About This Project

Alkemya (1997) was a trio of musicians tired of spending hours sitting in front of the PC to democratically decide the direction to follow. They therefore decided to turn back to improvisation yet without giving up the opportunities provided by the use of the computer. Thanks to technology it is possible to see and edit the result of a real interaction among musicians on the computer screen.
So, Alkemya’s music is substancially “live-performed”, it’s a reaction against the unbearable coldheartedness of so much electronic music, generated exclusively by the process of superimposing and editing different tracks.
Alkemya band was performed by : Maurizio Dami (Alexander Robotnick) – Lapo Lombardi (Ludus Pinsky) – Ranieri Cerelli
It can’t be classed in a specific genre, fluctuating among ambient music, electronic music, trance and sampledelic music.
