Porcelain Raft is Mauro Remiddi’s main music project. The New York-based musician began his long, prolific career in Italy, the place of his birth, playing for small, local projects. After composing the original soundtrack for the 1997 Italian short-film La Matta dei Fiori, and collaborating and touring the world with various bands, Remiddi launched his first solo recording project under the moniker Porcelain Raft, and in 2010 released his first solo EP Gone Blind with Acéphale Records. In 2011 he signed with Secretly Canadian and released the debut Porcelain Raft full-length record Strange Weekend which peaked at #33 on the Billboard Top Heatseekers Albums chart. Permanent Signal, Porcelain Raft’s second album was released on Secretly Canadian in August 2013. In June 2015, Porcelain Raft released the five-track Half Awake EP via Volcanic Field, Remiddi’s label. The EP was available digitally and via limited edition cassette tape.
