Non Molleremo Mai / We Will Never Give Up

A 89 years old woman sings along with the musical motif of a well know football stadium chant. Her fragile voice clashes with the physicality of the music. Here’s the fight between life and death.

Rehearsal for the Demo

Rehersal For the Demo consists of five audio recordings of the chant rehearsal held in preparation for the demonstration at the Rackowiecka prison in Warsaw on the 2nd July 2016. The demonstration was organized in solidarity with the three Warsaw anarchists arrested on the night of May 23rd on charges of an alleged arson attempt of a police vehicle.

Ultras Mashup

Download the BOOKLET that comes together with the audio work.

Ultras Mashup consists of a series of audio tracks in which football chants are mixed together with the “original” music they are based on.

The work reflects on the creative aspects of football culture and the reappropriation of pop(ular) music.

The work includes “repurposed” versions of Giuseppe Verdi’s opera theme Aida, Walt Disney’s Robin Hood, Jewish traditional song Gam Gam, Marcella Bella’s classic Montagne Verdi and northern italian song La Mula de Parensio.

The chants come from recordings that I did with the ultras group Brescia 1911.

Besides existing as fixed format, the work is also presented as a live performance where I sing along with the tracks and invite the audience to join the singing.

My Loss Will Be Your Gain

The material for the piece comes from a tape cassette that I found in a derelict empty house. The material consists of a series of recording-tests performed by the woman who used to live in the house. The title of the piece – your loss will be my gain – refers to the accidental discovery of the tape after years of abandonment and neglect.

Forget The Theater – Go To The Stadium

The work reflects on the participatory dimension of football culture and makes a parallel with the shared feelings of identification, involvement and complicity that characterized the origins of western theater.

The piece groups together all the times the Italian word “dai” (in english “c’mon”) was used by the leaders of the supporters’ group BRESCIA 1911 during the matches Brescia vs. Cittadella and Brescia vs. Catania, 2015. The word “dai” is used to motivate the members of the group to participate in the chanting and, as a consequence, to be part of the match.

Up In The Valley

The audio work presents some of the traditional oral chants that I recorded in Presegno (ValSabbia, Brescia, Italy) during the night of San Lorenzo (aka “the night of the shooting stars”), 10 august 2013.

What emerges from the recordings is the vital energy of the voices that take part in the singing. The voices communicate a strong feeling of togetherness and collective excitement. Singing is an expression of joy that enhances social cohesion and contributes to the formation of a certain atmosphere of shared enthusiasm and self empowerment. 

In order to make the chants accessible to a larger audience, I’ve decided to translate them from local dialect to english. The chants cover essential themes such as love, pain, death, desire, and hunger. All primary feelings that are fundamental to every human being.

The Sound of White Noise

The Sound of White Noise is an audio piece consisting of a series of listening instructions that are broadcasted on the radio and performed by the radio listeners at home. The instructions are about specific body positions and movements that the listeners have to perform in relation to the sound system they are using and the space where they are. A recorded voice gives the instructions and guides the listeners through the entire duration of the piece. Each instruction invites the listeners to interact with the white noise that is diffused through the radio. The movements and gestures that the listeners perform modify the stream of white noise that is diffused in the room and the way it is perceived.

The piece has been broadcasted on the 29th of April 2015 on Deutschland Radio Kultur.

Mike The Drums

What happens when we stop thinking that the primary function of a microphone is to capture sound and translate air pressure into electronic signal? What happens when we violate the basic rules and principles of audio engineering and recording technology?

Mike the Drums is a series of audio recordings where, rather than a pair of drumsticks, I play drums with a pair of microphones. The project explores the physical properties and affordances of the microphone and presents a more intuitive and analog way to approach audio technology. By giving a body to the microphone, the project reflects on the physical affection and corporal aspect of material culture and how this sensual attraction subverts the conventional modes of consuming technology.

Mike the Drums is part of a series of works that investigates the practical materiality of audio technology. My interest is to go beyond technology’s vocational functions and set a new kind of relation with it. Here are the links to the other works: Leicester, Beyond the Yellow Line, Wind Sign, Marebello Beach, How Far Can I Get, Slingshot.

Back to Back With Paolo

The audio work documents the encounter between me and Paolo, two amateur singers that accidentally meet on the street at night time. After a short introduction, the encounter turns into a back to back chanting battle. The street becomes the stage of a spontaneous performance. The chants, a way to discover each other.

Magnifying My Sphere of Power

Magnifying My Sphere of Power is an audio work where I sing and play drums along with a selection of my favourite hard core punk songs.

Based on my personal everyday-life musicking* activities, the project amplifies the power of music as an emotional inciter, an agitator that animates physical energy and self presence.

With this work I want to emphasize the role of the listener as a responsive agent that plays a central role in the musical process, and more generally reflect on what music listening means in terms of reconstruction of meaning (appropriation) and activation of personal agency (participation).


This is me singing along with the music that comes from my neighbour’s flat. Rather than ask them to STOP I preferred to GET ALONG. In this case NEGOTIATING was much more fun than ARGUING!

I Am Here With You

How can you sing together with your best friend if he is far away from you? In the audio work “I Am Here With You”, I sing along with the recorded voice of my friend Peter. So we are now together again.
