Biography

Singer, musician and composer.
His first sound experiences, when he’s five years old, are made with a red and black Phonola tape recorder: he records sounds of environment, unusual bawls, rattles and improvisations. The tapes have gone lost.
He’s ten years old when he starts studying guitar and music theory. His first musical experiences are in rock and folk music and jazz bands.

Later he goes to Rome to improve his knowledge (UM, Testaccio, La Sapienza, etc). There he also discovers his interest in vocal experimentation and contemporary music.
From many years he works with soundtracks, composition, improvisation and art; he plays voice and computer, strings, Jew’s harps, frame drums.
At the moment he lives near Naples and leads workshops for children and adults: creative music, self-made instruments, invention of new languages to learn theory, technique and music notation.
Since 2001 he’s involved in import/export and distribution of professional and popular instruments from allover the world (with the NARADA company).
He has performed in Italy and Europe.
