The first phase of Slow Wave Sleep started in 2015 by Italian guitarist Emilio Larocca Conte in order to add soundtrack to stories set in a surreal world.
An important shift happened in 2018, when the debut "L'Ultimo Uomo" has been produced in a single room in Berlin and published by Cockroach International Production on January 23rd. This record represents the first time for Emilio singing songs in which his eclectic background flowed into a cinematic songwriting with lyrics in Italian. A few months later, the second album "Chroma" is released together with the music video of "Elogio della Follia", produced thanks to a crowdfunding campaign, and a band is born to bring the slow-wave sleep live in clubs and festivals. In February 2019, Emilio, Gilberto, Stella and Gabriele recorded the upcoming new album live in the studio, helped by Mimmo Crudo (Il Parto delle Nuvole Pesanti, OndAnomala), documented by the music video of Valzer Nero.
Inspired by water, SWS’s music is made of seamless sounds which adapt to any container in order to serve the narration and to recreate a dreamlike, “liquid”, mood that goes beyond any musical genre. Among the individual songs there is no explicit reference to the whole concept, making them understandable independently as well.
