Andrea Marinelli & Demetrio Cecchitelli  

Andrea Marinelli (b. 1985) is visual artist and musician. He plays live electronics starting from songwriting to jazz, to contemporary, back to traditional and forth. He develops an ethno-musical research around vocal patterns and expressions into traditional cultures collecting a huge library of vocal samples from all around the world. He uses it to create musical compositions where the digital materials meet the most analogue sound: vocals. He produce artworks like sculptures or printed images based on original photos made at TV screen. A part of this audiovisual materials converge into SECRETSHOW audiovisual performance where analogue vintage overhead projectors meets digital laguages of light and music.

He has stable musical collaboration with Tiziano Tononi for a electronics and physical drums duo, Tiziana Ghiglioni, Phil Maguire (UK), Allberto de Angeli, Demetrio Cecchitelli and others.

"Inside T Sound" is a sound improvisation. The capacity of integration between the composers during the creation process of the work, is given by the complicity inside the sound(s) used in the session. Advanced electroacoustic and live electronics' techniques melt together to form a single compositional element. The work wants to represent a totality of gestures and textures, that combine, evolve a complex sound dramaturgy.

Mix & Master by Andrea Marinelli.
