A short collection of soundtracks for Fabrizio Borgio’s crime stories, settled among Piedmont’s wine hills and featuring Detective Giorgio Martinengo. Inspired by psychological horror and by the movie The Shining (1980).
From last Friday’s gig, here I am playing our own cover of Bauhaus’ Stigmata Martyr…wearing The Old Man’s mask. This is only the intro, full video link in the description. #bauhaus #postpunk #avantgarde #experimental #mask
The fourth Echoes From A Great Distance EP, “Entangled Astra”, is out now! You can search for it on digital distribution (Spotify, iTunes etc.). In this alternative rock band with psychedelic influences I play the bass and sing backing vocals.
Here I am happily playing my bass part for the song Prophets And Clowns, off our latest album It’s All Suggestion. An intense alternative rock tune featuring some social criticism and a short bass solo. Check it out!
Inspired by Derrick, Debussy, old cartoons, surrealism…and Lovecraft. I’ve recorded a soundtrack for the novelist Fabrizio Borgio’s crime stories, which are settled amongst the foggy vineyards of North-Western Italy.
“Ήτοι μεν πρώτιστα χάος γένετο.” (“Verily at the first Chaos came to be.”) Hesiod (ca.750 BC), Theogonia, 116. — The opening tune of my dark progressive album “Quantum Arkanum”, featuring stoner, sludge and psychedelic elements, with some classical flavour.
Large office buildings are responsible for a substantial portion of energy consumption in urban districts. However, thorough assessments regarding the Nordic countries are still lacking. In this paper we analyse the largest dataset to date for a Nordic office building, by considering a case study located in Stockholm, Sweden, that is occupied by nearly a thousand employees. Distinguishing the lighting and occupants’ appliances energy use from heating and cooling, we can estimate the impact of occupancy without any schedule data. A standard frequentist analysis is compared with Bayesian inference, and the according regression formulas are listed in tables that are easy to implement into building performance simulations (BPS). Monthly as well as seasonal correlations are addressed, showing the critical importance of occupancy. A simple method, grounded on the power drain measurements aimed at generating boundary conditions for the BPS, is also introduced; it shows how, for this type of data and number of occupants, no more complexities are needed in order to obtain reliable predictions. For an average year, we overestimate the measured cumulative consumption by only 4.7%. The model can be easily generalised to a variety of datasets.
