10. What song of yours do you think is your best?
With Lolita Terrorist Sounds I always think the next song that I will compose (I always demand the best from my-self), with my other band Viti di Titanio (Titanium Screws) I’m proud of my drum beat played on “Naguine”.
Maurizio Vitale has been in the limelight for last few years with projects and live and studio teamworks running through the most varied music genres.
Lolita Terrorist Sounds doesn’t want to be hostage to the dictates of musical styles, to the need of composing music following traditional rhythmical movements and tonalities, it doesn’t want to be considered a music based exclusively on noise. Wants to be noisy, dissonant, atonal, discordant and mocking at the melody, but at the same time melodious, tonal, harmonious when required.
Viti di Titanio (Titanium screws) combine Anglo-Saxon origin sonority with the musicality and the auteur song based on Italian and Mediterranean tradition. The arrangements are notable for the deconstruction of the guitar playing, the experimentation and the noise, but the band also give space to the song in its classic manner and compose melodious vocal structures that successfully convey the messages of the musical compositions. The accurate and poetic wording of the lyrics, makes the songs hermetic, but the directness of the refrains soften the inscrutability.
