Listen below and check this awesome list with 5 tracks which have inspired her music.
Barry Truax – Solar Ellipse. Solar Ellipse is a synthesized soundscape by the Canadian computer music composer Barry Truax. I discovered his works during my Conservatory studies. He’s one of my favorite pioneers of electronic music, his musical vision and his approach on researching new compositional forms in the experimentation language still inspires me. We always have something to learn from the past, and the past where we come from is incredible vaste and rich.
Fausto Romitelli- Hellucination 1, Drowning girl. Hallucination 1, Drowning girl is taken from the 50 minutes of the musical opera “An Index Of Metals” by Fausto Romitelli. It’s for sure one of the most interesting work I’ve ever heard in my entire life and It completely opened my mind (and my ears) when I listened to it for the very first time. It electroshocked me literally. If you are an electronic musician you must know Fausto Romitelli.
Bjork – New World. I remember clearly the Sundays morning when I was a child and my mother often put the record Selmasong on, by Bjork, written for the Lars Von Trier film “Dancer in the dark”. I don’t know how this thing impacted on me, but I perfectly remember a sense of piece and freedom when I listened to it. Bjork is still a boss in doing what she does.
Franco Battiato – Le Sacre Sinfonie del tempo. What I like the most about Franco Battiato It is his total disinterest in sticking to paradigms and dogmas that are part of our modern society. His music went beyond convention, beyond rules, it was the pure language of a human being. I strongly believe this has allowed him to be appreciated by a very wide audience, from the extreme experimentation to the pop music one. He was genuine. I do not perceive limits in his writing, starting from the beginning of his career till the end. What I perceive from his music is the “non-temporality”. His music has no age, it is eternal.
Brian Eno – An Ending. He’s one of my favorite electronic composer as well as being the master of ambient music. In its delicacy and purity of sound, An Ending, taking from “Apollo: Atmospheres and Soundtrack” album, still dives me into new worlds and soundscapes every time I listen to it. Eno is definitely one the my biggest source of inspiration when I write music for films.
