August 2016 On August 20 I will play at the 5/4 Prog Rock Festival at Lee's Palace. This time my "Maurizio Guarini Circle" will be just a duo, with the great guitar player Matt Campbell. Some backing tracks and experimental arrangements to give a different taste to some songs of my album and to other Goblin works.
March 2016 Starting my solo live project, "Maurizio Guarini Circle". Debut will be April 2nd at the Opera House in Toronto, opening for the prog band Magma. The goal of my live project, on top of playing my music, is performing live tunes that I played over the years, never played live before, and that in my opinion are worth to be shared. This will include less known Goblin works, other soundtracks that I worked on, and more.
January 2015 I started thinking to my next solo album. Temporary title is "Spare Socks", and will include new songs as well as old compositions waiting to be given life, like I did in "Creatures". For now is just an idea, no plans for release date.
January 2015 I will attend at Shock Stock in London ON on April 24/26 and probably at Hero Fest in Kingston on April 11/12. Stay tuned.
January 2015 After a few month of work we are ready to release or new Goblin Album "Four of a Kind". We went with PledgeMusic for a crowdfunding Campaign. Most likely we will sart touring in the spring presenting our album live.
August 2014 Attended at Electric Eclectics festival in Meaford to present an experiment with interaction of real midi instrument with imaginary instruments in virtual worlds. For instance, I've built a virtual environment based on Opensim 3D platform where several avatars can login and virtually play together using real midi instruments in real life.
March 2014 Third leg of tour added for March/April. Southern US from Florida to Texas to Arizona to California. Steve Moore of Zombi will join us as a second keybard player.

November 2012 Trip to Australia with Goblin. We performed at the Melbourne Town Hall (sold out) and I had the occasion to play live using the huge 9500 pipes Town Hall pipe organ. Two days later we performed in a movie teathre, playing live the score of Suspiria in sync with the movie. Unique experience, was the first time, people were hypnotized. Great Australian experience!
October 2012 - Second trip to Japan with Goblin, just one Year after the Prog Fest. This time I flew from Toronto and met the rest of the band directly in Tokyo (they flew from Italy). We performed at the Hibiya anphitheatre. It was a three band event, we were the headliners. Legendary Van der Graaf Generator played just before us. Again, a very positive experience in Japan after last year Prog Fest.
