saturday 14 october at 4 pm >> till Sunday 15 october at 4 pm, at Xing / Raum in Bologna,
Roberta Mosca and I will start again with the 2nd appointment of the Musica per un giorno project.
Pretty exited / afraid / moved / buzzed
24 hours non stop of intimate sounds and movements.
The whole process will be on for 24 years.
We can perform Musica per un giorno just once per year.
To narrate something about the project we printed a small zine/diary and
every year we’ll repress it in a small amount of copies adding new thoughts, contents and images.
The zine will keep on developing, becoming stratified.
This year the zine is in edition of 50 copies, 40 pages.
Feel happy and free to pass there-by.
Bring something to cover you, bring silence, maybe a book?, maybe a snack.
Calm mood – it’s not a party – it’s about stretching ourself and the way we feel time.

here we are with 10 new graphics. >>>>>> SHOP <<<<<<<<<

MARSELL – it’s a beautiful shoes and bags brand; i use a lot their products and collaborate with them from more or less 8 years doin all the screenprinted parts; so i’m pretty proud to see this huge library of the amazing work they have done till now.
GABBER ELEGANZA is an hard-core diavolo from Bergamo City.
I printed his inflammable merch that was sold out in so short time. Planning some re-presses soon!.
he’s going to release his first EP on Presto Records. Check his tumblr – full of inputs and stories about the gabba culture.

Almost everyweek there’s a small concert so check the fb page for the updated program.
End of the last summer I did all the forniture for the shop, for me it was a pretty big work. As usual i’m not so good about doing photos of what was done, but i still feel satisfied and happy about. if you’ll be in Milano and you care about vynils a visit down there it’s surely suggested.
For the record store days Marcone asked to Jacopo from Legno and me to design a bootleg tshirt. Jacopo did a Negazione one and i did a Suicide one. Available at the store in edition of 17 each, ok?

A 2 weeks experience around Cairo – Egypt.
I visited Alberto Boccardi and Family. I also played 2 shows – one it was an impro jam at Canale Undici together with the artist and musician Hassan Khan and the other was at Zig Zag, a club close to Tahrir square, as Arbre du Ténéré together with Maurizio Abate.
Egypt was outstanding. Fluid, active, vivid. An immersive dive. Go there if you can, people is warm, food is fresh and wild, buildings are often so elegant. I loved Cairo.
