ten strings for sound - time - space
I graduated in Jazz from the Conservatories of Castelfranco Veneto and Vicenza with Sandro Gibellini, Pietro Tonolo, Gianluca Carollo, Enrico Merlin and Paolo Birro. Continuous training in Music (Electronics) with Valerio Murat. I studied for 10 years classical guitar with Maestro Angelo Amato in Venice, nurturing and pursuing the ideal of the guitar as an instrument sounding shy but with infinite expressive potential. Nevertheless the hot Jazz of the Twenties seduced me so much that, together with pianist Franz Falanga, I founded Adovabadàn Jazz Band, still active in Italy and abroad. Given that music is, of human languages, the most widespread and powerful communicator, I look for and find confirmation of this with the laboratory of Art and Communication Sound Illustrators, which I co-founded with musicians and creatives in Europe (Treviso, Helsinki, Berlin), resulting in the spreading of our concept over the old continent.
I collaborated with Fabrica (the Benetton's communication research center) till 2015 when I met with the musician Alaa Arsheed and together we started AlphaArt.org
Fascinated by the power of music, the craft of sound, and the ability enthralling the vibration of an instrument to draw away, I love to travel inside and outside myself, within and out of the borders.
Further experiences include music composed for short and feature movies: in 2013 I've been invited as resident composer in Moscow to compose and arrange music that was played and recorded at MOS Film Studios by the National Russian Symphony Cinema Orchestra conducted by Sergey Skripka.
Then in 2014 I composed and performed music for Cinema and Theater as L'Albero Storto (by Beppe Casales and the Choir Valcavasia, Treviso), In Trincea (by Michele di Giacomo, Milano), Sogni Bisogni e Altre Virtú (performed with Sound Illustrators and written by Gino Tonello, Padova), D'Amore e Decrescita (by Francesco Niccolini), In Guerra (a feature movie by Davide Sibaldi, Milano), Mamihlapinatapai (movie by Victor Marvin, Moscow), La Superfiaba (by Beppe Casales, Genova 2015), Welcome (by Beppe Casales, 2016), Il primo meraviglioso spettacolo (by Davide Sibaldi, a docufilm supported by Amnesty International and Unicef, 2017),
I produced and realized,together with Alaa Arsheed, the Balkan Tour SEEDS_I play with Mozart (2017) which took us along the migrants balkan route: we brought music and art inside refugee's camps during a 21 days journey from Italy down to Greece.
