Hi, my name is Giorgio. I am a native Italian man, a passionate lover of music. I left Italy 20 years ago and for the last 10, I am based in Barcelona, Spain. I have been a singer and writer for a swing circus band called, till April. All amazing musicians who taught me tons of stuff about all the possible aspects of music and with whom I share one of the most unforgettable moments of my life.
As one of the guys in the band is a professional sound engineer, he has taught me how to run the hundreds of shows we’ve played over the many years together. Thanks to that I learned how to use a mixer, the different types of microphones and how to set our stage before every concert. I loved doing the job as I felt learning so much about something that I get pleasure out. Best feeling ever! Thanks to this growing knowledge I decided to make my own recording studio at home to practice and create on my own.
In my earlier memories, it was my dad who introduced me to music with his vinyl collections. We would spend hours listening to David Bowie, Pink Floyd, Dire Straits, Depeche Mode, London Beat, Queen, and more and more of these cool people back then. Of course, I naturally learned how to use the turntable when I was very young. As the internet wasn’t yet an option to search for the lyrics.
Music has been since then my North Star to understand my passion and direction to take in life.
Some years ago, my path led me to Asian countries. I lived there for over two years and eventually fell in love with a traditional Chinese Violin called Erhu. It has been my best friend since and I have been practicing daily for two years up to now. However, there are a lot more world instruments in my home studios such as a Birimbao from Brasil or Kalimba from Africa.
Jiha, who is a guitarist and a percussionist, has a little collection of other unusual instruments like a Kanjira or a Woodpack Drum. With them, we create our own music samples and projects.
Jiha is not only my partner but also involved in this project with me. Together we create all the content, graphics, and research necessary to develop the creation of each article on this site.
With all these instruments we create samples to make our own music and often jam with our baby loop station and pedals. We love the unusual instruments. That’s where our site Soundswow comes from. We have minimal equipment and those instruments in our home recording studio, to share our love of music.
I want to give you the right knowledge to experience music to its maximum potential, saving you time and money from research and wrong purchase.
