"I love to think creative and be creative in many things... artistic passion has always flows inside me: IT'S IN MY DNA... and I don't want to give up."
Making electronic music since start of '90s (during the years of university studies), Andrea is a keyboard player from the italian big city of Milano, composer and producer of melodic and emotive "mind voyaging" soundscapes, covering various genres from Electronica, Chill Out, Ambient and New Age - Space Music to Trance and Hybrid Orchestral Soundtracks.
His distinctive sound and touch pools influences from big names of electronic music, film and games composers (for example Jean Michel Jarre, Vangelis, Enigma, Mike Oldfield, Robert Miles, Ferry Corsten, Giuseppe Ottaviani, Hans Zimmer and Steve Jablonsky, James Newton Howard, Joseph Trapanese, Inon Zur, Sam Hulick), merging orchestral sounds with the electronic and acoustic.
Even if he started playing keys very late, with 9 albums released (the first five during MP3.com golden era) he has been quite productive in the distant past before heavy health problems (mostly with tendons and neuropathies) happened and made him slow down with life and music producing. However not giving up and reinventing his sounds, 3 different album projects are in process.
Not bound to a single style, Andrea isn't typically mainstream,
but very untrendy trying to build something deep musically
that goes beyond the fashion of the moment.
But because melodic and emotive things usually catch his ear, he often finds himself at ease with strong melodies and chord structures riding on fast beat.
That's why he found instantly himself wandering also towards Trance at the end of '90s, even if not fond of the mainstream music played in italian discotheques.
Andrea's online success started over on MP3.com, where he achieved some first place chart positions and some hundred thousand downloads worldwide, selling his music all over the world and earning him a respective fanbase, happy to discover and listen to his music.
Since 2009, after the two No Ordinary Human albums, Andrea evolved his cinematic musical path learning more about orchestration and orchestral sampled instruments merging their sound in his electronic and acoustic mix.
For various reasons unfortunately the new album of that kind is still not finished yet.
Recently he moved back also to the old roots of classic electronic soundscapes (Jean Michel Jarre, Vangelis) and Trance Dream sound for his latest projects.
Beside music other artistic passions flow inside Andrea... as inventing and writing sci-fi stories, as doing computer graphics (he has done all covers graphics and design for his albums), as having practiced chinese martial arts like Wing Chun, Taiji Chuan Chen style, Hung Gar, Tang Lang or Qi Gong and meditation, as well Shiatsu "massage" art and Reiki.
He is fond of tv-series (various genres), videogames, sci-fi novels and... cats.
He is part of the UK label Earth Academy Records (E.A.R. )
since 2007, publishing his albums under their catalog.
