Project SKEME is a band born in 1999 from an idea of Simone Falovo and Alex Jorio who wanted to continue playing live Elektradrive songs and at the same time writing music with other musicians. It is a project of unreleased songs in which excellent musicians from the Turin area took part. The final line-up of the album sees Simone Bresciani (keyboards), Lorenzo Prencipe (bass) and Valerio Viotti (vocals), who gave their decisive contribution to the sound imprint, while the lyrics are all by Simone Falovo. The matrix is AOR-style melodic hard rock with bluesy, prog and broad influences such as King's X, Rush, King Crimson and Steve Ray Vaughan. All the original songs were conceived for an album, which would have had the production of the great Ronnie Montrose, but that did not happen, due to budget problems. The singular thing is that this unreleased album was recorded live. However Simone and Alex decided to pull it out of the drawer and release it, also due to many of Elektradrive fans curiosity, and because they were sure about the quality of the songs and live performances. After all, as Enzo Bozzio, a famous musician, said: “Whoever writes and plays, always has the duty to propose and publish their music”. The album “A-LIVE” was developed in postproduction, and comes from some concerts done at the times and recorded with professional audio equipment. Have a good listening and… open your mind!!
