Papiro is a graphic designer, violin player, record collector and electronic music maker with a particular affinity for machines from the pre-programmable («my pets»). Early concerts under his own name sometimes consisted of a single chord, held for 30 minutes at high volume; or running 17 auto-accompaniment organs at once – with help from the audience – in an all night long performance. In the studio, meanwhile, he enjoyed endless modular patching and the virtues of overdubbing, which resulted in a couple of albums of which some reflect his italian-classical origins, while other move into the sonic territories of New Age and Ambient, but at the same clearly differentiate themselves from these genres by their restless and disturbing mood.
