Massimo Magrini was born in Lucca (Tuscany, Italy) in 1966. He had a long degree in Computer Science in Pisa University, with a thesis on musical applications of the Object Oriented paradigm.

Then, he collaborated with CNUCE/CNR (an Institute of the National Research Council in Pisa) for some years, building hardware and software for computer music performances.

During the late 80s, he played in a local electronic band (Jesus Blood), using self built analog and digital synthesizers.

In 1992 he created his personal project, trying to discover dark sonic areas between Ambient, Noise, and Minimal Music.

"Ampos", his first CD, had a great response from international listeners, and presented Bad Sector to the electronic underground scene. Several acclaimed releases of him were subsequently published all over the world.

Bad Sector's music has been also successfully presented live in several european countries.

Afe released "Retrovirus" in November 2001. After being unavailable on the market for quite a lot of time and ten years after its original publication, this album is going to be re-released on CD by Afe in late 2011.
