new solo cd on die schachtel

hei ho,

my new album another piece of teenage wildlife is out now for Die Schachtel (

"Taking plaintive tones of drone music and early electronic and tape experiments, 3/4hadbeeneliminated former member Claudio Rocchetti has absolutely defined a sound, building a subtle, majestic landscape. Using awide variety of instruments (synth, tone generators, organs, guitar, tape machines) he creates an absorbing sound that is mainly layers of loopsfading in and over each other, ethereal vocals, repetition, melody, noise. An emotional resonance with a tinge of melancholia that permeates every moment and creates a sense of longing and nostalgia" (label press release)
