CLOCK SESSION - MARIO ARICI "What I would like to say after 15 years of djing is that the idea of music changes, its musical identity is constantly enriched by new artistic pulses"
Mario Arici born in Brescia, sourrended by punk and rock music, enriching his passion becoming closer to electronic music. Later he become Resident Dj of the most revolutionary local of his hometown: the "Liquid Imbalance".

From 2015 he is Resident Dj of "DISCO Volante Culture Club" in Brescia.
Playing music is a bit like telling a story, especially that of ourselves, we musicians. In today's world music it's very complex to label an artist with a certain genre, and it's increasingly essential to be open to new influences and experiments. How does this affect your set and your productions?
Playing is a bit like telling a story, but not always that of ourselves. Over the years an artist embellishes his culture through multiple sources and under different aspects. All this involuntarily or voluntarily ideas are assimilated and proposed in my musical productions and dj / live sets. What I would like to say after 15 years of djing is that the idea of music changes, its musical identity is constantly enriched by new artistic pulses.
For years, one wonders what the key is for an artist to pervade the soul of the listener with his own music. Is there a secret?
The only thing that allows an artist to pervade their audience is to create music with recognizable and memorable elements, such as a melody, a captivating groove or the timbre of a voice. Important artist just describe themselves through their music, through true music.
How does your musical idea come true? Is it a purely intuitive development or a largely structured one?
My idea of music, as I described in the first question, is developed through a continuous evolution depended on the interests that I develop during my life life. I never thought I would get to the point of buying such different records, which is undoubtedly reflected also on my productions, which over the years have undergone considerable development.
