The seven tracks that compose Spazio Sacro (“sacred space” in English) are characterized by field recordings taken in places that are related to the idea of “sacred” in different ways. The starting point is a reflection on how human rites define new soundscapes (e.g. processions, architecture of churches and cathedrals or ruins of isolated mountain sanctuaries). The audio material has been manipulated and the music has been written in a constant dialogue with my personal memories, especially those from childhood, when in my area (a small village in Tuscany, Italy) religious rites still marked the pace of the community life throughout the year.

During the period 2006-2011, he has released three albums under the project name Obsil (the word “Obsil” stands for observing silence). His first album, “Tarsia”, was released in August 2012 by the Anglo-Japanese label Nomadic Kids Republic (Home Normal sister label). The Russian label Dronarivm released his next album “Aer” in September 2014.
