I move my first steps as a trumpeter, getting a classical trumpet degree in 2015 in the G. Verdi Conservatory of Milan, but at the same time I began to study composition and continued as a composer, getting my Bachelor Degree in 2021, always in Milan. A brief period of studying lyric singing (3 years) gave me a clear perception of the problematic issue of writing for voice today, while the interest in the Jazz music as trumpeter gave me a knowledge of extended harmony.

My latest works are all united by research into three concepts of composing sound, structuring perception and managing actions:
1) The concept of polyphony of action, i.e., the simultaneous presence of several (three, four, five and even more) instrumental actions in a single instrument, which gives rise to a sound texture in which the sound of a single instrument reveals within it a multiplicity of related sound states. Understood in this sense, the sound emitted by a single instrument becomes not only unstable and unpredictable but becomes a collection of partial sounds that combine to form a multi-layered multi-sound. A multi-sound produced by several dynamic states within it, the result of several simultaneous gestural, manual, digital and emission activities. These activities can often conflict with each other, enhancing, annihilating, or giving rise to interference phenomena.
2) The relationship between continuity and discontinuity, under every parameter, and thus the questioning of what is meant by timbral continuity (or discontinuity), but also what is meant by gestural or harmonic continuity, or what is meant by perceptual continuity. Does discontinuity saturate time (making it heavier) better than continuity? Perhaps, but why? Are there techniques and instrumental actions that have a profound continuity inherent in them, and others that unfold better in discontinuity? Is it possible to make the listener's perception split and perceive continuity in discontinuity or vice versa? These are just a few of the innumerable questions that arise when questioning this relationship.
3) A strong irrational and improvisational component in which the syntax is inhabited by gestures with often physical and obsessive connotations. The formal structures I use are always very clear, even if within them they host hyper-layered sound and gestural activities, in which paradoxically the intention of clarity for the listener is what guides the entire compositional process, despite the complexity Clarity and complexity, involvement of the body, obsessive connotations, continuity in the macro-form but profound discontinuity in the local and micro-form, are just some of the characteristics of my music, in constant confirmation and escape from itself.
My music has been performed in Italy, Spain, Germany, France, Usa, Russia, Croatia and Thailand by IEMA Ensemble, Divertimento Ensemble, Barcelona Modern Ensemble, Tacet(i) Ensemble, Synchronos Ensemble, Vacuum Quartet, Glass Clouds Ensemble, Daniel Kientzy, Francesco Dillon, Maria Grazia Bellocchio and many others. Next projects include a new flute solo piece commissioned by DYCE 2022, a new solo bassoon piece within a research project of Conservatorio G. Verdi of Milano, a new solo percussion piece commissioned by Rondò 2023 and a new piece for Glass Clouds Ensemble.
