The Last Five Minutes is a project by a half of Sparkle in Grey: Alberto Carozzi and Matteo Uggeri.

Following an input by stella*nera's label manager Marco Pandin, Alberto Carozzi recorded four minimal pieces on electric guitar, improvising on the concept of playing as less possible. The four pieces became then five by the collaboration of Matteo Uggeri, who added tribal beats and weird samples. He then mixed the whole album, named "The Last Five Minutes", an invitation to manage tension through patience.
