Personal music history

I started playing & studying music since I was 3 y.o. I studied piano for 5 years, then I developed my classical studies entering and playing in the town philharmonic orchestra timpani & percussions.
Around 1999 I started playing bass with my very first bands and then got into heavy metal and progressive music by mistake.
I then started my first progressive and power bands and releasing some demos and EPs.I joined PATHOSRAY (my first important band) in late 2004/early 2005 and with my band-mate Ivan, I consequentially started and activity as studio manager/sound engineer with our established musical company called ARTESONIKA and started to teach bass & music theory for for it in some schools, and private.
I then joined all other musical projects I am involved in (FAIRYLAND, SYRAYDE, MIRRORMAZE) and started to produce young bands all around the world.

Goals for the future

  • 
Touring as much as possible with SERENITY
  • and making the best albums
  • reaching always new fans!
