XUXU is a project born to the fact that I enjoy experimental music. Still there is some passages with ambient influence in here. This combination didn`t fit into my other project name, so here is another one: XUXU.
I actually hate myself a little bit for all this different names, but it seems right for me... And very complicated for all the listeners. But there are some differences in my project.
XUXU is pretty much born because of Unexplained sounds group. A community with Raffaele Pezzella as "headmaster." (Look it up! Recommended.) He has also mastered this album for me. Another artist from this community is Nicola Locci who made D.R.A.R.T. A little noise/ sound machine I use on this album.

XUXU is really something I feel very familiar with. I enjoy doing these experiments. And I also do a lot of them, so next album is almost finish allready.... That`s why I think I could make a serie out of it all and using the classical OPUS order. It maybe ain`t right but hey... Some innovation is allowed.

I have also decided that XUXU releases will come with a CD (in plastic wrap) and a poster (30x30 cm) Collectors item. ?!
Coverphoto for this release is taken by me in Bosa, Sardinia, Italy. (And the coming up releases will be from this place too..)

Well... I hope you actually can enjoy this music. It isn`t too noizy after all..
