GILVIAN   is a one-man music project made of warm and thick guitars, electronic drummings and keyboards, and some heartfelt vocal melodies.
It is currently based in Rimini, Italy.




During the long quarantine time caused by the pandemic, I took my chance to work on a couple of home made cover versions I often played by myself through the last years.

As usual, they are personally enhanced, since I love to tribute their beauty this way.

Here they are for you, hope you enjoy them:


'Mad Sun' - an old and lovely Motorpsycho song, one of my favourites


'Perfect' - a Smashing Pumpkins song covered for a little adorable SP's fan who felt a little sad during her quarantine days...



England's music blog Beatbox Saboteurs shared the preview of my new song Labyrinth born from a collaboration with my norwegian friend and artist Per Oyvind Stene (vocals) as a recommended listening.

They also wrote some kind words about it (thank you guys!).

If they recommend it, so do I.


Here's the link to it.



Just recently, I finished recording/mixing/mastering my newest track, called Deep And Shallow.

I believe there's a strong evolution there, and those who listened to it told me the same.

The song is on a private Soundcloud link for now, it's being auditioned by fellow musicians, labels and people in general connected with me and/or with the music business.

I'm also working on new material for a new album: one other song almost ready to get to the studio, and other ones still in the process.

The new stuff is sort of more intense and rough, a little darker but sharp and full of energy, and with very different vocals on it.

I think I'm gonna really enjoy this new 2018 transition...


So here we go, my first video ever is out!!

It's a very special cover version of an amazing masterpiece by the band Japan that David Sylvian formed in the mid 70s: the song is Swing, from the album Gentlemen Take Polaroids (1980).
I fell in love with Japan as a kid, my first song was Quiet Life, and at that time I made the very early crime to download it illegally: I recorded it on a tape cassette after findiing it by chance scrolling the radio tuner (recording also the DJ's silly comments at the beginning and at the end of it, goddammit...).
And I guess it was true love if I find myself now handcrafting this tribute about 25 years later and as a musician.
I must thank Enrico Zavalloni (Enri Zavalloni, Mondo Cane) for producing this beautiful video and mostly for his powerful and mesmerizing keyboards on the song.

Enjoy it!!

Ed eccoci finalmente, il mio primo video!

E' una cover molto speciale di un gioiello creato dalla band Japan che David Sylvian formò negli anni 70: la canzone è Swing tratta dall'album Gentlemen Take Polaroids del 1980.
Mi innamorai dei Japan da ragazzino, il primo pezzo che ascoltai fu Quiet Life che già all'epoca commisi il precoce crimine di scaricare illegalmente: la registrai su cassetta dopo averla beccata fortuitamente in radio (registrando ovviamente anche i commenti del DJ prima e dopo il brano, maledetto...).
E credo fosse vero amore se adesso mi trovo, 25 anni dopo ed ormai da musicista, a forgiare questo tributo.
Devo ringraziare Enrico Zavalloni (Enri Zavalloni, Mondo Cane) per aver prodotto questo bellissimo video e soprattutto per le potenti ed ipnotiche tastiere che ha arrangiato su questo pezzo.

Buona visione!
