Concert (Curated by Alfonso Belfiore)


“Fatigue” it’s an acousmatic composition about Brain Fog. It’s a flux of audio information that desperately tries to condensate itself into a coherent meaning but simply can not. Sounds are treated as Brain Fog thoughts so are heavily fragmented in nature and iterative. It’s a piece based on abrupt interruptions, unexpected change in sound material, chaotic motion in space, and condensation/coalescence of thematic ideas. The listener can be overwhelmed by this audio flux or he can practice a sort of meditation to experience the passing of this stream as an external observer.

Luca Mucci


Born in 1994, He started playing guitar at age of 11. After many years of traditional and modern music studies, he approached the broad boundaries of electronic music and it’s wide expression range. Thrilled by this subject, he started producing in 2015 and graduated in electroacoustic music at Cherubini Conservatory, Florence. His works were presented at “Diffrazioni” Music Festival in Florence, and At the “Biennale of Architecture” in Venice were he scored a video work by CRN-INO about the LI-FI Technology. He also works as a producer at Studio SottoSuono and as composer for Audible Italia.


The name of this composition derives from the period in which it was composed, that is the days between 2021 and 2022, in a state of isolation of 2 weeks due to Covid.
This long wait gave me the time and concentration to compose a soundscape that looked inside me, expressing through sounds the emotions of these last two years that have put the whole world in difficulty.
The sound material is mainly of concrete origin, with sounds of nature (storm, sea), household sounds (gas and water drops), electronically manipulated, often with granular resynthesize.

Giovanni Raschellà


Born in Florence in 1997, he began to show interest in music from an early age, he studied guitar and singing. In 2020 he obtained a degree in Electronic Music at the Luigi Cherubini Conservatory in Florence, under the guidance of Alfonso Belfiore, Roberto Neri and Marco Ligabue. He has participated in several editions of the “Diffrazioni” and “Il Corpo la Luce e il Suono” festivals. In 2019 he was selected for the "Florence to New York project" initiative, collaborating with Esther Lamneck at New York University. In his compositions he prefers the use of concrete sounds recorded by him, processed electronically.

Silence of the Universe

In March 2021, NASA conducted a study about the sounds of the universe. I started from the idea that we are surrounded by sounds and noises that delineate the space around us. We are unable to perceive even though they are always with us. I have collected a group of sounds to create an “acoustic space”. To describe our presence. I decided to record my heartbeat. On a visual level I designed two/three-dimensional spaces in continuous change that could give a place to the sounds that follow one another in the project. I want to represent an “unknown” space described by sounds that we do not perceive but in which we find our self.

Anna Boso


I was born in Florence, Italy on September 7, 2000. I started studying piano at the age of 10 and then graduated at the High School Musical of Florence in 2018 with Piano. In 2009 I started studying acting and theater. In 2015 I started studying modern singing, again in that year I approached jazz music and I arrived to follow in 2018 the "singing and jazz music" course at the Fiesole Music School. Over the years I have participated in various singing competitions, winning most of them. From 2014 to 2018 I study composition, harmony and analysis of classical music. Since 2019 I have been following the "Electronic Music" course.

Theseus (The Mighty Mouse)

Theseus is a robotic mouse programmed for the resolution of mazes, one of the first example of machine learning. Built in 1950 by mathematician and researcher Claude Shannon, it marks the beginning of a new era.
This work is inspired by the path of various ecological Theseus in a metropolis of the future, through traffic, architectural barriers, and other obstacles.
Theseus are therefore constantly in danger, risking being crushed by a car or being targeted by particularly lively kids, but thanks to their “digital” ability they are always able to face the adversity and to find an alternative way.

Giacomo Aiolli


Giacomo Aiolli, born in 1993 in Florence, is an Italian composer, sound artist and performer. His work is focused on the interaction between human control and everything that appears casual and spontaneous to us, investigating the fine line that separates these two fundamental aspects of our life. With his music Aiolli wants to push himself towards unexplored sound environments and decode them through his music culture and sensibility, finding space to blend electronic and acoustic sounds in a single composition.

Tempo Bastante

A vision from the anguish of Giacomo Guerrini
The work is the result of distressing thoughts that have characterized this traumatic period of humanity.
The path of work is an uncontrolled race towards madness driven by chaos and the unnatural frenzy to which life subjects us by taking away the illusion of control over it.

Giacomo Guerrini


Born in Livorno, Tuscany, in 1980. Graduated in piano at 23 years old at "L. Cherubini" Conservatory in Florence. The strong belief that music needs to develop and renew itself constantly through time made him pursue experimentation and an avant-garde aesthetic. His work presents innumerable contaminations of musical styles, uniquely important in his productions. Repetitions is a major component of his music. Ex MNT student at Conservatory, "L. Cherubini" in Florence. He composes and performs with piano, bass, guitar, saxophone, keyboards, toy instruments, synthesizers, modular gear, microphones and computer.

Il ciclo dell’azoto – The nitrogen cycle

The nitrogen cycle is a process by which nitrogen moves mainly between the atmosphere, the ground and living things. This cycle is defined as gaseous because the reserve pool, that is the reservoir of this chemical element, is precisely the atmosphere. this biogeochemical process involves many living beings and is indispensable for human life. The composition wants to represent the cycle through the morphing of concrete sounds with synthetic ones. bacteria, atmospheric events, microorganisms, animals and plants are part of the compositional path that ends in a structural cycle of sounds.

Jacopo Paolini


Jacopo Paolini was born on the island of Elba in 1991. As a child he played the piano and the guitar but in adolescence he became passionate about electronic music. Bachelor's degree and student of music and new technologies at the Luigi Cherubini conservatory in Florence. He has participated in numerous electroacoustic music festivals with songs on the behavior of nature. Thanks to nature and his aesthetics, Jacopo finds timbral and structural inspirations to write music.


The four natural elements find their common denominator in noise, in our experience this aspect fades into the background in favor of their meaning. According to the philosopher Empedocles, all things are governed by the tension between love and strife that dominate at alternating times, shaking the elements of which they are composed. The cycle of cosmic forces where destruction and generating force are confused, is made by the sounds of natural elements that bind and break up in the continuous flow of low-frequency noise that composes them. The object of research is chaos understood as the noise that accompanies the four elements.

Marco Alberghini


He graduated in Communication Sciences at the University of Siena, a first level degree in Electronic Music at the Conservatory "G.B. Martini" of Bologna and a master degree in Music and New Technologies at the Conservatory “L. Cherubini” of Firenze.

| Shapeless dimension | Disorder measure | Consciousness process | Larval state | Transformation | Knowledge | Beauty | Contemplation | Manipulation of Nature |
NEW P. is a capture collection formulated by five light boxes, conceived by the artist and video maker Arianna Bitossi in collaboration with Sam Barreto Cardoso Bertoldi.
The sound project was made with wavetable noise, interacting with the video sequence in terms of synchronization and trying to create an ancestral and extended atmosphere to a “timeless”.

Samantha Barreto Cardoso Bertoldi


Samantha Barreto Cardoso Bertoldi (alias Sam), Pistoia- Italy. She is a sound artist musician who has been sharing her work since 2007. Her produce experimental / ambient and glitch music for contemporary art installations and dance performances. Her inspiration is nature and she creates her artistic and conceptual projects, both contemporary and abstract, inviting them to immerse themselves in a world of surreal dreams, experimenting with technological errors, textures of ambient sound and interpolation of interrupted rhythms. Her research in the sound perception of the cognitive-emotional and eco-systemic system of conditioning.

Il Canto Del Pane

“Il Canto del Pane” is an acousmatic composition that aims to evoke an inner world that arises from the common experience of baking, an ancient rite that unites peoples. Kneading, molding, baking, cooking control and finally cutting; all the sound material is recorded live and in a single session. The title comes from what bakers say, when bread is cooling before taste it; they say it sings, in fact bread makes nice creaks and crackles due to the sudden exchange of heat and evaporation. Effects and treatments are derived through analysis and resynthesize processes; the composition is made entirely with Csound.

Yeshi Silvano Namkhai


Y. Silvano Namkhai is a composer born in Italy with training in photography, cinematography and computer science. Today he is studying electronic music at the Luigi Cherubini Conservatory of Music in Florence and composes music on the computer. He loves all musical forms, especially live ones and those that make you think. In each composition he puts himself and all that he has learned about the world.


The composition “Parole” is developed exclusively through the use of the voice. For its realization, a voice was sampled which pronounced exclusively the word: “Parole” that means “Words”Through the use of different types of synthesis and among the most used the granular synthesis, a destructuring of the voice takes place which makes it almost incomprehensible. The voice is not only used to create a sound texture; it is also used in the rhythmic parts; with a rapid decay I leaved the pronunciation of the letter “P” in evidence. The track thus created is a synthesis and mixture of electronic music and vocal processing

Angelo Marrone


I am Angelo Marrone an Italian composer, arranger, musician and virtual orchestrator. I have got the master's degree in 2020 in Music and New Technologies at Florence Conservatory and the Bachelor’s Degree In 2011 in “Contemporary Pop Music Composition and Arranging” at Pescara Conservatory.

Solo Voce

Solo Voce: inspired by the human voice, one of the oldest intrument and one of the most powerful analog synthesizer in hystory. Composition was made to explore the possibility of human voice. Two main layers: the first one generated by the voice and modify by the use of effects and electronics, the second one done by the ability of the singer.

Les Dahlias noirs

This acousmatic piece is about feminicides and violence against women. It evokes the sad but famous case of the murder of Elizabeth Short, the Black Dahlia, in Los Angeles in 1947. The identity of the murderer has never been determined but many hypotheses have been made. As the case grew more and more notorious, many men claimed responsibility.
In a society where violence against women has long been trivialized and unsanctioned even today, this work aims to illustrate violence as a gear synonymous of death, tension, false appearances. Drops of white noise run through the composition and represent each feminicides occurred in 2019.

Elise Duchemin


Elise Duchemin is a 31 years old French musician and composer currently based in Florence, Italy. She started as a bass player in Paris where she played bass for several electro-pop bands and composed music for dance and theater. She studied bass and electroacoustic musique at the 7th arrondissement conservatory in Paris. That’s when she started to compose in this particular field. She moved to Florence in 2019 and has been studying « music and new technologies » at the Cherubini conservatory since then.

Never give up. The tree you are looking at is the same but is observed from different points of view.
Rebirth is the chance to give ourselves a new chance. Sometimes the obstacle to our projects is ourselves. We just need to broaden our horizons and discover how green our lives are.

Angelo Marrone


I am Angelo Marrone an Italian composer, arranger, musician and virtual orchestrator. I have got the master's degree in 2020 in Music and New Technologies at Florence Conservatory and the Bachelor’s Degree In 2011 in “Contemporary Pop Music Composition and Arranging” at Pescara Conservatory.

Noise Change

Noise Change is an electro-acoustic piece of music that wants to represent the continuous evolution of sound and its state. The inspiration behind this piece came from the observation that our society is constantly subjected to strong noise pollution, which has damaging effects on the human body, with extreme consequences of nervous and anxiety diseases.
I wanted to keep a sound flow that reminded me of the constant urban noise so that the listener could immerse himself in this sound experience.

Pier Luigi Zanni


I studied Classic Guitar at the Vecchi Tonelli Institute in Modena and Music and New Technologies at the Luigi Cherubini Conservatory in Florence.
In the audio-visual world I started experimenting with sound recording and processing, and I got to work for Rai and as an Audio-Video Technician for the Vecchi Tonelli Institute, Modena.
I then specialized in Sound Composition and Sound Design working on various advertisements for clothing brands, short films and documentaries.


With this work. I wanted to send a message and so I decided to work on my project using the subject of “Terrorism” which I’ve always been interested in. The word terrorism usually scares us and reminds us of cruelty actions we have seen too often in TV during the past years, but in this case I wanted to make people actually feel like experiencing those moments. My piece tries to analyze, through electroacoustic music, most of the events connected to terrorist attacks that took place around Europe in the past 10 years or so. In the work are present recorded sounds by me and synthesized sounds from coding and sampling software.

Viola Luciotto


born in Florence, Italy, is about to graduate in Electronic Music in Florence. In 2018, she graduated from a musical high school. She spent her 4th year of high school in the US. It was also around this time that she decided to start a bachelor’s degree in Electronic Music because she enjoys composing works based on current events, pieces which often try to convey a specific message to the listener. Viola also studied in The Netherlands for a semester as an Erasmus student at the Royal Conservatory of The Hague at the Institute of Sonology. Her plans for the future are to work in the movie’s industry as a sound designer.

Trilogy of the elements

The trilogy of the elements is an audiovisual composition in three movements.
The last of a two-year study on concrete sound and its use for narrative, this composition looks at the production of concrete sound without human interference, leaving the elements to take charge and letting them slowly overcome every presence until there is nothing left in the scene.
Both musically and visually there is a game of rising and falling, the bottle flies, then falls, the water drops low but the splash evaporates high, always crossing a stable horizontal line of a surreal landscape.

Alessia Anastassopulos


Alessia Anastassopulos is an Italo-Greek musician. Starting in childhood with classical training through the study of the violin, in the last seven years her interest has been directed towards sound and image and from 2016 to the present year, her audiovisual compositions have been selected for projection in Italy and abroad. Currently a third-year PhD music student at the University of Huddersfield, her research studies concrete mundane sounds for the creation of narrative through audiovisual composition.

Scorci di vita quotidiana in un ambiente di pineta

“Scorci di vita quotidiana in un ambiente di pineta” (Glimpses of everyday life in a pine forest environment) is an acousmatic work for ensemble and electronics. Musically the piece is a soundscape inspired by the typical natural sounds of a pine forest. The work is not presented as a mere representation of the natural environment, but rather, through the identification of precise sound timbres that refer to the pine forest environment, the composition recreates a realistic / imaginary soundscape.
