“Ich bin der Musikant mit Taschenrechner in der Hand”
Ever since I was a child, I always thought music as the soundtrack, like the backbone of my life. I’m not a musician, I’m just a fan of music and guitars, but their sounds, their cultural and political roles, their great energy has always accompanied me and helped me in so many, difficult and beautiful, moments of my life. In 2007, I wanted to try and combine this passion with the desire to write and tell the music and guitars, and I thought that a blog could be the perfect tool to make it knowingly, accurately and fun.
I started creating the Blog Chitarra e Dintorni ( http://chitarraedintorni.blogspot.com/ ) and then in 2016 this blog: Neuguitars. I do not believe in the distinctions of musical genres. I do not think classical music is superior to jazz and vice versa. I do not think electric guitar is superior to classical guitar, and vice versa. I think music, as Duke Ellington said, is distinguished by beautiful music and bad music, and I think there’s a lot of beautiful music around us. I am fortunate to love an instrument that has succeeded, like a few others, through virtually all historical epochs, affecting all kinds of music, all cultures. I guess the guitar has not stopped to amaze me and still can describe the age we live by telling it in its own way, in every way.
That’s why I created Neuguitars. I’m a guitar enthusiast .
But I’m also the co-founder of the netlabel AlchEmistica devoted to classical and contemporary music with Creative Commons license: http://www.alchemistica.net/home.php
