At the end of 2018 I worked with an Italian videogames company for their latest videogame's soundtrack. The game is a ride in a water channel on a surfboard, available for all devices but designed specifically for VR platforms.
The soundtrack album will be available on digital stores from Friday 15 March 2019.
The new cover song Hide and Seek (originally written by Imogen Heap) will be available on all digital platforms on Friday 1st February 2019.
A big thank you goes to Jes Hudak for her incredible vocal performance and the masterly reinterpretation.

Just finished the cello's remote recording sessions with Judy Kang!
Judy is the resident cellist for Celine Dion and she's a wonderful person. I contacted her to play in a song of my next album. More info about Judy here

Drum recording sessions with Mike

I'm happy to be here in Montesilvano (PE), following the drum recording sessions!
Mike is a great musician and a wonderful guy with which to spend time together and we had a great time with all the people in the studio as well.
Recordings are going fast, tomorrow I'll record a vocal part on a song and in the next days bass and guitars...
My new album: recording sessions started...
March 17, 2018
After a few months spent in composing and arranging my new soundtrack album, it's time to start the recording process. This time I've chosen to involve a friend that will play an harmonica part, and this is where the recordings begin...
I'm pleased to announce that the brand new Victim Of Illusion's merch online store is finally available.
You could find 3 designs on different models (t-shirts in various shapes, hoodies and a mug).
All models are available for US and EU customers in order to minimize the shipping fees (customers outside US/EU can choose the lowest between the two).
Take a tour and find the article that fits your needs! ;-)
It's time for another Mohai Experiment's interview...
Probably the mystery behind this ghost band is catching in some way the listeners attention, so I had the pleasure to talk with Amy Balog (the blog master) and set up an interview with the band, uncovering some hidden peculiarities.
It was a big pleasure to be on the "All Chapped Up" podcast with Luca and Paolo (Victim Of Illusion's bassist and vocalist), hosted by the craziest and funniest man on this planet: Chris Chappell :-)
During the interview, we had time to talk about the last Victim Of Illusion's album "Invisible Light" and other non-music related topics. We also played a live acoustic version of Dewdrop (from Invisible Light album).
The full show is available for streaming at this link:
Dear friends, it's with my biggest pleasure that I wish you all the best for the New Year 2017. From my side, I'll put all myself in my awesome job and will work as hard as usual in all my productions. The new Boundary Exception's album is at the final mixing stages and will be released at the end of January; at the same time I'm working with Victim Of Illusion band for the 3rd album, we'll begin the recording sessions in January in order to release the new album at the end of March.
I'm also writing some new soundtracks for my 2nd solo album, expected for the end of the year. As always, too many things to do and too little time...but this is life
