Pur bien commencer la semaine, nouvel épisode de CTNetwork par Chaos Theory ! Cette semaine Pete Trautman et Chris Yukigami ont eu la chance de pouvoir recevoir l’artiste italien Vincenzo Salvia, qui était de passage à Paris, autour d’un verre et d’un micro.

Co-fondateur du label Sunlover Records, Vincenzo Salvia est un artiste phare du mouvement Synthwave et plus particulièrement de l’Italo Disco, genre qu’il chérit tant puisqu’ayant grandi en Italie avec les comédies italiennes comme par exemple Cinepanettoni, mettant en avant l’Italo Disco dans leur bande originale. Des influences qui l’ont suivies dans tout son parcours en tant que musicien, depuis plus de cinq ans maintenant.

Place maintenant au 19ème et premier épisode de l’année de CTNetwork avec Vicenzo Salvia et plein d’autres trucs, toujours en compagnie de nos chers Chris Yukigami, Pete Trautman,Nora, l’interprète ayant permis cet échange (et quelques autres invités), Vincenzo ne connaissant que très peu de mots en français et il s’en amuse sur son Facebook : «The only French words that I know are crêpes, profiteroles, tartellette citron, croissant, champagne and pâté».

My interview for Drive Radio. Not only pizza.

Question N°1:
Can you please introduce yourself to those that may be new to your work?

I started to join the synthwave music in 2012 with my first EP Voyage. After this album my music had lots of evolutions, jumping from nostalgic ballads to some groovy Italo Disco tunes.

Question N°2: What are your musical influences? What kind of music do you listen when not producing?

I’m from Italy, so my main influence is the Italo Disco. This kind of music was always included in some funny italian comedies (Cinepanettoni) which I always loved and still love to watch. When I don’t produce my music I sometimes listen to some chillout not to focus on pizza.

Question N°3: What is your earworm at the moment? What have you listening to on repeat recently?

In this moment I’m listening to the Vacanze di Natale ’83 soundtrack, in loop. I’m already in the Christmas mood!


Question N°4: What inspires you while working on new Music? What inspired you for the work on your THE SUMMONER track?

60% of my music is focused on pizza. 20% on girls, 20% on Milfs. That’s all.
When I worked on my THE SUMMONER track I wanted something powerful for my scene. I searched for some 80s workout music style because it had to be fast and hot like a pizza in the wood oven.


Question N°5: What programs and instruments do you use for your Music? What is your favourite VST you use? And which Drum Machine do you prefer?

I work on Steinberg Nuendo as DAW with some plugins such as Arturia V Collection, Minimonsta, Zebra 2 and OP-X PRO II. The last two ones are definitely my favourite!

Question N°6: What are your favourite Movie flicks and why?

My favourite ones are almost all the movies from Robin Williams. I loved him, he was always such a strong inspiration for me.
Another one is Rain Man, with Dustin Hoffman and Tom Cruise. I love everything in that movie, the story, the music (by Hans Zimmer), the interpretation from Dustin Hoffman was amazing.

Question N°7: What is the next step for you after the release of THE SUMMONER OST? A new Album? A new ep? Or other projects youre involved in?

I’m working on a new album feat. Pj D’Atri. He’s a crazy guitarist based in Austria. I also have a side project with an italian singer and we are focusing on some radio italo-pop tunes. Hope you’ll have the chance to listen to everything as soon as possible!
