about.

I am a composer, performer and sound artist mostly devoted to experimental sonic arts. I studied composition with Rosario Mirigliano in the Conservatory of Florence. I hold an MA in composition and music technology from the same conservatory (2012) and a Bachelor in Philosophy from La Sapienza, Rome (2006). I also completed the IRCAM Cursus in Paris (2013-2014). Currently I am a PhD candidate in the department of Media, of Aalto University, Helsinki, researching case-specific sonic experiences.

 

My artistic work, in the intersection between music, sound art and electronic lutherie, includes compositions, installations and mixed media performances, involving interconnected audiovisual ecosystems, where material phenomena extend in the virtual digital world and complex feedback networks are established between the two realms. With media artist Roberto Fusco I founded the audiovisual project quietSpeaker.

 

I am in the board of the association Äänen Lumo (Charm of Sound), to promote experimental music and sound art in Helsinki. I am a strong supporter of open and DIY culture, and my work is all available under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike licence.

 

My works have been performed or exhibited in Europe and Usa, for institutions such as Ircam (FR), Biennale Musica (IT), Ars Electronica (AU), Currents New Media (USA), Musica (FR), Impuls and KUG (AU), Muziekcentrum De Bijloke (BE), Centre Henri Pousseur (BE), STUK (BE), Boston University (USA), Nuova Consonanza (IT), Sibelius Academy (FI) and others.

Since my biographer is busy, I wrote this my-self in first person.

 
 

news.

This Sunday the 21st I will be sharing the beautiful stage of Bozar, Henri LeBoeuf Hall with Leonardo Melchionda and Federico Tramontana for Bozar Next Generation. Pieces by Giulia Lorusso, Stanislav Pili and my self.

Once again a very nice couple of days working with Tom De Cock in Bruges at the Concertgebouw Brugge playing and experimenting with percussions and actuators for the upcoming new Autophagy III piece. First sketch ready in April. Commission from Centre Henri Pousseur and supported by FNRS FRArt.

Really excited to finally play out last piece remote/displaced with quietSpeaker in SMOG Brussels tonight. Before us the mighty students of my course on instruments augmentation will present their discoveries

This Tuesday 26.10 at 7PM (Helsinki time) the mighty Luca Piovesan and myself will be presenting the current state of our co-composition effort, together with lot more interesting stuff! Thanks to Koneen Säätiö -  Kone Foundation, Suomen Kulttuurirahasto and Niilo Helanderin Säätio for supporting this work! Physically in Muu Helsinki Contemporary Art Centre and virtually on Station of Commons, for those in different regions of the metaverse.

Tonight at 7, at Ackerstadtpalast in Berlin, Adrian Pereyra and Roland Neffe from ensemble mosaik together with me will play Autophagy II - Mikrophobie for UpToThree festival. Feels great to be finally able to perform again live, and in such a wonderful company it's just a privilege. Thanks to all who made this possible!
