This track of mine was inspired by various movie soundtracks and i’ve produced it with no reference to any in particular. The mood is kind of spy-thiller and builds up nicely and smoothly. I hope you like it as much […]
This track is my renaissance because it’s the first one i’ve produced after 14 years of break from music. It represents my first attemp to produce something with new gear such as Ableton Live 9 and Ableton Push. After 18 […]
1986 – Taito. Originally composed by Tadashi Kimijima, the main Bubble Bobble theme has accompained my childhood like no other videogame soundtrack. It’s been years since my last game with this arcade but as soon as i listen to it’s […]
1992 – Psygnosis. I’ve loaded Agony’s disk on my old Amiga 500 literally a countless number of times, but I can’t recall the game itself. Why? because i didn’t load the game to play the it, but just to listen […]
1988 – Taito. This was one of the cutest games i’ve been playing as a child. Who wouldn’t love a little yellow kiwi (but i thought it was just a simple chick) that needs to defeat enemies in order to […]
1987 – Time Warp Productions – Rainbow Arts. This game was a perfect clone of Super Mario Bros videogame, but i remember it for it’s nice intro soundtrack by Chris Hülsbeck. This is my own remixed version where i’ve used […]
1990 – Nintendo My favourite game on the Super Nintendo console, by one of my favourite videogames music composer, Kōji Kondō. This is my own “orchestral” version, where i’ve managed to change the whole sound mood while keeping all the […]
1991 – Capcom. This whole game had a distinct soundtrack for each character’s level. This particular one is the Vega character and is distinguishible from the others thanks to its westernish/spanishish sound and rithm.
1985 – Sega. The simple yet engaging soundtrack was accompaining the player while virtually riding the motorbike in 5 leverls of adrenalinic racing and breathtaking overtakes. I remember playing this game more for it’s engaging soundtrack then for the game […]
1993 – IdSoftware. I’ve played Doom for days and days. I’ve created also my own mods. But i’ve lost all the files. Sometimes i wonder if i would have become a game programmer if i was born in a different […]
1987 – Technos Japan Corporation / Taito. This game was one of the first co-op games i’ve played. I still can feel the pain in my right-hand’s fingers that reminds me the thousend times i’ve pushed that kick red button […]

Eames Lounge Chair Manufacturing in the Vitra Atelier We have visited the Vitra Campus at the end of 2010 while being in Basel for New Year’s evening and it was worth the journey. Really worth it! But now that i’ve found this […]
I was reading this article on Gizmodo and had an epiphany: third dimension “revolution” is or it’s not comparable to the color vs B&W revolution in visual arts? If we consider gaming part of visual art, i think it is. But i […]
“Zombie” Cookies are a perfect example of a badly used technology I’ve recently found this news on Wired about a USA lawsuit against some major USA websites that seems to use Flash cookies to re-set browser’s cookies (the standard cookies […]

So i made it to Melbourne. Flight had a slight delay but I’ve made it. I spent the entire saturday walking around (mainly to keep me awake). Walked from 7am until 2pm: Southbank, then back to the Yerra river, then […]
So the delay due the French strike made us land in Singapore with 3 hours delay. The good thing was that due bad weather conditions there was an air traffic conjestion so also my connecting flight was delayed and u […]
Just a year ago I wouldn’t imagine the future of print to be so close. Am i talking about the iPad? noooooo, that’s way too old… this is the real new technology to read newspapers! I wonder how they are […]
Yesterday i was window-shopping and i’ve bumped into this cute little thing. I couldn’t resist and i had to buy one. It’s a 30 GB external USB 2.0 hard-drive. Still I couldn’t make up my mind: is it a large USB […]

Following up on my previous post about bit.ly not checking for click-fraud and as i’ve recieved some comment about the “proof-less” post, here is a screenshot i took this morning. It’s clear (and i hope you’ll trust me on this […]
So, what’s this and why is it interesting? So this is called QR code. Here is the official denso-wave website dedicated to the QR code (as they have invented it, it’s the best place to get its specs from http://www.denso-wave.com/qrcode/index-e.html). Maybe […]
For the few people that yet don’t know it, here is the short explenation about what is http://bit.ly and why i believe it is useful. If you are familiar with Twitter you might also be aware that you can’t always fit into 140 […]
A great infographic video on Google.. maybe it’s a bit exagerated on the tones, but gives a sense on how big they are….
I’ve decided, instead of writing hundreds of words about the theory, i’ll just paste here a couple of graphs. Here is the first one: Which days of the above week is better? The bigger one is the 4th, that’s the […]

I’ve always been a Lego fan, since when my grandmother gave me my first lego back in 1979 (this one!) Then i grew up, and as a teenager there is no way you’d admit to anyone that you still like […]
.. you can’t miss the opportunity to get yourself a fully working mouse that is also small enough to easily fit in your desktop case without making it look oddly shaped…. So far until yesterday i thought the only solution […]
Here I am… after 2 hours flight and few kids screaming in the seats behind me i’ve finally landed and reached the hotel. Didn’t take any picture yet, mainly because i have been very busy playing with my new toy, […]

Here is a video i find very funny. This guy does a lot of street magic, and was able to mock up some nice fake applications on the new Apple i-phone. For those who wonder: no, it’s not real, it’s […]
Per quanto non molto intuitivo (parlo di me, ma anche google sitemaps in questo caso!) sono riuscito ad ottenere lo stesso tipo di informazioni a cui accennavo ieri (parole chiave usate per arrivare al mio blog): mi limito a riportare […]
