Which kind of music are you playing?,
which type of record have you done?.....
These are the most difficult questions I ever received and I have to
say I have never found an answer.
How can you explain the music you play when you spent all your life
trying to ignore the fences splitting music into many different
How is it possible to explain the music you play, when your research
brings to consider musical events as unique, besides their belonging to
genres or styles?
In these years of research I have always followed a personal path in
which I could show my musical form, going through unconventional (or at
least un-defined) environments, avoiding the academy you can find
inside styles and avoiding the consolatory recognition coming from a
certain part of the audience.
Creating a project like this also means to break a listening habit, to
destroy a code linked to auto-identification into a genre or a style,
in order to give space to the music setting the sonorous and conceptual
result of the work at the center.
I also had the intention to react to a kind of “tiredness”
which is easily found in radical improvisation, expressed by repetitive
sounds and defined formulas.
All of this required a lot of courage and exposed me in front of
certain risks; above all, it taught me that avoiding the seductive
expressions of “commercial” music – easily identified
by the listener – is a fundamental element to make choices
towards new musical lands.
I believe that “Better alone…” is not only a concert
but also the expression of a literary and conceptual form,
understandable listening the work from start to end and, above all, I
think it belongs to that category of works to discover – not only
“Better alone…” is not coming from conceitedness
but, on the contrary, from the full understanding of the fact that
breaking certain languages interplay and dialogue between the musicians
This difficult communication becomes even more difficult when, like in
this project, different worlds merge together their sounds (the sound
of the acoustic instruments and the infinite universe of electronics),
trying to create a unique magma flowing into a really personal approach
to improvisation materials.
I am always convinced the hummings living in our brain are only our
own, beautifully unique and can be transmitted through the emotions and
can only be perceived with a huge “availability”.
Therefore, to solve this deep difficulty I told myself:
I wish you a pleasant listening.
