Listening Sessions

— Xplosiva x Heated by iqos

The Listening Sessions is the format created in 2016 by Xplosiva for iQOS, for the promotion of the new product “Heated”.

The project provides a cycle of sound lectures, during which critics, journalists and experts, tell the stories behind albums, genres and musical movements that mainly influenced the contemporary music scene, in the beautiful settings of iQOS Embassies such as Casa del Pingone, historical 15th century Turin construction, and the majestic building of Foro Bonaparte in Milan.

The first cycle of meetings was centered on the Berlin trilogy of David Bowie, the international heritage of most innovative Italian artists, the recent trend of accelerationism, the Talking Head album “Remain In Light”, the bond between Andy Warhol and The Velvet Underground, the Prince masterpiece “Sing O’ The Times”, the hip hop contemporary scene and much more with Max Dax, Alberto Campo, Valerio Mattioli, Carlo Pastore, Gianluigi Ricuperati, Fabio de Luca and Giorgio Valletta.
