Drummer from Turin (Italy) with over 15 years of experience. I put passion and concentration in all my projects, listening deeply to what the composer and his music ask me to give the highest quality in every job. We work to give life to your music and our passion, the most beautiful job in the world! Contact me and we will find the ideal solution!
I have always breathed this magnificent air from an early age, I am fortunate to be born in a family of musicians.
I have had many different experiences, bands ranging from pop to prog metal, Metallica tribute band, Dream theater, Genesis but also of great Italian and international songwriters such as Pink and Madonna, up to the greats of modern rock such as Muse and Foo Fighters.
Over the years, and with the advance of studies, I have tried to study many techniques and many genres such as Jazz and fusion, which have led me to have my own style and approaching more recent genres such as Djent and Math rock .
In recent times I have dedicated myself more to myself, to my drumming, to mixing and to my personal projects that I hope to make you feel soon.
I started creating Drum Covers on YouTube and soon many more videos programmed by me with playlists soon released.
In the meantime, I invite you to watch my channel, hoping that it will inspire you and bring us to know.

I know personally Christian and he is one of the best musicians I’ve met. His versatility and knowledge of different genres makes him fit for every kind of song. His ability to master and compose a drum part quickly is a plus. I suggest to everybody the experience to work with him, moreover he is a nice person with a great personality.
excellent drummer, precise and accurate in touch. super available for any problem
Hands down the best drummer I've worked with. Clean and precise, he can easily jump from the softest jazz riffs to the heavy djent blasts. 100% would rehire!
Interview with Chris
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: There is no predefined genre, I get jobs from pop to metal! But the most frequent are on rock music, progressive metal, djent ... and strangely pop!
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I never leave a job halfway through, I continue until I reach the goal
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I always try to bring first what I am asked, once I find the meeting point I try to give something more about the suond, the groove, something about me that can be recognized in my style. But never ignore the initial request.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: As the main point of my work, I first try to understand the customer's request. I think it is necessary to listen fully to his request to establish a good relationship of collaboration, I don't try to make my ideas prevail, and once I find the right way, I try to jot down as many tracks as possible to give him more solutions.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: My studio is a very comfortable and modern place where coffee never fails! I use Logic Pro X to record and mix some cards, but I mainly use Tascam 16x08 to get a balanced sound supported by different Samson and Shure microphones. The recording room is perfect as it allows me to have a sound that is not too dry but very compact, large enough to record two drums at a time. As batteries I use a Pearl Midtown for more compact sounds but with good high frequencies, very suitable for funky and pop. Instead for a more rock / metal or simply generic configuration I use my Drum Shop USA, the Meinl cymbals and I'm sponsored by EVO Drumstick.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: There are many drummers I am inspired by, drummers of the past, with whom I grew up and studied, such as Neil Peart, Ian Paice, Steve Smith, Stewart Copeland, Jeff Porcaro, Simon Phillips, Vinnie Paul and many current drummers such as Matt Gartska, Matt Halpern, Jay Postones, Dan Searle e Tomas Haake. But I also draw a lot of inspiration from the musical styles dictated by the period such as the sound of Metallica or Smashing Pumpkins, Incubus and Limp Bizkit.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I usually work in my studio in Turin, where I have everything I need to be able to create and record. I work for some musicians in Turin and Milan, but when necessary I move to the recording studios requested by customers.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Be direct, ask any question. The clearer you are, the easier it will be to work.
