About the Tony's TAMBORDER:
You are also an instrument maker: you created the Tamborder. How do you create an instrument? Where did the idea of creating an instrument that creates sound come from?
TONY: Every gesture always hides a basic culture: I come from the art academy, from drawing. A person that comes from drawing, from painting, clearly comes from an impact with color; I turn to music first with a colorist aspect, that is, the music for me is in color, for me the combination of colors is fundamental. When I go to Africa, I see that there are colored things… I used to say: I play the drums, everyone's drums, but what is my drum? So I thought of combining a bit of modern electronics with what is instead the sound of Africa and the Tamborder was born, which means frontier drum. An instrument was born over the years, perfected but unique. I made Kalimba's notes with that instrument, I can make a complete composition with that instrument. I have been to America to do music therapy and to universities to show this instrument. It was born like this, by chance, I can't tell you how the path went, it was magically born from a mistake. I was looking for something, on my own I was trying to mix crazy combinations and this unique sound was born.
