A methodical design process
Regarding the way he understands his own creative process, Luigi shows again his perfectionist and meticulous character: “If I have to choose, the truth is that I prefer to work alone in my studio to be able to focus completely on the rhythm and the technical aspects. For me, the way I create music is a methodical design process, in which I carry out iterations and tests until I find the result I am looking for. I could almost say that it is practically about coding, about programming something until you get to the final product. This does not mean that there are not feelings involved, everything flows in a very natural way, but I still like to be in control at all times,” he states.
“When I play live on synthesizers, however, I don’t like using my pre-recorded tracks, so I tend to go for improvisation. I think it is more fun for the public when I create new rhythms at the moment for them to dance. Of course, they are not as good as what I make in my studio, but they bring up all the essence of my music. It is completely different,” Luigi laughs. But this year has brought huge challenges. “My last DJ-set performance for Recall, just a few weeks ago in the vineyards of Langhe, Piedmont, was a mix of improvisation and a play of some of my tracks with a hybrid modular synthesizer, but it couldn’t be as special as I would have liked due to the pandemic. At the moment it is difficult to bring my work to people and see how they react, and this is a shame since music is a shared thing and its magic only happens when someone listens to it.”
