Filippo Panichi

Filippo Panichi (aka fp, or groundloop,), in the time elapsed since long gone beginnings as a guitarist in bands of renown (Cries, OBO, Quinlan, NEMA) has gradually felt more at ease as a sort of organizer of sounds, captured or generated in many different ways. Microphones, synthesizers, objects, chosen for their emotional value or for their resonance, are left playing more than played, with all the irregularities of analogue and the glitches of digital. With more respect for chance than for tonality. We could say that he plays (regularly) in a band, that is himself, with his non-human friends. They live (and live-not) in Florence, Italy and they never move, nor go out of the not-house, partly (only) because of short cables.
