NEW SINGLE feat. LEE RANALDO (Sonic Youth)

“Last Letter to Jayne“ by me and Lee Ranaldo is out today exclusively on Alessandro Bandcamp store.
It’s the first single taken from the album “Sintesi”.
Alessandro and Lee have been talking about this collaboration for a while and it eventually happened, exchanging ideas over distance from New York City to Bologna.
The initial text for Last Letter to Jayne was written in the early dark days of the pandemic, when it seemed the world was closing in. I had recently parted ways with someone who I’d been close to. The poem came as a sort of memorial to a relationship with a fixed ending. Later Alessandro approached me about working together on a collaborative song. When I heard the sombre, majestic music, I thought that I could adapt the poem to fit, and also challenge myself to be experimental with my vocals in a way that was quite new for me – using overlapping voices and phrases to create an instability between the foreground and the background, a ‘three- dimensional’ evocation of an emotional state.
Lee Ranaldo – New York City, November 2020
“It’s a haunting, ethereal song fueled by minimal electronics, gorgeous background harmonies, and Lee’s spoken word”
Brooklyn Vegan
“It is sparse and minimalist; it is a symphony of sorrow in a starkly beautiful way.”

I’m really looking forward to perform the solo live premiere of my soundtrack rendition for “La Jetée” by Chris Marker, a short film constructed almost entirely from still photos, which i consider unique and very inspiring.  

I’ve been working on it over the last three months and finally is going to happen on October 2nd at Soundscreen Film Festival. Here’s a trailer for you to have a glimpse, hope it touches your heart and pleases your ears.

collaboration with Lee Ranaldo

I’m very excited to announce the collaboration for my solo record with one of my musical heroes, Lee Ranaldo from legendary band Sonic Youth.
Lee is not just a member of SY but also an awesome vocalist, songwriter, sound maker and guitarist – his works have been an important part of my lifetime soundtrack, so guess how i’m touched and honored by his love and dedication for the tune we made together.
This was the missing piece for the final master of the record, i can’t wait to share it with you, hopefully soon.
Thank you everybody for your support!
Stay tuned.
