Musician and Producer born in Sassuolo in 1976, already frontman in projects like Siegfried and mastermind of Carnera and Divisione Sensucht, he undertakes its solo career in 2015, releasing two albums (The Alchemist Organizer and Monarch)in a few years with the well known underground label Old Europa Café, in addiction to a long series of contributions in many underground compilations.

He’s engaged since 2016 as a musician and producer for the project Senketsu No Nightclub, and has recently interlaced a new collaboration with sound artist Moreno Padoan named MHOLE.

We are facing a long instrumental suite where field recordings and digital equipments deal with each other until they bound together.

The environmental records were taken in 2015 into the Salse di Nirano’s Nature Reserve. The heart of this protected area is characterized by an unusual geological phenomenon called “salse eruttive”, consisting in the ascent of cold clayey mud from the underground together with hydrocarbon that builds up volcanic-like cones a few meters high while drying.

The electronic part was recorded live into Leonardi’s studio in December 2018, with a digital drum-sampler and an analogic filter, with a bare work of post-procution and editing.

The conceptual intent is to depict a soundscape that describes the sufference of the Earth under the abuses of humanity like global warming, deforestation and greenhouse gases infesting the atmosphere.
