27 May 20

we are planning to resume the Tour Project around the middle of June..
in this "plan B" I'll bike alone for all the tour.. since my wife is pregnant in the 6 months..
we are setting everything to make it happen.. the trailer for the bike.. the bags, etc.. 
of course we have to be very careful on what we I can carry with me.. the bike can carry not more than 130 kg..  including myself an its own weight..
today I came back to the gym for the first time after a long time, here the pic. 
the gym is great and 24 hours for 7 days a week.. the only weird new rule is that, as now for this virus period,  you can train in the gym.. but you can't take a shower in the gym.. 
ookk.. I'm training on the cyclette for 3 hours in a row.. so you can imagine how I'm at the end.. 


26 May 20

first day of the season.. first day of busking.. back to Travemunde.. 
it takes time to re-start..  very nice vibes around.. 


19 May 20

finally the video of the new song, Something More is ready, check it out, and let me know what you think: https://youtu.be/lpyscEO4YDk
a special thanks to Lorenzo Funaro for the drawing and to Metropolitan Music Studio for the constant support for the mixing and mastering phase. 


5 May 20

basically I spent (or better invested) all april to learn how to use Protools in the post recording actions.. I mean mixing and mastering.. 
Unfortunately I had time and I couldn't do anything else since the pandemic limitations, so I really dived into that program. I discovered many plugins and the use of them.. thanks also to the precious help and support of Martino @ Metropolitan Music Studio in Bologna.
I took back an old habit.. as in the last years of my university I was used to study during the night and goinf to bed at 6 am.. the same in this period I worked on my "sound" until the sun was up.. 
I like working during the night.. it's very quite.. you're relaxed.. no distractions, no phone ringing.. just focused on what I have to do..
The new track, "Something More" is coming up quite good actually.. tomorrow I'll record again my voice and then it will be ready for you..
so, stay cool and we'll be in touch soon..


25 March 20

recording a new song named "Something More"..
written last year and reflecting a thought for a couple like for instance my wife and I..
but also appropriate in a period like this in which we find ourselves at home following the indications of our governments..


20 March 20

a note to our friends., partners and sponsors:
"due to the restrictions on mobility adopted by European countries, we must delay the departure of the tour "Not Only A Currency". As soon as the conditions will allow it, we'll resume the project and carry it out with passion".


13 March 20

This little guitar plectrum, (see the pic here) represents a great hope of positivity and trust for us..
it's our first gadget, just arrived today.

What is "Not Only A Currency" ?
It's a music tour by bicycle. (see the presentation here)

Respecting all the sanitary & health rules that each country has or will put into effect, from April to July, with courage we @hippiehappyholistic & I, will cross with a bicycle & a guitar, 16 countries that use € as currency throughout Europe..
strengthening the European spirit of unity and collaboration, so important in a time like this.


10 March 20

we, my wife and I, are working hard everyday.. and we are creating a great tour.
I have to tell that I'm sad and worried about the epidemic caused by the corona-virus, which is spreading in Europe. We have been working on it for a year.. and we will make it true !
