With new EP, Club Atletico, as well as single from Petrolio, The Fountain caught up with the artist about his plans for 2021. The artist already has a number of high-profile collaborations under his belt with the likes of Jochen Arbeit (Einstürzende Neubauten), Aidan Baker (Nadja), as well as many well-known artists from the Italian noise/industrial/experimental scene such as Fabrizio Modonese Palumbo (Almagest!, Blind Cave Salamander, Coypu, Larsen, XXL), Sigillum S and Mai Mai Mai.
TF: You have a new EP out, what has the reception been like to Club Atletico?
At the moment Depths Records have released the single El Silencio, which is the second track from Club Atletico. We’re very happy about the reception it has received so far by the audience as well as magazines and radio shows. We hope the the EP will get same attention when it’s out on March 5th.
TF: How would you sum up the record in one sentence?
It’s a speleological descent into an empty and cold space with a feeble light at the end.
TF: What is your plan for the remainder of the year, after this release?
I think all depends on governments decisions – Petrolio is, above all, a live project so I’ld like to support my new release with a lot of gigs.
With my label Depths we’re working on further releases. One of this is a new version of Club Atletico, which will also include lyrics and which will be officially announced soon.
In February I’ve also started a theatre project with a Spanish performer as a sound designer. We have a few shows currently planned in Italy – let’s see if Covid lets me reach people with my music 🙂
TF: Where is your favourite venue for playing live, where is the next place you look most forward to gigging?
I love playing in small clubs as well as at festivals. I definitely had great and beautiful feelings when playing ElektroAnschlag in Altenburg in front of a lot of people – high volumes and deep basses, a really nice experience.
I missed UK in my past tour, so I hope I will be able to play there soon, particularly at InFest, an electronic festival focussed on industrial, EBM, power noise and all those kind of sounds which are close to the music I make.
