“The moniker Healing Force Project, coming straight from the Albert Ayler record, it’s a first, strong element showing the relationship, in the artist’s way to conceive Music, between it and its healing power, and the will to embrace the listener in a warm and thoughful experience too. Since the first release in 2010 on Acido Records, Antonio won the attention of a discretely large audience absorbed by the listening of the peculiar mixture of jazzy sounds, Detroit-techno-driven structures and free-form collages. This could result confusing for the unaware user, yet it matches to it a steady power to evade reality and to shape imaginary landscapes. A big factor in doing that is played by the amazing and evocative artworks of the records on Sequencias, Berceuse Heroique, Sun Cat Recordings, Nous, Eerie, Bedouin, Firecrackes and Eclipse Music. Healing Force Project’s music could be best described as a Dusty Time Machine able to summon sci-fi atmospeheres inspired by afro-futurism, yet brought in a more ethereal and a-politic territory. HFP is psichedelia, indeed.”
- Before Healing Force Project show the 50-minutes-long modular-synth Mudwise’s live-improvised set took place on the same stage, completing 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.

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.
paynomindtous‘ co-founder & graphic designer, Cristina Ruggieri [1993, Alba, Italy] has recently completed her studies at Accademia di Belle Arti in Turin, the city where she lives. Beside messing around with materials and shaping stuff, she’s passionate about the overall listening experience, whether is it live or in her bedroom filled with stuffed animals.
