Groundless is the result of uncountable hours of work and joy under the belief that music has to be created merely out of emotions, in order to touch the mind of the listener and the creators themselves. Producing this recording involved the hands and the help of many people, not all of them listed here, who supported this project in different ways to make it possible, sometimes not even aware of it. To all of you, we are very grateful. We hope you enjoy this album as much as we do. Your donation will serve to support this and future works of groundless music.

Safir Nòu (Antonio Firinu) is a composer, guitarist and accordionist.
The music collected in the album Groundless could be identified as “total music”, influenced by different styles and genres, from world music to post-rock to jazz. The sounds and the melodies bring the listener to an ethereal and hypnotic dimension, which is the “groundless” dimension indeed.
