I am a composer and guitarist born in Palermo (Sicily).
My music focuses on what I call micro-differences, namely contingent oscillations, imperfections, and cracks that occur within the execution of the musical material. These micro-differences interest me for their potential to act as a form of spontaneous microscopic emergent ornamentation, and to draw attention to the touch of the performer.
I am a PhD candidate at the University of Huddersfield, where I am supervised by Aaron Cassidy and Bryn Harrison
Some of my recent pieces have been performed by Francesco Dillon, Ensemble Impronta, Funktion, International Contemporary Ensemble, Christopher Redgate, Dejana Sekulic, OHHe Supercluster, Philip Thomas and Kathryn Williams among others.
Recent album releases include One Breath for solo Flute in Kathryn Williams CD Coming up for Air (Huddersfield Contemporary Records), and as guitarist, music by Ryoko Akama, recorded with Apartment House (Another Timbre) and music by Federico Pozzer (Another Timbre).
