Classical and electric guitarist, experimental musician, composer and sound artist who ranges from classical to contemporary music, from radical improvisation to avant-rock to her own musical creation that is a crossover between her academic background and the underground electronic scene. In her work, a refined timbre research on augmented guitar, keyboards, electronics, signal processors and sound objects (often built by the instrument maker Andrea Tremolada), build soft atmospheres which tend to explosion with a continuous game between absence and presence. In 2020 she released her first solo album “The Wharmerall” (Pitch the Noise Records) where she composed and played electric guitar, signal processors, electronics and keyboards. The album was welcomed in a very enthusiastic way from both fans and critics. The project was performed in Milan at Mudec Museum, at Tertulliano Theatre (Smart Guitar Fest by Città Sonora) and at Salotto in Prova; in Brescia (Spettro); in Bergamo (Inascolto); in Piacenza (Incò_ntemporanea); in Berlin. Very soon she specializes in the field of contemporary music as a soloist (ranking among the first places in several Italian international contemporary music competitions as “Mencherini” and “Luigi Nono”). She has been collaborating with various ensembles (Divertimento, Repertorio 0, Eutopia, Sinestesia, Fiarì, New Made). She regularly plays in contemporary music Festival for example: Rebus, Festival 5 Giornate, Rondò (Milan), Festival Archipel (Geneva, CH), Festival Soundscape (Maccagno, IT), Le strade del suono (Genoa); Alterazioni (Lainate, IT). She has curated dozens of first performances and has collaborated as a musician with the composition class of Giovanni Verrando at the Fondazione Claudio Abbado (Milan).
