I’m overdue for Easter, but… happy Easter everyone!
New update about my new album, which is going pretty good. Aw, first things first.
I do have an official title for the new album, which is BLOODSPORTS. It’s official now! The name “bloodsports” synthesises perfectly themes I talk about and describe on the lyrics, and as you might know I suck at naming songs or records. Once I get a not-suck idea, I might just stick with that.
I also created the artwork but I’m saving it for another day. It’s sooo cool!

I like to talk about what inspire artists. I think that, as an artist, it’s important for me to always be looking around me. What happens in the world, what I can take from the world. It just make what I do more interesting and fun to do. I don’t like to do the same stuff over and over again, neither I see the point of doing everything exactly the same all the time.
When people ask me who or what inspire me, or which bands I take inspiration from, I just have a hard time to answer and usually I answer with “Life!”. That sounds a lot like a bohemienne-style answer or something philosophically hipster, but it’s just the true and I’m not trying to play the complex artist.
I do think that there are people and bands that inspire a musician. I don’t believe it when someone says that they don’t take inspiration from anyone, I don’t see that possible. At the same time I believe that inspiration stops where your mind and your creativity kick in, and that you carry along the inspiration you had when you first started making music.

‘sup, if you’re eager for an update, there you have it!
Last time I told you about a new album on the way, and it’s still in progress. It’s going great, I think I’ve made it at least halfway through in terms of recording. Then I’ll have to mix it, but that should take less time.

Yo everybody, this time around it’s been not very long. So, I’ve learnt a new lesson again and I want to share it here, because aside from being the headquarter of my project for the three or four of you who are actually interested, this place is also a sort of journal of things that I learn and things that happen in my life.
2016 was a rough year for me. Lots of things have changed. Something finished, something started, something drifted away. Questions were asked, answers came – however definitely not all of them. All in all, 2016 was the year when I finally took the contorted and uncomfortable and dangerous path of introspection. Continue reading I Changed My Mind
Howdy, it’s been awhile.
Today I want to share a rare event for MTATT for two reasons. First off, it’s a cover song. I don’t record many cover songs. I think this is my 4th or 5th cover in 7 years.
However, the song is called “Siberia”. It was originally written and recorded in 1984 by the Italian band Diaframma. And, as you can imagine, it’s an Italian song which is the second rare event this song is about. My other Italian song so far is “Remota”, an original one of mine that I first released on my rookie album “Behind The Black Curtain” and then remastered last year on my collection “Stage\One”.
I made a YouTube video for “Siberia”, which you can find below.

Hey now, so the time has finally come.
619 days after my proper latest release (that was “Fallen Down Trees”), now I have a new album. It’s called CALEB’S CURSE and it’s available now for free at my Bandcamp page. Or, if you have no time to lose, simply use the form below here to listen.
I want to talk a little bit about this album, but first things first. Continue reading New Album CALEB’S CURSE is out NOW!
Happy new year everyone! May this be YOUR year.
To kick off 2017, I have a little improvisation for you that I made using Soundtoys 5 Effect Rack + AKAI LPD8. It features a drum loop that eventually becomes… something just a little bit different. Enjoy!
Continue reading Improvisation #1 – Soundtoys 5 Effect Rack + AKAI LPD8
Today I’m here to give you a brand new song. It’s called “Wings” and it’s about the story of Icarus. It’s a sort of prologue to the beginning of My Terminal And The Trip. Back in 2011 I released my rookie album called “Behind The Black Curtain”, and the other title I thought of for the album was “Icarus’ Revenge”. Now Icarus lives in this song. However, there are few references to “The Twelve Tasks of Asterix”.
Anyway, you can listen to the song here

This is a sort of re-post of something that I had in another blog that I’m about to delete. I’m posting it here because I think it’s an interesting story/rant/whatever. The original date is 22nd March 2016, I edited something though. Enjoy!
As I’m writing this, I’m about to mix the first song I’ve ever recorded after a few months. Despite it’s a spontaneous punk-ish experiment, lately I’m working to create “something new”. The reason of the quote-unquote is the will to create something that’s not just another song or album. Continue reading Hobby or Art?? a.k.a. experimenting with Yasunao Tone’s technique
I’ll keep it short today. I made a YouTube tutorial on how/why to record your own samples in your home studios. Here it is:
