"Mondo9", Hollywood nomination #6, the Good Omens 

 

ITALIANO: Ieri stavo togliendo ruggine da un vecchio cancello che dovevo ridipingere quando mi raggiunge la notizia della nomination numero 6 agli Hollywood Music in Media Awards​  per i "miei" The Wimshurst's Machine​.

There is also a filmed example of it: "Breathe" (the title track of the album with the same name). We recorded several versions…

Augusto sull'uso degli iPad per la musica dei TWM 

Un ascoltatore ci chiede come usiamo l'iPad per registrarci. Colgo l'occasione per rendere la risposta "pubblica". Anzitutto, per principio noi abbiamo soltanto software con licenza (quindi niente jailbreak): per registrarci usiamo diversi metodi (che talvolta variano da brano a brano, dipende dalle circostanze in cui ci troviamo).
