On 30/11 digital release on Blamerec. of Near Death Esperience Reflections Ep (voice/remastered version)

On November 24th 2014, on my birthday, the first complete effort of Francesco Perissi XO project is added to the trillions of bits of digital ether. The title is “NDE”, an acronym for Near Death Experience: all those experiences of pre-death achieved through psychoactive substances. The album is a hypothetical metaphysical journey throughout the escalation of addictions, starting with  THC molecule [C21H30O2], going through morphine [C21H23NO5], to end realizing that we only try to hide from our worst enemy: ourselves. But if we try to touch our soul, it will tell us that there is no other beautiful and powerful molecule [Xo].
After these 5 years of personal and musical growth, I propose a review of this process to celebrate the anniversary. The voice appears, placed in a reflective dimension, that allows me to consider the past with the maturity of the present: NDE Reflections (2019).

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.
Thanks Fango!

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.

Track list:
“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.

“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!
See you very soon with some news!
Never stop the music

So excited to announce my first gig with XO’s new tracks!

“ROSSANA”

“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.
