A SIDE PROJECT, ON THE STAGE SIDE

As TOVEL, I relaunch the figure of the author/interpreter. The idea derives from my need to draw my personal aesthetic appearance, experiment with new linguistic updates, technical evolutions and originality. My direct, live involvement with other musicians becomes therefore the expression of my creative act.
