Between the end of the 90’s and the first years of the new millenium, a strong “crew” of collaborators keep on their dj’s activities, organising events to create an alternative space for electronic music. In the local club scene there is no space for the search of sound, nor for quality sound, music is only a contour to the dancefloor. There is a need for a balance between the dancefloor and pure listening, between body and mind. Our chosen place is the one that was then called “chill-out zone”.

In 2004, Laverna.net(label) is born. It promotes and spreads the work of independent musicians producing MP3 to download for free, thanks to the new creative commons licences allowing a “copyleft” attitude.

With the same aesthetic setup, the solo musician project called 'matera electronics' is launched. Some tracks like “glame”, are released.

In the summer 2005, dj-sets become live-sets, interily produced with two laptops and a Reaktor software, managed by a MIDI controller, and synchronized via ethernet.

In 2006, the album “nature” is released. It focuses on the relationship between nature and man’s cultural expressions, between natural elements and technical production. The sound is spare, sometimes evoking gloomy atmospheres, but it takes a definite melodic connotation, taking a place in that musical ground typical of the early 90’s electronic music.

In 2007 born the new project named 'molven'.
