Massimo Del Genio
"Watch a man play for an hour and you can learn more about him than in talking to him for a year."
Massimo Del Genio started playing organ when he was 8 years old.
Advancing to the guitar at 12 he plays in several cover bands (ie "La
Villa Strangiato" RUSH tribute). At 20 years old he started to working
in recording studios as an engineer and sessione man. He played with
one of the more notable demential groups from north Italy "Dave Galera
and His Avanzi".
After different experiences in video production and web development he
founded megabass.it, web based bassist community, hence his new
experiences as bass player in rock groups as OltreConfine in Milan,
Glam in padua and Wow Why Wow.
Throughout this whole period (since 1992) Max was always in contact
with Chris Boulet as they had worked together on Chris's first demo
tapes in Italy (at Max's recording studio in 1992) and also Chris's
first CD "International Soup" besides being a very accomplished
guitarist an extremely inventive bass player and an more than adequate
Max is also very good on the Chapman Stick which he learned how to
play in 48 hours before recording the second album of Chris Boulet
"Monkey With A thumb". Later, while he was in Milan, he met the
official italian endorser of Chapman Stick Virginia Splendore, bought
his one "American Graphite" and played in some gigs with her.
Right at the moment that Max decided to leave electronics completely
and play only acoustic harp guitars Chris Boulet and Willie Oteri has
yet again turned Max's world upside down, convincing him to become the
IKM laptopper (sic), the newest musical instrument available.

My Jazz Story
La scienza è come la musica classica: entrambe aspirano ad essere
collocabili su una pagina scritta mediante un linguaggio e delle
regole. Dunque, se un musicista dovesse ragionare come uno scienziato
sarebbe costretto a dire che il jazz non esiste.
Science is like classical music: both aspire to be placeable on a page
written by a language and rules. Therefore, if a musician were to think
like a scientist would have to say that jazz does not exist.
