In the fall of 2019, after their gender confirmation surgery, Samuele came out as trans and nonbinary. Rested and at peace with themself, a feeling that had left them suddenly resurfaced: the desire to create. This is how Samuele came to dedicate themself to the creation of a book album: Une paillette dans l’engrenage, published in February 2023. Directly inspired by their own journey, this multidisciplinary project includes 12 songs along with a book that explores themes such as transformation, joy, and healing.
For this new chapter, they wanted to combine their favorite media, namely music, poetry, and essays to discuss individual and collective revolutions while using the lens of their own transformation on a background of lively music and catchy melodies.
