Music[edit]

In 2014, Serafini (as "Seba") joined Japanese visual/Vocaloid band Ecthelion as a manipulator.[18][19][20] This line-up debuted at the band's first anniversary one-man show at Takadanobaba AREA on March 25, 2013.[21][22][23]

Seba had also teamed up with Yu Phoenix of Cinema Bizarre to create a band called Monochrome Hearts, which seems to have since dissolved.[24] Their first single, Your Knight was released on Amazon and iTunes in January 2013. Their second single, When the Night Kills the Day was released on Amazon and iTunes on July 13, 2013.

Seba was also a member of Italian visual rock band DNR (Dreams Not Reality), playing keyboard and performing vocals. During his time in the band, DNR opened up for Versailles on June 4, 2011 in Salerno,[7][25][26][27] and also played at the 2011 V-Rock Festival held at Saitama Super Arena.[27][28][29][30][31][32][33] They also performed as part of the lineup for V-Love Live International, which took place two days later on October 25.[34][35] With Seba's lineup, DNR was the first non-Japanese band to perform at the Stylish Wave event at Akasaka BLITZ.[36][37]

According to Serafini, there is also a Hope jewelry project, a collaboration with Soho Hearts.[7][38] Upon leaving Japan, he spent a week in Los Angeles hosting relief fundraisers alongside journalist and fashion blogger La Carmina, with whom he also contributed to LA Weekly.[11][39]

Later in 2011, he designed a ring in collaboration with Strange Freak Designs, which was featured in Accestyle.[40]
