David Monacchi’s eclectic approach to sound include both
the acoustic and the electronic world.
The real and the artificial. He easily mix them together and,
working with a lot of different sound sources, he’s able to

making music. Paesaggi di Libero Ascolto (Free-Listenings
Landscapes) is the colourful portrait of a joyful musical mind,
that deserve an attentive listening.
