The show

A brief stage check, line and sound check.

All the score I did for Zerovskij Live show are finished. I’ve arranged, scored, co-written the songs that the actors will sing in the show, plus one quite entertaining song for Zerovskij. It’s about time to rehearse.

By the way, if you work for a Zerovskij show, you should expect “your name to change too” … ⬇︎

A very nice surprise this time of the year. My friend and producer Claudio Guidetti, well known as a writer and producer for Eros Ramazzotti, asked me to play and score some orchestral stuff for Sergio Dalma, a very famous Spanish singer. It’s the second time in the last two years that we collaborate: Tony Hadley on 2016 and now Sergio Dalma.

It has been a pleasure to score and play for these two famous singers, and a nice way - after all these years - to share some time chatting and working with Claudio, even if we were located in two separate studios at the same time.

A new Renato Zero project is coming up and while I’m not musically involved as usual, this time I’ve co-written one song and I’ve supervised the orchestral mixing process of the whole 2CD Zerovskij project.

Another 14 shows in January, with very special guests as Eros Ramazzotti, Daniele Bersani, Elio & le Storie Tese and Franco Battiato. It has been a great pleasure and an honour to be an important part of ALT-in-Tour 2016, and hopefully we’ll encounter everybody again as soon as possible.
