I am an Italian composer of musique concrète, field recordist and improviser. My music can be seen as an attempt to create a purely sonic poetry and is very much based on the consideration of space as the main dimension of perception and thence of evocative processes involved in listening experience. I graduated in Music and New Technology at the Conservatoire of my hometown, Palermo, where I studied composition with Emanuele Casale. I then moved to Birmingham, UK, where I completed a PhD in Electroacoustic Composition under supervision of Jonty Harrison. At the moment I am back to Palermo, where I work as an A/V technician at the Teatro Massimo Vittorio Emanuele as well as a freelance composer and sound designer, especially focusing on theatre and artistic performances.
I love to present my music on acousmonium, sort of very complex surround systems that become a great instrument for adapting a piece of music to specific spaces. Field recording and soundscape represent the intersection point in which my passion for sound meets my love for nature and hiking. I often use field recordings in my compositions, but I also record outdoor just with the same spirit of a portraitist. The several article of the field recording section of this website are dedicated to this kind of practice, each concerning a different place that in a way or another is meaningful to me.
