After this last work, they separate by alleging «great conceptual differences with respect to the present and future of the band». In parallel, Marilina was exploring his path as a soloist: in 2012 he launched «The weight of the sighing air» through YouTube, a mechanism he repeated for «the presence of the people who leave» in 2014.
