SILVERSNAKE MICHELLE is a musical artist and rock singer-songwriter.
She began as a theatre actress in Turin where she studied at Teatro Nuovo and Tangram Teatro.
In 2013 she undertook a personal musical research path. Since then she has been composing and interpreting her own songs, under the name of SilverSnake Michelle. Her stage name is a symbol of rebirth and wisdom, and it represents life itself.
It all started that night when I dreamt of a very dear friend.
In the dream he asked me how much longer I would hide myself from myself.
He told me that in the long run this would kill me, by my own hand (as he did).
I woke up crying and began to watch that demon I rejected so much.
And night after night... I scraped away from myself an opaque skin that was not mine.
Without me noticing, Silversnake was born.
A desecrating and irreverent rock woman? Yes, of course, that too.
But don't ask me what genre I do, because I snap and on instinct I'll answer loosely with a "Rock!" (also "Milf rock" when I'm in the mood for bullshit).
And it's all much more faceted, less boxed in.
Sometimes I feel Dadaist. In my own way.
Yes, a sort of Lady Dada...
Mind you... I said Dada!
After many years, I wanted to give a concrete structure and shape to my musical vision.
To create an artists' community.
To capture those who enjoy art, making them feel part of the creative process and supporters of an artistic project.
Thus was born SNAKE MACHINE.
There is never just one " I " in artistic emotion.
The " WE " is always at the door pressing in.
In performance there is cohesion, matching, tuning or dystonia.
At the end, individualities go back home.
But more conscious, enriched.
They will come back to seek each other and to create. Together, stronger.
What are song lyrics if not poems?
I then transposed song lyrics back to my mother tongue.
So poetical compositions were born.
Poetry is an urgent and instinctive form of writing.
Brushstrokes of emotions.
Sudden. Disjointed, messy.
Soaked in disrespectful incoherence.
But above all fleeting.
What better representation of life?
