Do you remember your first connection of love to music that was the right impact to be a music artist now?

It was the day where my dad gave me an electric guitar on my 17th birthday, just watching him play in front of me and guiding me the basic chords to start off everything, till now.

Ryuichi Sakamoto – The Staggering Girl (Spotify)

Ryuichi Sakamoto – The Staggering Girl
(Spotify)

On his score for Luca Guadagnino’s (Suspiria) The Staggering Girl, acclaimed visionary composer Ryuichi Sakamoto says, “When approaching the score for The Staggering Girl, I wanted to incorporate the tactile sound of Valentino’s fabrics. So I asked them to send me some samples and utilizing special sensitive microphones, I experimented ‘playing’ the fabrics. I love the sound and how it forces one’s attention to a sound all around us, yet almost entirely ignored.” Score details at Pitchfork.

Afenginn, Danish String Quartet, Teitur – Skapanin (Spotify)

Afenginn, Danish String Quartet, Teitur – Skapanin (Spotify)
Spotify

Composer and musician Kim Rafael Nyberg aka Afenginn’s 7th album “Klingra” – a post-classical piece with roots in the Faroe Islands. With a sound palette of two pianos (played by Faroese Teitur and Dánjal), a string quartet (The Danish String Quartet), pedal steel guitar, synth bass and two drummers the track starts in an ambient atmosphere with small sparkling particles of dust and hope floating in the air. These are mixed with a distant Morricone-like whistling from Teitur, which gradually brings out a simple melody in the piano. The musical layers are solidified by the determined drumming and through a grounding maelstrom builds up to a climactic release.

Nagamag:
What are the genres that describe better your music style?

Dario Forzato:
Evocative organic music, a blend of acoustic and modern instrumentation with ambient atmospheres and a cinematic feel.

Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Dario Forzato:
I am an Italian-born composer and music producer based in Los Angeles. Having toured with RapScallions and singer-songwriter Kathryn Dean, I started writing music for visual media. My work has ranged from writing and performing the theme for Ubisoft’s best selling videogame ‘Rocksmith’, to scoring a variety of television shows, independent films, and documentaries. My ever-evolving music can be heard across a variety of entertainment media outlets worldwide.

Nagamag:
Do you remember your first connection of love to music that was the right impact to be a music artist now?

Dario Forzato:
I certainly do. It was the first time I realized music has an impact on me: I was about 6 years old and I was on vacation with my parents in Camargue, France. In that period I used to suffer some pretty bad stomach pains and that has been going on for the whole trip until one day I heard a fantastic guitarist playing flamenco guitar in the street and the pain "went away" (it didn't completely go away, but at least became bearable). And that happened multiple times during that trip. Don't know if it was just the music distracting me from the pain or something on a deeper level happened, but I know that after that I decided I wanted to start learning music and guitar. I have always associated music with traveling, since I would listen to a LOT of music in the car with my parents during our road trips and my mind would start going free with the notes. I definitely see those 2 factors playing an important role in how I write and create music.

Nagamag:
Which artists influence your music?

Dario Forzato:
I grew up listening to rock music, from Led Zeppelin to Sting and The Police, to Nirvana and Red Hot Chili Peppers, but I have always had a sweet spot for film music but never pursued that career path until I listened to composers like Gustavo Santaolalla, Hans Zimmer, John Powell, and Ennio Morricone. In this very moment I am a big fan of Nicholas Brittell, Jóhann Jóhannsson, Ramin Djawadi, Billie Eilish and all sorts of independent artists.

Nagamag:
Music has no borders and many of us we may listen to more genres that we are mainly involved. So share with Nagamag which track comes first in your mind from music but is NOT similar to your genre?

Dario Forzato:
Billie EILISH "Bad Guy"

Nagamag:
Of Course Nagamag would love to listen also which track from a similar artist you admire?

Dario Forzato:
Gustavo Santaolalla "Iguazu"
