- ifsounds are the images of our dreams and our nightmares. Music is just the shape into we turn stories, hopes and fears.
ifsounds is a project that joins the talents of five musicians very different each other in order to create a sound that could express an emotion, that could describe a state of mind, that could tell a story, that could allow anyone of us to make an inside trip.
ifsounds try to reproduce not only the world around us, but the world inside of us, because everyone of us creates his own reality and his own lifeline.
