"Name dropped in IKMultimedia Mag"

From the IK Multimedia Interview with Grammy Winning Producer Marc Urselli:


SA: Who are some of the artists that you have worked with in the past, and what has been your most recent project?

Marc: When living in Italy the bulk of my clients were punk/hard core bands. I did a lot of that because Italy has/had a great underground scene. Although I also love (and made) electronic and rock music myself, I didn't get to do much of that until I moved to the US. In NY the bulk of my clients have been jazz artists although I have been blessed to work with people like Luther Vandross, Roy Hargrove, Eliane Elias, Jojo Mayer, Jerry Gonzales' Fort Apache, Clark Terry etc… Last year I finally got every rock-loving engineer's dream gig when I got to record and mix the Capitol/EMI Les Paul and Friends' record "American Made World Played", which was an all-star tribute duet record to the 90 years old genius, composer, performer, father and inventor of the solid body electric guitar and features (among others and just to mention a few) Sting, Joss Stone, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Sam Cooke, Keith Richards, Buddy Guy, Joe Perry, Edgar Winter, Peter Frampton etc… It's a great seventies-rock album with a modern edge and it was produced by my dear friends Fran Cathcart and Bob Cutarella. Following to that I've been working on the solo debut of Vandross' background singer Paulette McWilliams, the solo debut album of Alicia Keys' background singer Jermaine Paul, some records for John Zorn's Tzadik label, some folk records and producing new emerging artists such as the NY singer/songrwriter Adrienne Arno or the amazing Italian guitar player Vincenzo Pastano.

From www.adriennearno.com:

For weeks now I have searched myself to find the right words to welcome you into my world and explain what theChurch of the Virgin Hunger and my music are about. I have to confess I am still searching. If I had to tell you in a single phrase what I, this Church of theVirgin Hunger, and the music you will find here stand for, my answer would be:

Passion, pure and complex

I found myself in theChurch of the Virgin Hunger after a long string of life experiences brought me to the point where I could no longer live in denial. It's a long story but I'll try to briefly summarize. I have spent most of my life denying my true passions and my true nature. I felt that in order to live authentically I had to risk losing the respect and security of the world I grew up in. In an academic, spiritual, and sensual sense, I was so hungry for the things my instincts told me I needed to be whole, but I continued to starve myself in order to keep a sense of control and security. However, this denial of my authentic self only made me feel more and more out of control and unhappy.

All the desires you ever had but never spoke of. The flesh you never tasted. The moment you never experienced. The want left unsatisfied. The virgin hungers. I don’t think there is anyone of us who isn’t touched by them. These hungers are a part of the landscape that makes up the human experience. They keep you awake, they spark lightning, and they feed the urges of the human heart. They warm the imagination and stoke the fire of the creative spirit; they make you crazy but they set you free. Ambiguity, desire, want, wonder, love, fear, lust, I’ve always dreamed I could build myself a cathedral from these feelings, and by doing so I could make my hunger a holy experience. This is how theChurch was born.

I think artists in particular call upon their hungers when they make their art, no matter if their medium is a palette of paint, the strings of a guitar, or the delicate structure of the human psyche. This time maybe it's the hunger of the ego, or next time it’s unrequited love. I don't pretend to understand every artist, but I know that which drives me. You could say I’m driven to do this because I feel like I was born hooked to a train that’s speeding away from me. And the only thing that rescues me is to surrender to this one passion and turn myself over to this music. I don’t know if this makes it any easier for you to understand, and I don’t know if it should. Ambiguity, desire, want, wonder, love, lust - they live on the vanguard of the soul and defy definition. I don’t believe anyone is epicure enough to tell how to define your passions, where they will find you, and what you will find when they do. The question becomes not what is the Virgin Hunger but rather, how hungry are we?

So if your life's journey has brought you here, you're not alone. I think eventually we all find ourselves standing before the doors of theChurch that our pain and passions have built...
