A fusion of sounds and words

In the deepest woods, Flint Juventino Beppe finds an arena that never lets him down.

Flint Juventino Beppe's artistic expression is a constant advocacy of the individual's free will and personal autonomy – without irrelevant intrusion of the private sphere. The documentary Exhaling Music tells of Beppe's intense and life-threatening breach with religion when he was 17. His childhood religion could never follow him into adulthood.

Having no political preferences, Beppe has nevertheless always felt powerful liberalistic undertones occupying his mind: an esteem for individual freedom permeating all his art. Hence, Beppe is constantly dreaming of a world without religions and
violating politics.

Beppe is diagnosed with Tourette's syndrome and Asperger's syndrome. The social limitations often connected to these syndromes might explain why Beppe has no conventional musical education.
