Some of these included Mick Harris (Harris releasing Eraldo's SIMM debut on his own Possible Recs imprint and working with Black Engine as well as two collaborative albums under their names), Bill Laswell (Somma, Charged, Ashes and numerous others), Nils Petter Molvaer, Harold Budd, Russell Mills[disambiguation needed], Toshinori Kondo (Charged), Raiz, Almamegretta, Lorenzo Esposito Fornasari, Spectre, Sensational, DJ Disk, Professor Shebab, Thomas Fehlmann, Zu (as Black Engine), DJ Olive, Markus Stockhausen, Giovanni Lindo Ferretti (as producer and author), Robin Guthrie, Colin Edwin and Balazs Pandi among many others. In addition to regular work scoring music for adverts and other multimedia projects, Eraldo has composed film music for Academy Award winner Gabriele Salvatores and produced numerous art installations with Petulia Mattioli, as well as other artists including Russell Mills[disambiguation needed] and Harold Budd. Uniquely, Eraldo is also known for being invited to play and organize several special events for H.H. The Dalai Lama in Italy. In 2008, together with music enthusiast Giacomo Bruzzo, Eraldo founded RareNoise Records, a new London based label, which aims to showcase a wide range of cutting edge music. The label has since become an important conduit championing several forward thinking and original artists, as well as releasing a number of Eraldo’s own recordings, including ambient guitar duo Parched (with Davide Tiso from Ephel Duath fame), Somma (with Nils Petter Molvaer, Bill Laswell, Raiz and Lorenzo Esposito Fornasari), Owls (again with Fornasari and Tony Wakeford), [Metallic Taste Of Blood]] (with Colin Edwin from Porcupine Tree, Balazs Pandi and Jamie Saft) and Obake, a doomtronic quartet with Jason Konhen/Bong Ra on bass, Lorenzo Esposito Fornasari and Balazs Pandi. Eraldo has currently completed production work on the second Obake album, as well as a new project with members from the band Morkobot. Among other upcoming collaborations, recording sessions for a second Metallic Taste Of Blood album are scheduled for later in 2013. Read more on Last.fm.
