HomeCookingShare: To begin, who are you?
Granato: We are Granato, a band with an EP, "Corrente", and two single released, "Europe" and "Ultra". Our new tracks are ready to be released, starting from November. Our names are Francesco Bianco (voice, guitar and electronics) and Alessandro Cicala (electric guitar and electronics). "Europe" and "Ultra" are written and produced with Dario Giuffrida, who played drums and mixed and mastered the tracks.
HCS: How would you define your music?
Granato: Our music is a mash of rock and electronics. We can call it Electrowave or electrorock. But we don’t like to classify our stile into a specific genre of music: we explore music, listening to our soul. Every new song is an experiment and we don’t know, because we are not able to preview, what will be the result of our work. At the same time, we pay much attention on understandability of our music. Our aim is an equality between our satisfaction as artists and a strong, communicative and expressive connection with listeners.
HCS: What made you decide one day to embark on this musical adventure?
Granato: Granato come from various past experiences. Me and Alessandro, years ago, made music with only two classical guitar; then we used a computer and an electric guitar too. Now we want to play with a larger musical possibility, by including the voice and use a more understandable form and concept.
