How did you decide to start creating audiobooks about sex?
Erotica was the first subject that came to my mind, I had to share experiences, fantasies and play with my listener. it turned me on just to imagine a stranger, a traveller wearing headphones and feeling uneasy when the content was heating up surrounded by people that had no idea in what erotic world he or she was being immersed. I visualised it as a one off season with 7 episodes to simply copy the series format. I decided to insert sounds, melodies and special effects to generate different dynamics and flows.
What do you hope these audiobooks will accomplish?
With my storytelling I hope to trigger reflection and sensations. I hope to challenge imagination and curiosity thus creating a unique sonic palette to assimilate and weave an addictive and engaging edge.
Can you tell us about your new project Mirrors?
I tackle all things linked to mirrors: history, science, myths, disco balls...I like to address one subject at the time. Mirrors have always fascinated me, they have a weird power. At times I avoid them specially at night or I have captivating conversations with my alter ego. Everyone has a mirror story to tell...
How does Mirrors differ from you previous work?
My stream of consciousness about Mirrors is roughly 25mins long and is a single track, no episodes. BadBadTati's imprint remains a very well curated narration punctuated with evocative sounds and melodies for the atmosphere, this won't change.
How did you find your voice in your writing?
Print was not enough, so I decided to press the recording button and animate my content. Like this it became 2 dimensional and immersive. I want the listener to be inside my bubble, on a discovery journey, kind of in a trip, dipping into knowledge, irony, absurdity. I have been recording more random subjects. I wrote a Manifesto about life, a poem about love, a meditative soundtrack. I am allover the vocal places and I love to search or record the perfect sounds and create moods that fit my audio content.
