What got you into music, and if you had not gotten into music what would you be doing today?

What do you like to do when you're not playing music and how does that influence your creativity?
Free time is dedicate to a lot of passion from doing sport to reading books, videogames and TV series. Too Many to mention. And everything I do and hobby I have, inspires me in some ways.

We are from Torino, an important and big town on the northwest of Italy, not far from France.

I chose the name because I like the contrast between geometry and chaos, order and disorder and because I think there is an order in everything, also when it’s impossible to find it
Tell me about the best and worst shows you have played.
THE best shows were the first I had when I was 23, 24 with a Gothic band I have played with at that time. The worst was in a little pub when really I didn’t get the sound that I wanted and that makes me mad all night long

What is the creative process for the band, and what inspires you to write your music?
I don’t stay there, bored, waiting for the inspiration come. I feel sometimes the adrenaline and inspiration to compose, sometimes the idea comes when I’m jamming on my one or with others.
What kinds of messages do you like to get across in your music?
I prefer people find the message on their own, instead of reveal it
