talented Alice Cannava´ of Occulto Magazine, the talented Lara Schilling that made the cover of my album, the weird way I´ve met Filipe Dias De, my ethernal gratitude to Diego Ferri and Brian Pyle, and how bad has been my ex-boyfriend when inspires me “Portect me from what I want”, the bliss of having a baritone guitar, and of course, hairdryers. :-)

"Let it be a giant asteroid hitting the earth, the ultimate economical crisis, the third world war, the return of the big reptiles due to the Earth overheating, or a bunch of helicopters dropping napalm accompanied by Wagner’s The Ride of the Valkyries: Apocalypse is indeed not just a specialty number of religious fanatism and more or less articulated esoteric discourse.

Hi there! First of all, many thanks to the people from the Zone for having wonderfully hosted me, Biblo, Saiko and Nanabianca yesterday night! Thanks to Biblo for her amazing set, to Saiko for her dreamy visual work and to Nanabianca for her awesome dj set!

My friend Diego Ferri is recording me (with an incredible patience) and dealing with everything I refuse to deal with, such as, ProTools, impedence, and so on. Joseph Angelo/Luperci promise me he´ll make an artwork for it, and, being what I request, I´m very curious :-). No need to say, the graphic will be cured by my everlasting partner in crime Alice of Occulto Magazine!

The title is “Things will never be the same” and it´s going to come out in the next months from a Berlin-based tape label. Saiko Ryusui will curated the artwork.
