nocturnal interlude september 23rd

a little bit about it

hello everyone.

my new song is called “nocturnal // interlude” and it’s going to be released officially on september 23rd • which is the autumn equinox day for this year.

i absolutely love autumn in every part of it • colors sounds smells atmosphere • so i’ve decided to released my new song after a long time right in this special day.

this song is a sort of “frankenstein creature” because is a combination of two different songs. the first one is “nocturnal” [which is actually the second part of the song] and it’s a idea that i had some years ago during one sleepless night • and this little melodic idea remained incomplete until a couple of months ago when i wrote “interlude” [the first part of the song]. i was tying to describe the amount of feelings that i actually have when i play my songs in front of a crowd • what “singing my music” really means to me. and this idea founded its way right into “nocturnal” just in a blink of an eye.

so i’ve decided to name this song after the two different ideas.

this song means a lot to me because it comes after a long time [actually almost two years] of reflections about my muscial life and the meaning of my musical project. i’ve also tried to focus much more on the evolution of the sound of my project. i just wanted to find something that sounded stuck somewhere between the modern indie folk of bon iver and the electronic minimalism of chet faker and james blake. i was trying to create a space between the electronic and minimal sound of a beat [kick • snare • hihat] that i could fill with my voice and the mellow sound of my electric guitar [with lots of effects and reverbs and delays] • and with this song i think that i’ve found the right way to go about.

so i’ve worked with the producer of this song simone meneghelli to find this sound and to bring it to life. then i called my favourite sound engineer gabriele pallanca • a couple of musicians and friends of mine like adriano arena and marco ferretti • and finally the mastermind behind all my video and graphic concepts • the lovely matteo armanini.

we passed a few days in my little house lost in the mountains of valle d’aosta and we recorded “nocturnal // interlude” and all the other songs that are part of my new ep. those were days of fun and fatigue • lots of things to record and to try to fix. but we made it in the end and we created a little world made of vocal fx • mellow guitars • powerful bass sounds • and a little bit of “melodic texture”.

this song was mixed by gabriele pallanca in his beautiful studio in genova • genova records.

mastering was a business of gianluca partrito in his g-effect studio in turin and he did a wonderful job.

we recorded a musical video which is going to be released a few days after the song. and so we are.

“nocturnal // interlude” will be out soon and it’s a prelude of my new ep • which is made of five songs and it’s going to be released in october.

so save the date [23rd september] • i hope you enjoy my new song • i can’t wait you to listen to it.

sincerely yours.

nocturnal // intelrude

[interlude]

something’s going on • it’s multiplying

something’s going on • it’s multiplying

i wonder if it’s just the way i’m singing

like i’m standing on a bomb while i’m alone

and anytime • in any place • the way i’m singing

it’s like i’m losing my slumber • the world’s going under

right on your fingertips

and anytime • in any place • the way i’m singing

that’s true • i’m on top of the world on my feet

but i don’t mind

i don’t mind

something’s going on • it’s multiplying

something’s going on • it’s multiplying

and i wonder if it’s just the way i’m singing

everyone gets highs and lows from every note

and anytime • in any place • the way i’m singing

it’s like i’m chasing a ghost • the world’s going to be lost

right on your fingertips

and anytime • in any place • the way i’m singing

that’s true • i’m on top if the world on my feet

but i don’t mind

[nocturnal]

i don’t mind

i dont’ mind • i don’t mind

over my face right now • over my face

it’s over my face right now

and i’ve tried

over my face right now • my face right now

and anytime • in any place • the way i’m singing

it’s like i’m losing my slumber • the world’s going under

right on your fingertips

and anytime • in any place • the way i’m singing

that’s true • i’m on top if the world on my feet

but i don’t mind
