about

b.1989

born and raised in naples, based in rome.

studied classical music with mº mafalda würzburger, than degree in jazz piano with greg burk at the music conservatory of frosinone.

in 2010 I approached the improvised music and became a founding member of the crossroads improring collective, based in Naples.

in 2014 was released the album “chaos magnum” by auand records, made with the band “forefront”, that is a work on improvised and contemporary music. with the same band, we held a workshop on “contemporary music in relation to jazz and improvisation” at the circolo arcipelago in cremona.

nowadays, for me making music is to try to get into the mind of the listener and drag it with me in the dark abyss of sound and improvisation.

music IS sound.

in my exhibitions, I play mainly inside piano and I use preparations, objects and extended techniques, like the “hyperpiano extended piano performance techniques” developed by the great Denman Maroney, trying to explore new textural soundscapes.

beside, I play a fender rhodes with a pedal board on it, dealing with noise and primitive and mysterious sound material.

anyway, any kind of music I play, I always love to float between noise and songs, songs and noise, noise and silence.
