Under the moniker TSVI, he continues to propel London’s rave underground scene and has co-founded the UK-based record label Nervous Horizon.

Matteo Zamagni is an artist working across visual arts, multimedia installations, film production, and electronic music. Through these distinct and intersecting creative forays, Zamagni connects an array of contemporary technologies, science and esoteric topics in order to critically explore the complex of crises that characterize a contemporary epoch of planetary scale environmental, economic, and social upheaval. While Zamagni’s multimedia artworks create accessible and at times interactive entry points into thinking through complex and essential issues, his music production Seven Orbits provides a further platform for the playful experimentation with audiovisual projects.
Under the moniker Paraadiso, TSVI and Seven Orbits released their debut album titled Unison with Shanghai-based label SVBKVLT, inspired by Italian folk music, noise, ancient choral acoustic compositions, and rituals.
TSVI’s and Seven Orbit’s live A/V performance at MUTEK marks the North American of their new project Paraadiso. Their work focuses on conveying a sense similar to those felt in ancient gatherings and ceremonies where the collective physical experience meant heightened stimulation at both the individual level and collective level. Stimulating experiences of synchrony and collective emotion between individuals, the artists seek to generate feelings of openness and inclusion.
TSVI and Seven Orbits created Paraadiso as a counter-response to the increased isolation of these last few years. Their debut album, Unison, was released in 2021 by the label SVBKVLT.
2019 saw the first release under Guglielmo Barzacchini’s (TSVI) new Anunaku moniker, a project inspired by cosmology and ancient mythology, combined with elements of UK underground club music.
