On 30/11 digital release on Blamerec. of Near Death Eperience Reflections Ep (voice/remastered version)
On November 24th 2014, on my birthday, the first complete effort of the Francesco Perissi XO project is added to the trillions of bits of digital ether. The title is “NDE”, an acronym for Near Death Experience, or rather all those experiences of pre-death achieved through psychoactive substances. The album is in fact a hypothetical metaphysical journey into the escalation of addictions, starting with the THC molecule [C21H30O2], passing through that of morphine [C21H23NO5], to arrive at realizing that we only try to hide from our most bitter enemy, ourselves, who, if we dare to touch his soul, will tell us that there is no other more beautiful and powerful molecule [Xo].

What do Trevor Wishart and Marilyn Manson have in common? Demetrio Stratos and Holly Herndon?
I will start with “Other Voices” playlist to give my monthly contribution to the legendary @Fango Radio, with program “41bis Radio”, which will not deal with genres or movements but with concepts or themes. A bit like looking for alternative connections, in a moment of chaos and separation, in order not to die for isolation regime.

LISTEN TO “1I0I100.000” ALBUM FOR EXAPHONIC GUITAR
09/18/19 I am officially releasing my first album for #exaphonic #guitar “1I0I100.000” on #soundcloud for the first time. The concept comes from my love for genius italian writer Pirandello and the moment when I took this photo on the ferry to Visby, a Swedish “Caribbean” island. In front of those shows we feel part of everything, infinitely small and infinitely fragmented.
“Ntanglement” – description in music of the physical phenomenon that links particles at incredible distances.
“QuI / Ora” – description in music of the Presence obtained through the breath that transcends time and space.
“1” – description in music of the alchemical processes of transmutation of matter.
7/09/19 I uploaded my performance @Quilombo, Prato on youtube.

“15 minutes” sound/video installation by Francesco Perissi. Premiere Cycle~ 24 feb “Acousmatic Tales vol.2”
“The artist, the predominant figure of” Pop Art “, Andy Warhol, argued that in the future we would have 15 minutes of fame for each one. Like all great geniuses he had a unique point of view and a far-sighted look, which allowed him to imagine what actually happened 50 years later, in fact today, through the use of the web and social media, everyone can become the star of himself and get a decent celebrity, which can last over time or, as Warhol claimed, wear out quickly.
In the “liquid society” in fact the action times managed by the algorithms are very fast and the speed of the contents does not allow assimilation, moving further and further away from the rhythms of human life that is inextricably linked to nature.
The work “15 minutes” tries to reduce to the essential, through the interactive use of sound and projections, an emotional experience that catapults the viewer into a dimension of notoriety, transcended in time and space.
So … how does it feel to be famous? “
Saturday at Cycle something magic happened..
My first gig with Suite Ohm association and new tracks was great!

“Rossana” is the title of the new album coming soon from the project “XO”. The name comes from a beloved missing person that contains a symbolic imagery concerning the emotional sphere of affectivity. This is often marked by the pain of separation and excitement of the encounter, the destructive impulse and the constructive one, by fear and fragility. The description of these processes, takes place through the discovery of the most intimate expressive thing we have: the voice. The album was conceived in 2018 among the icy and solitary winter landscapes of Sweden and written in the scorching and torrid heat of the Italian summer.
XO’s working on news tracks..
