As a freelance flutist, composer and electroacoustic performer, Alessandro is active internationally in the field of contemporary music and sound art.
Engagements have taken him to all around the globe, performing in the most important venues and festivals such as Salzburger Festspiele, Lucerne Festival, Warsaw Autumn, Prague Spring, Wiener Festwochen, Wien Modern, Transart, IRCAM Centre Pompidou, Vienna Musikverein and Vienna Konzerthaus.
His dedication to contemporary music led him to work with both established composers such as Beat Furrer, Tristan Murail, Salvatore Sciarrino and Brian Ferneyhough, but also with the most important representatives of the youngest generation of composers today, combining an intensive activity in the field of sound installations, performative art and electroacoustic composition, as well as working actively with young composer and artists on new languages of expression in music.
His inventive approach brought him to develop various prototypes of electro-acoustical instruments, digital control and mapping systems as well as sound and ergonomic solutions for acoustic instruments. Alessandro also combines extensive knowledge in live-electronics practices and has been a lecturer in various universities throughout Europe and around the world.
Born in Milan, Italy, Alessandro started his musical education at a very early age. He pursued his studies in composition, flute, sound engineering as well as multimedia art in Vienna (Universität für Musik und darstellende Kunst und Universität für Angewandte Kunst Wien).
