Agostino's latest release, Wishes, in some ways simplifies by using only field recording and guitar improvisation, yet complicates by reaching for interesting guitar effects and mixing techniques. There is only modest manipulation of field recordings found here. Guitar tracks are layered, yet in a seemingly strange way they all communicate together. Breaking from his past use of electroacoustic instrumentation altogether, you are presented forthwith an intentionally purer experience.

Agostino Scafidi was born and raised in Montreal, Canada of Sicilian descent. His artistic journey stemmed from childhood, dabbling on a nylon stringed guitar and writing stories.

He began seriously pursuing music with dedication, determination and devotion in 1998. His first experiences were with rock bands, eventually gravitating towards solo work within the realms of electronic music. These contrasting arenas of creative application existed in tandem until 2008, where he would then focus on solo efforts and at the same time reconnect with his love for the written word.

Roughly two years after that new direction change would he lean exclusively towards writing, producing no new music. His practice of the guitar continued regardless, as a personal, private pursuit.

In 2015, Agostino Scafidi reignited and united his love for music and writing, embarking on his path once again. Refreshed and inspired.
