Yup! I’,m working on it, another new album and I’m very excited as I already have 5 songs done (just tweaking). And in the midst of writing 2 more.
I always find it so exhilarating writing, playing and producing new music. It is such a process that is so fulfilling, when I start off with an idea or a riff, start to build and layer and make it into a song. My process usually starts off with the rhythm, a bass riff or drum track. To me that is the foundation and from there my ears take over as I hear in my head what the song could and should be. Then I start layering, it could be guitar, it could be keyboards, or a virtual plugin, in essence it could be any instrument I play in which I start laying down tracks as it reverberates in my head. Then I listen to it on my hour to an hour and a half ride to work daily, continually playing it over and over and over. I hum to it, sing to it, make noises to it, to get down what more I want to add to the song. When I get home that evening (after listening again the whole ride back) I will rush up to my studio and lay down a few test tracks just to capture the right riff’s or vocal phrasings, this way I won’t forget what I wanted it to sound like or add in. This process can take only a few days or even is some cases months before the song is finally were I want it to be musically. Then the next step is the mixing and production that needs to be done to finalize and really make it a sharp, sleek and sounding great. Again on my hour and a half ride to work daily, I repeat continually playing the song over and over and over. This way I hear where I want to balance the instruments, add embellishments and ornaments to achieve that professional sounding song ready for release. This is my process that works for me. Oh, for those of you that may ask – I don’t have a name yet for the album that will come to me at some point. I do have some idea’s so I might need some help. What do you think I should name it?
Keep checking in on it’s progress and eventually a release date.
W’ell as my talking head video explained around a month ago about the song prior to the release of the album,”This is My Life”. You need to play it as loud as your speakers can handle without distorting the sound. You need to play the video in a very dark room on an large High Def screen TV with the music as Fucking loud. You also should be some what buzzed on your drink or drug of choice to revel in the experience of site and sound. You got It?
On a side not -one of my old band mates, Gary Citro (aka Peabody) commented after seeing a preview of the video that it harken’s back to one of the Lampshades original songs called, ” Krakatoa” (east of Java). In which was another hard driving song but had some lyric’s sung by Gary.
A straightforward tune that might be
its own anthem asserting: “this is your moment”
and fortifying its message with a strong double-
tracked main vocal. There appears to be some
beat anomalies though one never knows if these
are intentionally placed or artifacts from a rebellious
effect plug or two.
The instrumental break is sparse and somewhat disembodied
and the lyrics perhaps a bit redundant. The sound is more
’neo-garage’ then it is ‘recording studio’ polished but allowances
should always be made as this is part of the ‘appeal’ of Buzzi’s
One wonders if the author was up against a deadline (self-imposed or otherwise)to complete it – There’s ‘more to this life’ than we are given here both thematically and stylistically. Perhaps the entertainment adage to ‘always leave the audience wanting more’ has been employed here with skilled hands (and ears) and for those die-hard fans of Buzzi’s music out there ‘This Is My Life’ might be the sonnet they’ve been waiting for. – JoeZworld
I’m super excited as tomorrow June 15th the album “Aldo Buzzi -This is My Life” is set to be release on digital downloads and in CD format.

The Muse is song #11 on the album, a song from inspiration, your inner muse. A song reminiscent from my early Genesis influences. The lyric’s brings you into mythology, although it sparks some conflict with your own muse and what inspires you. Nice celestial flowing music with a beautiful middle interlude. –
Crazy in love as they say, “just another love song” or as PIL puts it “Not another Love song”. Well whatever it is, it is a nice flowing love song with some nice piano work behind it and in the lead part. I included below (the 2nd video) an outtake when I was recording this video -thought it was amusing.
The premises of this song is about a dude that can’t find love and it becomes an emergency case of NO LOVE. The song first starts with him getting brought by ambulance to the hospital. Once there, the nurse and doctor does not know how to treat him. Later in the song he takes over talking about his love emergency. I have so many idea’s on this one to be a video in the near future.
It’s not too late to help my emergency to get play on spotify
This song gets back to some of my roots back in the late 70″s early 80’s Punk, New Wave era. A little like Iggy Pop (but not exactly), I think you’ll here some of the early influences from Max’s Kansas City and Mudd club Days.
The 4th song on “This is My Life” inspired by the Paul McCartney album “Egypt Station”. There is one song on Paul’s album that I really liked that was, I guess the most commercial successful song on that album, “Come On to Me”. I enjoyed the back and fourth melody’s that inspired me to right this song–Laughingly I first called the song Come On Paul McCartney – Well obviously I changed the name of the song to Come On Come On.
