Mai Mai Mai (IT)
Since childhood, he followed his parents around Europe and the Near East, ending up in the south of Italy, assimilating the different cultures, atmospheres and sonorities of the places he was involuntarily taken to. Short periods of time which were intense enough to leave indelible traces.
This project is the transposition of those experiences into music and sounds: a mix of drone and ambient, steamy technoid rhythmics, percussions, field recordings and sound-scapes which lead us to ancient and arcane ages, on the border between east and west.
After the debut Theta LP, out on Boring Machines (2013) and mixed by Jamie Stewart (Xiu Xiu), Delta (Yerevan Tapes, 2014) is his second release and second part of his journey across the Mediterranean Sea, through hidden memories, old unconscious and sounds of past experiences, put together and mixed today using tapes, synths and sequencers.
In the meantime, a collaboration with the producer LUNAR LODGE (LL/MMM – 12″ out on Love Blast / Instruments Of Disciplime) makes him exploring more and proper industrial and dark techno sounds: all done with genuine analogue equipement (909, 707, MS20, Opera 6, Pro-One…).
In spring 2015 his version of SETTE NOTE IN NERO (soundtrack from the Lucio Fulci’s Movie) comes out on the 2xLP compilation “Nostra Signora Delle Tenebre” (Backwards Records)
May 2015: PETRA (One Sided LP out on CORPOC) comes out as an appendix to his Trilogy about the Mediterranean.
October 2015: a new track (ἄκουσμα / Akousma) is featured into the 3xLP compilation made for the Liverpool Psych Festival.
