«Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life», as Pablo Picasso said. It is essential in today's fast-paced and frenetic world, allowing us to pause, reflect, and share thoughts and ideas. Composers (as artists) must not give up on finding their place in society because the pursuit of beauty is paramount to human beings. That is why I devote my time to both composition and pedagogy.

Music is an act of meditation. My inquiry has shifted from distinguishing myself as a musician to understanding what music requires of me. I believe that composing involves knowledge of oneself and one's experiences, as well as a connective tissue between different individuals and thoughts. It is within this connective tissue that my musical practice lies: social interactions play a crucial role in avoiding the harmful illusion that our own thinking is the unique truth. I actively interact with listeners and collaborate with other musicians, drawing on their knowledge and experience to create dynamic and collaborative thinking. Composing without this attitude could be a narcissistic and solipsistic exercise.

Writing music involves acting in the “sense of tradition” for me. Drawing on my experience playing the piano, I discovered my passion for composition. Exposure to different piano styles inspired my creativity and compulsion to write. Discovering the techniques of earlier composers has led me to explore music further than simply performing it. This desire would motivate me towards what I refer to as a "sense of tradition": the necessity to acknowledge the endurance over time of the fundamental structures of composition. Today's composers have a significant theoretical legacy that requires careful study. The vitality of these theories is not yet extinct, for they offer significant insights when explored through the lens of our expressive world. As with composers of any era, it is possible for me to draw inspiration from the past. We are currently inhabiting an "era of synthesis", whereby composers can fuse various musical writing styles from different periods by cultivating a personal aesthetic sensibility. Technique in itself does not determine an artwork's quality; it allows artists complete creative control, shaping their imagination and resulting in depth and originality. This perspective arises from my birthplace, Sicily, a region with a rich and historic cultural heritage, where I learned that vastly different cultures can coexist for generations and have a positive and ever-changing impact on each other.
The musical figure is essential for discovering the underlying threads of my scores. It structures the form into narrative arcs and provides sonic descriptors for individual events. Figures enliven the musical warp and offer a potential solution to the tense bond between music and listener, providing a hopeful perspective on music's ability to direct and connect in plot.

Born in 1995, I obtained a Master's degree in Piano from the Conservatorio "Giuseppe Verdi" in Milan and in Composition and Music Theory from the Conservatorio della Svizzera Italiana in Lugano. My innate passion for music and commitment to ongoing education have led me to pursue additional disciplines, including those that enable me to delve into novel areas of research, like conveying the intricacies of sound and examining principles of perception. My interest in psychoacoustics, electroacoustic music, and the relationship between timbre and musical instruments has spurred me to compose with sound instead of with pitches, highlighting the hidden beauty and complexity of the sonic environment around us. Throughout my career, I have composed music for various institutions, including the OSI Orchestra della Svizzera Italiana, the Divertimento Ensemble in Milan, the NODUS 2022 Artistic Residency in Spain. From 2023 on, my scores will be published and distributed through BabelSores. These milestones have been a valuable opportunity for my personal growth, enhancing my compositional skills, sense of responsibility and work ethic.
