Italian Music: The Addictive Aucan Alternative Electronica Experience

If you like electronica, you’ll probably like Italian band Aucan’s sound. Then again, if you haven’t heard of or heard what Aucan can do, now’s your chance. Below you’ll find some Aucan tracks for you to sample. Beware, it’s kind of addictive.

Really, though, to experience Aucan, you need to see the band live.

Aucan is not just about music, it’s about visuals, performance deejaying, graphic design and media, in other words, Aucan is an experience. It’s a recipe which works and, amongst other things like a 150 venue tour, the band has even opened a Chemical Brother’s performance.

If you can’t catch the band live, maybe because you can’t make it to Italy (although the band plays throughout Europe), you can experience the band’s particular brand of electronica music in the comfort of your own home or during your own private mini-rave, maybe. Yes, on the Aucan website, there are a number of downloads which seem to be free! (a couple of the links don’t work though)

Founded in 20o7 via the world wide web, Aucan is Jo Ferliga, Dario Dassenno and Francesco D’Abbraccio.

Here’s Aucan’s music:

Stop reading, start speaking

Stop translating in your head and start speaking Italian for real with the only audio course that prompt you to speak.

Great video.

If Aucan’s music has not be used as part of a film soundtrack, then perhaps someone might like to consider doing so. Pretty powerful and atmospheric sound.

A Question: What Are You?

With my marketing and media relations English classes at the business school where I work, after a few lessons, I hit them with a seemingly very simple question, which flummoxes most of those in the room. That question is “What are you?”. It elicits any number of responses, and leads to many puzzled faces when I say, “Yes, true, and…”.

After several attempts, some of those in the classroom cotton on to what I’m looking for – remember these are marketing and media relations masters, but I also ask the students on other master courses the same question – usually around the time they are being prepared for job interviews designed to test their levels of English.

So what is the answer to this innocent sounding question? And what has this got to do with Italy?
