In 2004 I started collaborating with Luca Sigurta' in the highly experimental project Macaya, and with Tommaso Rolando and Marco Ravera - guitarist and doublebass player of the acclaimed jazz/fusion band Calomito - in the impro/jazzy ensemble called Toba. My live sets are focused on the wide range of my vocal techniques: I experiment with my voice sampling it in real time and feeding the result through various effect units. I also use contact microphones, diktaphone, mandolin, keyboard, bass and other minimal electronic devices. I never used a laptop and I don't own a computer at all. I am an indipendent musician and I am trying to earn a living from the music I make, even if it is very hard. I also book shows for myself, sometimes with a little help from my friends, I also organize shows for my musicians friends.
This is very important for me!!! SUPPORT MUSIC DON'T RESTRAIN IT!!! SUPPORTA LA CREATIVITA' NON REPRIMERLA!!! In May 2007 I gave life to a new duo called Camusi along with the great italian drummer and musician Stefano Giust; he also run a label called Setola di Maiale. Our first self-titled album was released in april 2007, it was recorded at "Lab12", my old house/artspace in Italy. Soon will be out split recording with the US band Moondrig from Portland. During Spring 2007, I composed with keyboard and eletronics a soundtrack for the old silent movie "Madame DuBarry", of Ernst Lubitch (1919), it was premiered live last May in Milan, Italy. During summer 2007 a man came to my show and told me about Epirotica music, this very special music comes from Albania, which is the country of my family origin, this man also told me that in my music you can feel very much Epirotica. Epirotica speak about pain and suffering. In September 2007 I recorded a new album, this work is a dedication to LAB 12 (2003-2007) and it's called "Il Colombre", published by Setola di Maiale.
