Ptolem

Francesco has been playing keyboards since he was a shy kid wearing bow ties at piano recitals, where he performed works by Chopin, Prokofiev, Scriabin, Szymanowski, Bach and Granados, among many others. He later turned to bass and electric guitar, playing live and recording with pop/rock, metal and electronic groups. Oh, and, no, he doesn't wear bow ties anymore.

Beside Ptolem, Patrick (pbrocca.com) creates music for films, television and multimedia. He has a "hands-on" extensive musical knowledge in many different styles. Early in his career, for instance, he played and recorded in Sweden with the most sought-after metal producer Daniel Bergstrand (Meshuggah, Strapping Young Lad, In Flames, Darkane,...) and with Swedish metal band Meshuggah’s amazing lead-guitarist and producer Fredrik Thordendal. More recently he's been hired to work on numerous Hollywood movies, such as the 2005 Locarno winner of the Suisa Prize for Best Score, Duane Adler’s God Waiting List, or Cut Off, the ten million dollar movie featuring Faye Dunaway and Malcolm McDowell.

Nicolas has been playing sax and drums and sung with a wide variety of jazz, metal, punk and rock bands ever since he was a young boy. Over the course of his whole life as a musician, he has developed an interest in electronic technology and music recording. Now he is a brilliant free-lance sound engineer working for theatres, shows and bands playing various kinds of music, ranging from ethnic to pop-rock. In between live acts in Paris and Liverpool he’s specializing in records and film productions.
