I was born in Locarno, Switzerland, on May 18 1992. Only child of a filmmaker/cameraman/mountaineer and a former kindergarten teacher, I spent most of my childhood in the mountains, with very few friends of my age. In a love-hate relationship with solitude, I started to develop a lot of passions, among which cinema, photography, computer graphics, science, mountain sports, and most of all, singing. I decided I wanted to be a musician at the age of 13, when I first heard Jon Lord, the organist from Deep Purple. I immediately knew that my instrument would be the Hammond organ. And that was it, until I discovered the blues, the 60s psychedelic rock and the 70s experimental electronic music, and fell in love with guitars, electric piano and synthesizers too. After high school, I started to train as camera operator and graduated as sound technician. My first real job was on a documentary by father, Fulvio Mariani, in the Himalayan kingdom of Ladakh. There, my inspiration was catalyzed by the majestic, desert environment, and when I got back home I had lots of ideas which I then developed into songs for my debut album. I produced ALLUVISION in 2015 at La Sauna Recording Studio (Varese, Italy) with drummer Dario Pedrazzi and sound engineer Andrea Cajelli, a wonderful man who really boosted my excitement and love for studio work but sadly passed away shortly after. Between 2014 and 2017 I composed the soundtrack for the documentaries The Silk Snow: Afghan Winter, The Silk Snow: To The Origins Of Skiing, Orbayu, SOS Bavaria and for the Swiss TV series Sottosopra. I collected the best tracks from these works on an album, and played them during a unique show with my band in December 2017, while the films were projected in sync. In January 2018 I released one of my earliest compositions, Mr Sorrow, a song that I had written in Berlin 5 years before while I was going through an emotionally bad phase. It's a quite minimalistic single that reflects my strong desire to get rid of the permanent sadness I was experiencing at that time.
