Best known as producer and mainman behind Dark Companion Records and the reborn Manticore Records, Max Marchini give birth to his first solo album where he plays all instruments except for two collaborations with avantgarde singer Paola Tafgliaferro and featuring the amazing Pakhawaj indian drum playing of Akhilesh Gundecha on one track. This album ws intended as a present for his friends but eventually Dark Companion insisted to have it available in a stricly limited run for a niche brotherhood of connoisseurs.
This album is quite a a random collection of musical sketches, collected ideas, instruments explorations recorded over a period of more than 10 years, at home late night, and shows Max’s many faces and many influences from classical
to folk, indian music to electronic avantgarde of the old Berlin school... but reinvented in some absolutely peculiar new style.
