Mudwise is Nicola Lucchese’s solo project focused on the heavy-usage of modular synthezisers, declined in different styles and dynamics according to his track mood or the particular moment of the live performance (mainly improvised). He’s half of the Hatcp (pronounced ‘hatcap’) duo together with his brother Enrico Lucchese, and also a member of the Quatermont College quartet gathering Chevel (Dario Tronchin), the founder of Enklav. label based in the Italian region called Veneto, Marco Shuttle (Marco Sartorelli) and Von Tesla (Marco Giotto). He appeared in five different Enklav. releases so far, two of which as Mudwise [Cosmagnetic ENK005 and Entropical ENK018]. In 2013 he published also the 4-track tape called 4017 on the Italian label DOKURO [DK040].

- Mudwise’s show was followed by the 3-hours-and-half-long dj-set by Healing Force Project [Antonio Marini; we had the honour to interview him few months ago] to complete the line-up of the third preview-act of Path Festival, taking place each September in Verona, Italy, in many different venues inside the city. All the three Ouvertures were hosted by Path together with Soho Verona and Morse _. An excerpt of Healing Force Project’s set will be online for streaming as Recording #3. The video-report of the third Ouvertures night can be found here, while this is the report for Path Ouvertures act 2.
- We’d been shooting also another Mudwise performance before at Macao, Milan. See the third video for a 1-minute-extract (few lines below).

PAYNOMINDTOUS is a non-profit organization registered in December 2018, operating since late 2015 as a webzine and media website. In early 2017, we started our own event series in Turin, IT focused on arts, experimental, and dancefloor-oriented music. We reject every clumsy invocation to “the Future” meant as the signifier for capitalistic “progress” and “innovation”, fully embracing the Present instead; we renounce any reckless and ultimately arbitrary division between “high” and “low”, respectable and not respectable, “mind” and “body”; we support and invite musicians, artists, and performers having diverse backgrounds and expressing themselves via variegated artistic practices.
