Here below you can find the usual little interview I do to all my SL friends who have something to say about their passions and works in the uni- and meta-verse :)

Do you want me to use your real name?

Yes of course, Roberto Tardito

Where are you from? Torino, Italy.

How long have you been playing music?
I started studying music when I was five...so definitely almost all of my life!

What instruments do you play?

Mainly piano and guitar but I like to play other instruments too such as ethnical ones whose sound is easily recognizable in my albums.I have a deep passion for thes ones!

How did you discover SL?

My manager told me about SL at the end of 2007, and I took the decison to do a sort of test.
I've always been very curious about new communications tools and actually SL is above all a social network that allows to share music in a very easy way.

Which hare the influences that get you to where you are today

I've been always listening to music since I was a little child.
As a matter of fact every kind of music I've been listening to influenced my style.
Among my favourites I include international artists as Peter Gabriel, Bruce Springsteen, Paul Simon, Genesis, Deep Purple, Yes.
The italian musicians I like the most are Franco Battiato, Ivan Graziani, Angelo Branduardi, Ivano Fossati, Francesco De Gregori,Fabrizio De Andrè, Francesco Guccini..

Do you think SL can be a valid showcase for your RL works?

Definitely I think so.. I started doing a few concerts in order to promote the album "Controvento"..and due to a good feedback of the audience I finally did up more than 100 live gigs.What I like the most in SL live music concerts is the chance to reach with ease in the same moment people living in different parts of the world.

How would you describe your style?

It's very hard for me to answer to this question... I consider myself as a craftsman...when I write a song I put together my thougts and my feelings with all the music and the literature I have absorbed so far.

Which are the sources of your inspiration?

I'm attracted by different musical genres , often with anything in common
Often from these contaminations source new ideas ...
My lyirics are rather inspired by my fantasy and by all the novels and poems I read...
