‘Proxima b/ Kepler 62f’ is the result of a deep reflection about life in space.The isolation gives the chance to look ourselves inside and, perhaps, see things differently. The resulting introspection makes our experience almost identical to the astronauts’ one. Let’s think about a man who embarked on a journey in a hostile, apparently empty but full of lethal singularities environment. This condition could appear very far from our earthly perception. But the path offers continuous chances of confrontation with that lack of certainties characterizing the man we left out there, in a deep void, running out of oxygen. Music and its energy are the key to face times like these. The release name express something deep and comforting, a hope that rips the void, almost like the discovery of a new exoplanet, after a long and uncertain journey.

Another dilemma about this musicomaniac concerns his sound engineering skills… in 2016 he was seen lurking around Sae Institute in Milan. Considering such a strong tendency, we can assume this is not the only alias he’s been working on during these years. The research still goes on…
