WHY-FI

After the release of Universal Laws in 2013, I returned to Italy the following year, but it took several years before Why-Fi could see the light.

Due to various reasons, in fact, I was no longer able to pursue my musical hobby on a consistent basis. However, I still found opportunities to record something every now and then, purely for enjoyment.

In 2022, I selected seven of these recordings that sounded good when listened to together in a sequence, and decided to release them as an album titled ‘Why-Fi’.

Please note that ‘Why-Fi’ is only available on popular streaming platforms such as Spotify, Amazon Music, and Apple Music, and is not available on CD.

WHY-FI

The inspiration for this particular track dawned on me during a period when I listened to ‘Fireflies‘ by Owl City repeatedly, day after day.

While this may seem like a personal observation, I believe that the song’s ambiance has subtly influenced this track.

This is also the only track in which my mother participates, as female backing vocalist.

In these lyrics, I focus on a particular group of individuals, similar to how I did in ‘New Culture Theory.‘ However, in that instance, my target was those who employ overly complex language to mask the lack of substance in their writing. In this case, I am criticizing those who are unconcerned with the quality of the content and only care about moving their body to the beat.

Let me clarify that I do not have any objections to music that is easy to dance to (in fact, I use and create such music myself). However, I believe it is essential to occasionally seek out music that is more intellectually or musically challenging and stimulating.

Although I initially intended for the track to be longer, the provocative phrase “Do you want some more? And stop!” appealed to me so much that I decided to truncate it abruptly for a more impactful ending.

The name of this track serves as an homage to the software I utilized during its composition. ‘Omega Revolution‘ is the only other song I have produced solely through Reason, a product of Propellerhead (now Reason Studios)

Interestingly, I have no memory of this particular song, except for the day I stumbled upon it while going through my hard drive where I store musical concepts and finished compositions.

If it weren’t for the unmistakable sound of my voice and the fact that the style is unmistakably mine, I might question its origin 🙂

This track was created in 2008 and was originally intended for ‘The Observer’ but was replaced by ‘Sahara’.

It all started when I decided to test the new sampler included in Ableton Live. Not wanting to use sounds already available but rather recordings made on the spot, I switched on the microphone and started recording the dialogues between some of my unsuspecting in-laws.

After selecting the clearest recordings and playing with the sampler, a Kraftwerk-inspired melody came to mind and the track gradually came together.

Another instrumental piece that came into existence somewhat accidentally, as I combined melodies that were lingering in my mind with recordings of an American speaker from the past.

In 2010, I had the pleasure of meeting Balasz Frank, also known as V.E.N. (Virtual Explorer of Noise), in Budapest. I had previously interviewed him years ago for a Brazilian music magazine that I was working with at the time.

During this meeting, he was accompanied by Simon, the leader of Servo.Hatred, a dark/electro/terror EBM band that had supported Combichrist at their Budapest concert in 2006.

The two had collaborated on a track called “Nothing Remains” and Balasz was kind enough to send me the stems, which I used to create a remix.

I modified the sounds by removing some, adding others, and rearranging certain parts. The end result is the closing track on “Why-Fi.”
