The project “Ego” is based on the contrast between Human and Android. Human represents humanity, emotionality, instinct, while Android symbolizes rationality, the desire to excel over others and achieve goals. Love is the antagonist of Android and represents the love in the life of Human.

The Concept

Human is an important individual in society. He lives the weight of his great responsibility to others, who see him as a reference point. All that surrounds him is the duty to stay high and dominate over everything, even over his emotions.

Thus, he begins to have doubts about the choices made in the course of his life, that have led him to a prominent social position while sacrificing passions and happiness. This unhappiness manifests itself in the form of Memories, that bring out the beauty of nature and the thrills of adolescence.

Android, however, is lurking and tends every day, with reasoning, to stifle those Memories by highlighting the stakes that would be lost by giving in to instincts and dreams. In the meantime, Love suddenly reappears into Human’s life, destabilizing his existence and his certainties.
But Android succeeds by deception in turning him away, by explaining that he is a grown man, he has responsibilities and that all the sacrifices made so far are not worth a few days of illusory happiness.

Thus, Android copes with Memories by relegating them as far as possible.

Love and Human meet again, but Human is now completely apathetic crushed by Android and his role in society, devoid of any nuance and point of view.

The encounter is abruptly interrupted, and subsequently no words follow to highlight the emptiness of the soul of Human, who years later finds himself old, Memories tormenting his soul again, turning every abandoned dream into regrets.

But the wisdom of the old man will succeed in pacifying each torment. Human and Android will find the way of forgiveness, Human deciding to tell his story in a book, which will be delivered to Love before catching up with God. This book is called Ego.

The Characters:
Human, Android, Love, Memories

Making Of Playlist

not yet released

Any musician will tell you – the mixing process is a crucial part in music production. Davide Sgualdini is a master of the sonic world and can make a huge difference to any project, whichever the musical style is. He continuously dedicates careful attention to the music he works on in order to elevate it to its highest potential. Since I began to work with Davide, my music has never sounded better. I can confidently say that there are two periods in my musical life before and after Studio LaMorte!

The day Antoine Fafard discovered Davide Sgualdini and introduced his work to me was a revelation. What a day of joy that was. Like Ken Scott did for the Mahavishnu Orchestra album “Birds Of Fire”, the approach and sonic vision he brought to the mixing of my drum kit (on the album “Sphere” by Antoine) was entirely stellar, refreshingly exciting and had a real unique character that was instantly, MAJORLY arousing to my ears and spirit. I was astounded. At that point he became the new standard for me – an engineer with whom I look forward to working on many projects together. His expertise and relentless, tireless dedication to whatever he’s working on is only the “icing on the cake” element to his vastly superior abilities as an engineer/producer. Davide’ a rare one. And an equally beautiful guy to work with. I cannot endorse his all around excellence highly enough!
Thank you Davide sir!
