2018: many horrific applications of technology (social network for example with their push to have people volunteering their time and creativity for their IT business purpose, they are represented in the book by @maryshelley.fr, not to mention the applications of technology like breakcore and the other musical sub-style, or the society of spectacle created monster Bally Corgan).
Released on 6th April 2018 @ Rauchhaus, Berlin ... mention at Bandcamp article about Extratone genre ...
A true fundamentalist of Breakcore since year zero of this non-genre of music, as the style was getting more and more codified, he progressively tried to personify its attitude and even bring it outside of audio realms. Hence following the motto of M(C)ary Shell8Bit "Every cacophony is possible, infect the Underground!", the creation in his lab a la Bolognese of Sound Monsters such as skateboard-noise, gangsta-opera and his infamous poetry readings pretending to be Billy Corgan from The Smashing Pumpkins.
Riccardo Balli is also active as a writer: Anche Tu Astronauta (1998), Apocalypso Disco (2013), Frankenstein Goes to Holocaust (2016), all in Italian, this is his first full-length book in English.
