Interview with Italian Bassist and Composer Alberto Rigoni by Mike Emiliani
So much to say about Italian bassist and composer, Alberto Rigoni and so little time! Rigoni’s musical projects are as far as they are diverse in sound and composition. Rigoni is best known for his bass work with the progressive metal band, Twinspirits alongside singer Göran Nyström, drummer Darlo Ciccioni and guitar players Daniele Liverani and Tommy Ermolli.
Twinspirts have released 3 albums since 2010 including, The Music that Will Heal the World (2007), The Forbidden City (2009) and Legacy (2011).
A stark contrast from Rigoni’s work in progressive metal and rock he released an album under the name Lady and the Bass with singer, Irene Ermolli, the sister of Twinspirits guitar player, Tommy Ermolli. The album was titled Groovy (2012) and featured a turn towards pop, electronic and dance music.
But it doesn’t stop there!
