We are sharing our interview with Valentino. I’m the frontman of Tomorrow’s Tessellations.
Twist Online : Who or what inspired you to launch ‘Tomorrow’s Tessellations’?
Valentino : I was watching The Joys of Painting with Bob Ross and he was talking about tessellations. It lead me to think about how we live our whole life in patterns. We wake up, work, and sleep… Forever. So this band is my way of breaking those tessellations and creating new ones for tomorrow.
Twist Online : Our readers would like to know about the other members of this project?
Valentino : Of course! Randy is our drummer who also mixes and masters the albums with me, Noah is our live keyboard player who makes his own amazing music under Lentebloom, Thomas is our bassist and him and I were in our first band ever together back in middle school, and Matt is our lead guitarist who has shredding capabilities beyond what I can understand. I love them all and they all bring their A game to live shows and sometimes at the studio.
Twist Online : Tell us about your upcoming release “A Short Rain From A Cloudless Sky,’?
Valentino : A Short Rain is all about my experiences in the last year and a half. The album is split perfectly down the middle into two sides. Good and bad. Happy and sad. Upbeat and melancholy.
Twist Online : What kind of response you are expecting from the release?
Valentino : Hopefully a good one. It’s a bit different than our last record. A little more straightforward and less conceptual. So hopefully it opens us up to people who are open to listening to the project more casually instead of an intensive storyline like the last one.
Twist Online : Working in studios or performing on stage, what attracts you more?
Valentino : I’m much more of an onstage guy. I love doing live shows. The studio is fun, but I’m a perfectionist in there. Live shows are just a place to let loose and have fun.
Twist Online : Have you set some goals to achieve?
Valentino : Absolutely. The upcoming reissues and the new album were the biggest goals. So now it’s all about playing live shows and trying to get a small tour going.
