life has always been touched by music. I began at 3
years old playing with a small toy piano. This lead
me to a professional electric organ at the age of 6
and finally to an upright piano at 10.
Equally, my life has been directed by the love of
competition, beginning at the age of 14 at the
International Music Competition of Stresa with two
1st and one 3th place win in three categories.
Afterward, there was the wonderful opportunity to be
a part of the
Café del Mar's 25th
Anniversary New Artists Competition, and
finally in 2008 in the International "Song
of the Year"
competition, where I won "Song of the Year" in the
same passion has allowed me to study music at the
Conservatory in piano, composition and Flamenco. (My
eternal thanks for Prof. Rafael Hoces Ortega of
the "Center for Flamenco Studies of Granada
University" and for a family friend
M° Aldo Buonocore
(Grand Master and director of RAI-TV orchestra) for
his great moral support.
Although I have always worked in music, teaching in
a small school and as the organist of two parishes,
economically this was not enough, therefore I've
worked for over 14 years as chief engineer in an
electronics and telecommunications laboratory in
Milan that serves many international governmental
organizations (ONU, The Police Dept., Secret Service,
The Army, etc...)
Electronics have been my passion since I was a child
when at 12 years old I built my first HF transceiver
and at 15 my personal computer based on the Z80
processor. Later, I began to program the first
electronic control units of car engines, beginning
with Renault and subsequently with Honda racing cars.
In this way, I have worked for 20 years in
Supertouring racing as both driver and ECU
programmer for several international racing teams,
including the Swiss Mugen-Honda Racing Team and my
own private Racing Team, "SSDC Racing Team".
Finally, for the last few years I have been able to
return to my great passion. I work in my modest Home
Studio where I write and arrange all my songs,
playing all instruments (including drums and
percussions) mixing and producing myself. I also build
some of my own outboard gear, including compressors,
preamps, DAC converters, equalizers, special effects,
consoles and more.
very 1st (bad) recording "Ojo de Vega" was recorded
with only the Korg CR-4 and a few instruments in my
living room at home. Later, I moved to a Linux based
DAW in my attic home studio and finally, in June
2009, I built my new home studio.
this just to create something unique... or perhaps
even stir an emotion...
