Self Releases

These were my first fluxes of sounds, my initial reserve of memories and emotions  

Northern Lights  2011

Northern Lights    [04:38]
Hold your breath (in a black hole)    [05:18]

Seeds of light appear at extreme latitudes of the world, among drifting icebergs and blue puffs of the rippled sea, in total darkness; a silent, elusive, subtle halo, hanging in the sky. Intermittent, hovering.  

Fire  29/10/2010

Within    [04:44]
Fire    [04:52]
Blank stares    [04:40]
Gentle as the rain    [04:42]
All around    [08:19]
Silver    [06:21]
Midnight star    [02:56]
No more    [14:05]

In a summer sea-dream haze  24/05/2009

Sleep Paralysis    [02:42]
Love is the key    [03:58]
Moorland    [03:59]
I think about the time    [03:31]
Everything isn't  [03:47] the universe    [04:20]
Feels like I'm breaking up inside    [05:21]
Desire    [03:57]
Astonishment    [04:27]
Slow-wave sleep    [05:49]

When you reach the cliffs enter the sea  September 2007

Where am I ?    [04:03]
100 Years    [05:02]
Cloudburst    [03:11]
Where only seagulls fly    [02:40]
Winter all around    [05:06]
The sun    [04:01]
Frozen with snow    [02:54]
Brighter    [03:09]
Cruel n.2    [04:32]
When you reach the cliffs enter the sea    [04:26]

Anaesthetized emotions
Weakness and strength

Review on Erba della Strega

Dreamtime  2005

Steal my thoughts    [03:56]
A fine day    [03:28]
Moonlight through the rain    [02:31]
Emptying my ruined shell    [04:29]
For ever more    [03:11]
Eyes gazed in marvel (a dream)    [03:31]
Beauty of a woman    [03:06]
Too cold to talk    [06:19]
Mountain lake (2005)    [03:22]
Wall    [03:30]
Summer dreams    [03:16]
                                                      Jazzy rousing mood    [03:30]
                                                      Light    [04:01]
                                                      What I feel is real    [04:00]
                                                      Dreamtime    [04:19]

Dreamtime is a collection of soundtrack-ish songs. Wistful, introspective home-recorded bedroom space rock music

Review on Erba della Strega

Where the light stops  2004

Sweeter songs    [03:03]
Deepest sea    [03:39]
Where the light stops    [03:41]
Watch the stars    [03:35]
The ship song    [03:23]
the 26th    [03:09]
Springtime    [03:14]
Dreams    [04:26]

The exploration of song format continues with 'Where the Light Stops'. Each song is interconnected, collectively crafting a cohesive mood. Similar to 'Inside', both albums delve into personal reflections on my life. Additionally, Stella graciously lent her exquisite voice to a couple of songs. 

Erba della Strega

Inside  2003

Why do you ask?    [02:56]
Start anew    [03:11]
Blush as flames    [03:43]
I miss you    [03:22]
26    [03:24]
Ever since that day    [04:07]
Cuthead    [02:15]
Those days will never end    [03:58]
On the beach...    [05:21]
Why do you ask? (2004)    [03:11]

Compared to my previous works, the music in Inside follows a more traditional 'song format’.   
It was during the production of Inside that I started playing my cherished 'flame' guitar, a beautiful gift I received.   
Fabio contributed his guitar skills on 'On the Beach...' while Max played guitars and bass on 'Why Do You Ask' in 2004.

Snowscape  2000

Few days in Norway    [03:57]
Mountain lake    [03:26]
Sea breeze    [03:47]
Waterfront I    [03:00]
Childhood perfume    [05:50]
Fall alone    [02:07]
Fade away    [04:45]
Snowscape    [03:03]
The passage    [02:38]
Snowfall    [05:12]
Mask    [03:36]
Breath so deep    [04:10]
                                                      Waterfront II    [01:51]
                                                      Drowning in the ocean    [11:20]
                                                      White (outtake)    [04:00]
                                                      Empty (outtake)    [03:28]
                                                      Breath so deep (alt version)    [07:18]

Snowscape depicts a winter landscape, evoking the essence of a distant northern land. During that time, I was captivated by the exploration of deconstructing traditional song formats. I contributed synth, vocals, and various ethnic instruments to the composition. Additionally, Max, a dear friend of mine, joined in by providing bass guitar and additional vocals. 

(In Godhavn I I incorporated sounds sampled from Drowning in the ocean).

Outside  1998

I [12:08]
II [17:18]
III [11:16]

Industrial/Ambient music. In 2004, I added overdubs of guitars and keyboards to the final mixes. 

Listen to it

1989 - 1997

I [3:37]
II [2:41]
III [4:00]
IV [4:12]
V [3:26]
VI [2:49]
VII [15:27]
Circle [2:22]

I performed these songs during my childhood and early adolescence. They are musical pieces that date back to before the birth of the Galati project. The recordings were originally made on tape, which I have since transferred to the computer and cleaned up. In track VII, you'll find guitar overdubs.
