Alberto Arcangeli by Gigi Gray.
He's gained plaudits as far away as China. He blends genres and styles in a totally inimitable way, all by himself. From the dreamy pop of Wheels and Love to the psychedelic title track Pop Down The Rabbit Hole, this album is a real gem. Meet Alberto Arcangeli.
Your debut album Pop Down the Rabbit Hole is completely composed, played and produced by you - how did you set about making this happen? And why on earth did you chose this surely most difficult method?
I began writing and recording songs by myself as soon as I started playing as it came naturally to me. I had a 4 track recorder and I just thought that it would have been simpler and faster to learn how to play all the instruments, rather than explaining to someone else how I wanted them to be played. In addition, I like working with other musicians, and I often ask for their suggestions, but I also want to have the last word on my music. Music is my passion, so I didn't want to have to make any compromises.
