The Debut / Le Début project stems from the meeting in Lugano between Omar Enrico
Bernasconi (Re-count), a musician who has been active for years on the international
electronic scene, and Gioacchino Balistreri (Gioa), a soundtracks composer. The duo has
already started collaborating in 2015, producing a first instrumental EP with the pseudonym of
"The Manchine Diaries" (https://mx3.ch/themanchinediaries), performing at the Swiss electronic music festival Les Digitales.
Several tracks of the EP are still On Air on Rete 3 (RSI - Radiotelevisione della Svizzera italiana).
Only afterwards they have thought to compose some real songs, expressing in a complete way the fusion between their two artistic paths.
Five of these songs are part of the soundtrack of the documentary "écoute-moi Quartamedia",
written and directed by Balistreri himself, premiered at Castellinaria 2018 International Youth Film Festival, in Bellinzona.
The collaboration with the two singers Michela Domenici and Fabien Perrochon developed
through a parallel-track project, one in English and the other in French:
with The Debut / Le Début, the Swiss duo laid the groundwork for an innovative path.
It is proposed, also and not only through the contribution of audio-visual experiences,
to put the listener at the center of a unique and exciting journey, where the combination of acoustics and electronics is pushed to the highest levels.
It is the eternal debut. And it is, always, only the beginning.
