Performing with Odalisque during the first date of the Helldone 2013 tour. Supporting Beastmilk, Pertti Kurikan Nimipäivät and HIM.

I was born in 1977, the year of Punk and Star Wars.

I started playing the guitar in 1994, and have been active in black and thrash metal, progressive rock and metal, industrial and avant-garde music. Born and raised in the Alps surrounding Turin (Italy), I relocated to Finland in 2005 to continue my studies in Theoretical Physics. I obtained a PhD in Particle Cosmology in January 2010.

Instruments

I play 6 string electric guitars, and five-string fretted & fretless basses.

Influences

My major influences in writing music are Miles Davis, Frank Zappa, Igor Stravinsky and Arnold Schoenberg.
Al Di Meola, Allan Holdsworth, Eddie Van Halen, George Lynch, Paul Gilbert and Greg Howe are just a few of the many guitarists who inspire me in my musical growth, together with Jaco Pastorius, Tony Levin, Stanley Clarke, Jeff Berlin and Sean Malone for the bass. Through the years, I have combined music, physics and my interest in Oriental philosophies and Martial Arts by creating the concept of Dark Matter Guitar.
