Hi to everyone! I would like to share with you my lateast audio/video project.
It is called AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 INSTRUMENTS and it comprise 13 video songs played entirely by me mainly with acoustic instruments collected all around the world.
You can find all the informations and listen/watch/download the songs here: http://www.alchemystudio.it/Musica/GiroDelMondo/GiroDelMondo.htm
I collect music instruments since 2001, when I went to India for the first time during my PhD. The very first traditional instrument I purchased was a sitar: it has a wonderful sound and immediately reminds of distant cultures and places. Just a few notes are sufficient to depict a distant country… During the following years I had the occasion to visit many countries, both for work and for leisure. Each time, when I got in touch with a different culture with its own musical traditions, I have tried to find some very typical musical instruments. So, during my travels and over the years, I collected a lot of instruments: several of them are very ethnic and have their own story about how I found them and how I purchased them. You can read some fun notes following the songs and the links you will find in these pages. My general idea was to collect cheap and “odd” instruments, that I can maybe use in my productions to give a distinct sound and a particular colour. I also built a couple of instruments following some ideas I have in mind. But I also have a lot of other “standard” instruments purchased in Italy at flea markets and in shops. Some other ones are part of my life and of my “musical history”.
I began to use these instruments in my songs and one day, in 2013, it came to my mind the idea to make some videos of myself playing my instruments, and to specifically compose songs to blend them together. I decided to put together sounds from cultures very distant from each other, both culturally and geographically. I decided not to follow any music-philological direction. I just played what it came to my mind in that particular moment, expressing my feelings and my musical ideas. I made very different songs, not confined to a specific genre.
Counting all my instruments, I realized that I have more than 80. I admit that in a single case, I asked a friend to lend me a specific instrument that I missed but that was absolutely needed to complete a song.
Eighty musical instruments from the whole world. And 13 songs that usually reflects memories of travels, ideas of distant lands, foreign cultures and traditional sounds, and depicts original atmospheres and soundscapes.
I finally decided to board on a musical journey around the world. Following the steps of Willy Fog in the novel of Jules Verne, I named my project “Around the World in Eighty Instruments”: follow me and enjoy this musical trip!

I’ll be happy if you share my project in your networks!
Shame on them! They have zillion dollars budget and they prefer to buy a stock track for 17$ instead of hiring a composer to make a custom tailored song! :-/
... or you can just spam them (just kidding… )
Make epic motivation ukulele happy songs and you will get lost in 10.000 similar and maybe better songs! Sad but true!
4 sales. the worst result in 2.5 years!!! what’s happening!? :-/
I have learnt that there are no predictable trends here… I stopped to worry! I had 20 sales a month without uploading anything, I had both low sale and high sales after uploads. Noe it is about 20 days without a sale. I have nearly 460 sales… I used to sell an item at least every 2-4 days
