Electro-acoustic guitar  – ambient/experimental

In a long career which began in 1985 as a teenager member of a rock band, Sergio has experimented with almost everything. During the ’90s Sergio focuses his work on steel-string guitar, performing live in Italy and Europe; in 1998 works on the Ark Ensemble project, an Italian modern quartet exploring the sound possibilities of each instrument of the group. His first solo guitar album, Blu, was produced in 2004 by the Grammy winner and founder of Windham Hill Records William Ackerman; his solo project, Aria Meccanica (CandyRat Records, 2009) is a conceptual work—a fascinating trip into all the possible sonorities created on the guitar: loops, vocals, percussion, objects, and live electronics are wisely melded into a poetic vision. Graduated at D.A.M.S. of Bologna (Italy) with a thesis of music semiology on music for acoustic guitar, Sergio has worked as composer and arranger for theatre shows, movies and documentaries, and as a teacher leading masterclass about techniques for the contemporary acoustic guitar. He is also a member of Telescope Motel with Alberto Fiori and Serena Fortebraccio also a member of Guitar Republic. Sergio was born in Molfetta (Bari, Italy); he lives in Bologna (Italy) .
