… infrantumi was recorded in the summer of 1997 in Massa, in the cramped attic of the Bocci house, all the equipment we had was: a sampler, a small mixer, an analog synth, a digital multi-effect, an electric guitar, a cheap transistor amp, a low wattage monitor, a vintage drum kit and a turntable. For recording we decided to use a mini-disc four-track recorder and a single microphone; all the tracks have been transferred to a 2-inch reel to reel tape recorder and mixed without any editing or additional outboard.
