Bio: SCHiLLiNG is a London based producer, sound designer & label owner. Born and bred in Milan, he grew up listening to his dad’s vinyl collection, mostly made up of rock n’ roll, classical music & italian hits from the 60’s; since his very early days he developed a worship for music, listening and analyzing it obsessively. Honest drummer, lazy singer and unsuccessful pianist he studied sound design and electronic music production between Italy and the UK and has been working for several years with artists, sculpting soundscapes for exhibitions and installations. He got mainly influenced by the music of the 90’s which is his favorite decade and especially by the UK scene, so he develops his own taste following the legacy that genres like Jungle, d&b, breakbeat & hip-hop have left. Schilling massively employs environmental sounds and home recordings in his productions, essentials to create a personal style and loves to discover new kinds of music which allows him to step up in the process of artistic “contamination” which is the foundation of his work and philosophy. When he plays live he uses either digital and analog devices like keyboards, synthesizers, MIDI controllers and samplers, along with analog affects such as delays and reverbs. His workflow doesn’t follow any path: he just canalizes his feelings into a very natural and uncompromising process that leads him to many different musical approaches, wether collaborative or individuals. When he’s not absorbed by music he tries to figure out how his life would have been if he chose to be a sports journalist!
