Interview with ANDREA MORSERO (In.Visible) and Pete Devine of Pete’s Rock News and Views (http://petesrocknewsandviews.com)
PD: What type of artist are you?
AM: I am an eclectic and curious artist. I am fascinated by the possibility of combining multiple musical styles and this is what I tried to do in my first three records, mixing electronics, world music, psychedelia and rock.
I am also interested in the flows and interactions between different cultures and expressive modes. I have a cinematic and perspective vision of music and, when I compose, I always try to have clear images in mind and I think about how each of my songs can be represented through a photography, a video or a painting.
PD: Tell us the brief history of yourself.
AM: I am a drummer and a DJ, with thirty years of career behind me.
at some point in my journey, I realized that being part of a band didn’t interest me anymore and I wanted to develop my music.
I moved with a good amount of unawareness about it, having never had any songwriting experience before my first record.
I relied on my instincts, on my experiences as a man and traveler and I tried to turn them into something that is still a source of fascination for me: I always feel I have a lot to learn and my path is always in progress.
PD: Who are your musical and non-musical influences?
AM: I am a musically omnivorous listener !!!
my rock formation is classic: Led Zeppelin, Rolling Stones, Beatles, Who, Doors, Jimi Hendrix, Stooges.
over the years I have been struck by Coltrane’s jazz, Miles Davis’ electronic turning point, Sly & the Family Stone’s funk and then came the new wave and punk, David Bowie, Joy Division, Duran Duran.
I have always been attracted to classical Indian raga and Arabic music.
in recent years I have really appreciated Trentemøller’s path and, basically, today, I listen almost exclusively to music with an electronic inclination (nu grooves, frenchtronic, deep & minimal tech).
I am fascinated by the literature of Paul Bowles and Pier Paolo Pasolini, by all the filmography of Stanley Kubrick and Michelangelo Antonioni and by the photography of Helmut Newton: I believe they are all elements that are present in the music of In.Visible
PD: What are your dreams and goals?
AM: always remain creative, produce good music, always be honest towards those who listen to me and wish to feel like a musician until the last of my days.
PD: Who writes your songs, what are they about?
AM: I am the songwriter.
each of my songs speaks of me in some way: through what I live, what I would like to live and what the people who go through my existence represent for me.
I try to express myself through words and sounds, which, for me, have equal dignity in the expression of a concept in music, indeed: I believe a lot about the power of sound and how it strengthens sensations and makes the words themselves more meaningful and evocative
PD: How do you promote your band and shows?
AM: Since they have become a fundamental tool for communication, I use all the elements that technology makes available to us, all the social networks, in which I am present and manage myself.
I believe it is very important to be attentive to the aspects of the digitization of our habits and I believe that getting to know them better is the best way not to be enslaved by them and gives the possibility to connect correctly with all the people in the world
PD: What do you think about downloading music online?
AM:I believe that music and culture in general have the duty to speak the language of our times and have the power to renew its message. I believe in the digitization process and I believe that the ease of using music today by anyone, in any part of the world, at any time, should be a stimulus for a musician to keep the attention on their production capacity and have the ability to be prolific and creative.
PD: What song do you wish you’d written and why?
AM: Oh … many I would say.
I try to transform every song that I discover and excites me, into a creative drive and continuous impulses: this is music for me.
PD: What are some of your pet peeves?
AM: I don’t have
PD: What is your proudest moment in music?
AM: the next
PD: So what are you working on at the moment?
AM: I am working on some alternative projects to In.Visible and on experiments in the field of sound reinforcement. I am also preparing projects regarding my live activity and its channeling through formats and streaming.
PD: What music have you available online and where can we buy it from?
AM: all the music of In.Visible is present on all digital stores, on Spotify, Youtube and is constantly disseminated through my social networks.
