Album Notes
I was born in Sicily, Italy. At the age of 15 I started studying classical piano, but my passion for research led me to the improvisation style. I played with different musicians and I explored various musical genres, and within a few years I was able to apply the free improvisation technique on many instruments: bass, soprano sax, classical flute and ethnic percussion instruments.

Thanks to musicians and teachers from various continents, I learned to both play and construct native instruments of the world, like the didgeridoo from Australia, the djembe from Africa, bamboo flutes from India and other instruments created by me.

I attended the Classical Music Conservatory in Italy, where I studied classical orchestral percussion. Thanks to my teacher Gianluca Ruggeri I intensified my skill in minimalist music. These years were very important because they allowed me to develop my personal style.

At 21 I created and directed a theatrical multimedia performance called ‘Apologia della Gioia’, involving a live ensemble of thirty artists as musicians, actors, dancers, poets and performers. This is the vision I hold in all my works: different expressions of art all in an unique event. Now these productions are called Samavesha.

While I was living in Rome, I authored and performed various pieces of music for theater, dance performances, exhibitions and soundtracks for movies with acclaimed musicians from all over the world. ‘Mood’ is an album with different songs from these works.

For almost two years I also collaborated musically and as assistant composer for Paolo Buonvino, one of the most famous italian movie soundtrack composers.

Currently, I am based out of Berkeley, California, where I create soundtracks, performances and concerts with artists of all genres. I am the fonder and the artistic director of Samavesha, a production that seeks to unite different expressions of Art in beautiful, inspiring and unique events.

In the past few years, I have discovered the Hang, a new instrument made in Switzerland. ‘Hang: a collection of works’ is an album dedicated entirely to this instrument. My research is focused primarily on the Hang although I perform with a variety of instruments and I teach percussion and rhythmic improvisation, didgeridoo and circular breathing, Hang and other workshops. A new cd is available dedicate to the Hang: 'Musical Incense'.
