Dimitry at Hotone booth Namm Show 2017
Evolution (Sep 15, 2008) is my first album. The recording sessions lasted from March to August 2008. I worked on this record during the breaks from touring with my band Arcadia. My 2nd solo album is called Codex Magika and was produced on Sep 18, 2012. The Codex Videos was released on Sep 18, 2013. Watch some clips here. The Art of Complications is out since Jan 10, 2016. The next album, The Silent Watcher, was released on Nov 4, 2018. My latest album, « V », is out since Apr 10, 2022.
The song I played in this video is a new arrangement of "SL8", written on purpose for my upcoming partecipation to Wcopa 2022 which will be held in L.A. in a couple of weeks. You can find the original recording of this track on Spotify & Apple music.
In May I left to the USA for the Namm Show in L.A. representing my brand new guitar company "Inspiria Guitars". Check inspiriaguitars.com for pics & videos.
In July instead I took part to the "World Championship of Performing Arts", still in Los Angeles, California where I got 3 silver medals in my 3 categories "Original Works", "Contemporary Instrumental Music" & "Open".
In August I ended up on the Cover of the Argentinian Guitar Magazine & National Publication "Todo Guitarra & Bajo" together with Tosin Abasi, Lari Basilio and Richard Rosales.
Now I am getting ready for some autumn studio work in order to finish the 1st album of Scopelliti & Helgeland Project.
