Velapene Screen"What If They Can't Trust You?" is my 3rdsolo release as Velapene . The writing was some of the better creative experiences ive had in a long time..Nearly a decade after my first release (Velatision,) "What if They Cant Trust You?"Is high energy , fine tuned , and expressive . Albeit itsnot without intention, finding a happy medium between organic and absolute creative control isnt easy for me... The sound of this upcoming album was influenced by the last 8 months after moving to Las Vegas . I was able to reallyfocus on what i wanted and truly listento what the music was asking of me.Forthcoming on The Centrifuge_______________________________________________________________________-Velapene Screen or simply Velapene is an electronic musician, Chris Ghiraldi. based in Los Angeles , New York and more recently Las Vegas.
