  • What On Earth Was That

For mixed media.

A playlist of four miniatures. Each miniature is an experiment that connects footage of b/w movies that I loved with newly composed or improvised music.

Published throughout 2021.


A style exercises without any clear style or any clear form. Not exactly a video clip, not exactly sound design, not a soundtrack. A monstrosity, as the original movies. Extremely expressive and yet very questionable.

The Playlist



  • Light Blue

Conceived during 2019; performed since then. A cycle of five spiritual compositions to be performed in sacred places, such as churches.

Live Recording in Bergamo Alta; 25th October 2020.
