More about Starmus Festival

We were waiting to announce this for some time, now it's official and we can share our excitement for what is arguably the biggest and most unique live event in Nosound history.

There are no words to describe what means to play at Teide Observatory for Starmus international astronomy festival, where also Rick Wakeman and Brian May will play, with an advisory board that includes Peter Gabriel as well, and with prominent figures from science, culture, the arts and music like Stephen Hawking and Richard Dawkins.

Counting the days to the 24th September..more details can be found on the Facebook Event Page and the Starmus Festival, more to come soon..!

In Celebration Of Life
(mp3 & flac download)

There are not many words when music is speaking. When I told Alec Wildey about something I had in mind for a new Nosound track and we discovered that he actually wrote a poem with the exact same title and concept, we both knew we were on something special and meant to happen.

It's an exclusive preview of the works in progress for the new Nosound album, and most of all a way for all of us to support all people like Alec fighting a hard battle, and hopefully to learn as well something from them. A celebration of life indeed.

Thanks again to Alec for writing such highly evocative and powerful lyrics. In all honesty without his words this song would not exist, they were the real inspiration behind it!

This will be available only at these gigs, so do not miss it! And if you want a taster, here's full instrumental version of From Silence To Noise from Lightdark - Instrumental:

After last summer's Kscope gig we're really excited to come back in UK, playing NOSOUND music in duo like on 'The Northern Religion Of Things' album, and again as full power band but this time with a full extended setlist!

More details coming in the next following days, but it's already possible to buy tickets for all the gigs!

You can get a taste of what you'll hear 11th/12th July as a duo:

and 31st July/1st August as full band:

We're still deciding what will be the setlist for both formations..we can't promise anything, and we have a few new songs we'd like to play from 'Afterthoughts', but we'll take into consideration your suggestions: reach us on Facebook and Twitter and leave your comments and suggestions.

new album, gigs, minitour

We are happy to announce that first half on next year should see a new studio album from Nosound !

Still untitled but with a few tracks already demoed (and many more already written!), it will be the result of a more cohesive work between the band members, with very special guests to give it an even more different edge.

In the meantime, between the flow of ideas, we are at work on more imminent things as well! One or two releases between now and the new album, 4 gigs this summer (duo and fullband!) in UK, some more ideas for a minitour, live album..


2013 was arguably the best year so far for NOSOUND in terms of releases and feedback.

First half of last year we released our new studio album Afterthoughts, the best selling album in the band's history, featuring Chris Maitland on drums and for the first time vinyl and dvd-audio high resolution surround formats.

Later the same year we reissued our second album Lightdark, in a remastered/repackaged version including a limited white vinyl and dvd-audio high resolution surround formats.

We also played some key promotional shows on radio and tv that helped greatly gaining some more visibility. Once again we'd like to say 'Thank You' to all of you, old and new fans, we're here thanks to your amazing support buying our albums, interacting with us on social medias and sharing your thoughts about our music.

Back to present, the end of 2013 and first months of 2014 were busy with some work in studio finalising demos and material for new a new album that will see the light tentatively early next year.

At the same time we're trying to work on the live side of things to bring the band live on stage. Giulio Caneponi on drums and Marco Berni on keyboards added loads of new inspiration and fresh energy in the band personal and musical mix, and we all can't wait to publish soon the first confirmed news/dates..stay tuned!

Top 10 seller in 2013

NOSOUND is in Top10 overall and Top5 Kscope artists best seller on Burning Shed in 2013!

With June's No1 on Prog charts this marks a fantastic year for Nosound. We'd like to send our most heartfelt thank you to all our fans: you supported us and waited for the new album for over two years. We worked hard to deliver what we consider our best album to date, the reaction was overwhelming and showed us we're going towards the right direction in our endless journey with you.

There are big plans for next year, and more news and free exclusive material to come for the Festive season..follow us on Facebook and Twitter and don't miss these out!

" The clarity which reins supreme on the mix of this new album points the compass in a new direction...No afterthoughts or worries on this album. It is another stellar performance. Don't miss this latest chapter in the story."
Mark Johnson, Sea Of Tranquillity 5/5

" Despite its bleak subject matter, the record is a life-affirming experience, and few other albums have ever matched its magnificent combinations."
Jordan Blum, Popmatters 9/10

" You can never underestimate music like this as there is a lot to be heard beneath the surface."
Tommy Hash, Ytsejam 4/5

" April is very early to think about my album of the year list, but with Afterthoughts Nosound has set the bar pretty high indeed... Afterthoughts comes highly recommended indeed."
Marc, Prognosis 10/10

" The work of Nosound is a must-own for any person celebrated this current return of prog music or any real lover of any kind of music."
Bradley Brizer, ProgArchy

" A perfect album to get to embark on a journey deep thoughts. I would see it as the perfect complement to Anathema's Weather Systems."

" Nosound is a genre in itself. If you're not too addicted to adrenaline, discover this album, you should like me succumb to its charm."
Alter, 4/5

" If you like Nosound without hesitation you can buy the new album, because you will not be disappointed. And if you had no contact so far with this band, it's worth looking around for some samples, because you can lose a good music. For me the big 5-Star." 5/5

Band updates

(picture by Manuspi)
During the writing and recording of the new material, Nosound as an idea has gone through several changes, and somehow so have Nosound as a band. Paolo Martellacci (keyboards) and Gigi Zito (drums), two long time friends and fantastic musicians, for both artistic and personal reasons decided to follow different ways than Nosound. As much as this makes me sad for both personal and artistic reasons, I'm also happy they'll have more time now for their other projects and also to feed more our friendship that goes beyond the band. We wish them all the best, knowing that their mark will always stay with us and on what we have done together.

At the same time there's always something exciting about new directions and beginnings, and this was very palpable during the final stages of working on the new material. I'd like to welcome Marco Berni (keyboards) to Nosound...he'll be the new man behind the keys, buttons (and sliders!) for all our sounds, as well as try new ways to play all the parts and guide all the volumes with only two hands and two feet. He started building a custom 'Nosound hardware controller' to make the task easier..and that's just the start!

And we'll introduce to you very soon the man behind the drums on the new album material.. although he won't need any further introduction..

Nosound new studio album update

Electric guitars together with piano are going to be a big part of the sound of the new album..

Writing and all demo are finished, recording will start in September and the official plan is a limited edition EP released in November (containing new and exclusive material) and full album following early next year in cd/dvd and vinyl.

New videos will be included in the EP and the album, and new official merchandise will be available as well!

Event and description

After a series of concerts in England, Italy, Holland and Germany, Nosound are back in a semi-acoustic formation (voice, keyboards and guitars) presenting for the first time in Italy the album The Northern Religion Of Things.

Following the late 2011 Nosound 'duo' performance at Union Chapel in London (opening act for Anathema gig), the music becomes again intimate with ambient and electronic influences, enriched with acoustic guitar and piano, and accompanied by visual sequences formed by various videos released by the band.

The setlist will contain some songs from The Northern Religion Of Things, a piece not played in this arrangement before and a new track from the upcoming studio album which will be released at the end of 2012.
