Pianist, composer, producer
I live in Locarno, Switzerland: here, surrounded by nature, is where I create my music. Since 1995 I have been active as a pianist, composer and music producer. In the projects I work on, I like to bring together acoustic and electronic sounds in a free and creative way, crossing - back and forth - the boundaries between jazz and contemporary music.
I have performed at international clubs and festivals in Switzerland, Italy, Germany, Czech Republic, Finland, Estonia, Greece and Madagascar, and had the opportunity to work with international, national and regional artists such as Olivier Ker Ourio, Nils Petter Molvær, Tino Tracanna, Nils Wogram, Domenic Landolf, Reto Suhner, Max De Aloe, Taavo Remmel, Brian Quinn, Mauro Fiero, Max Pizio, Sandro Schneebeli and the BLUE 2147 and /q3/ collectives, among many others.
I have been teaching piano for over 20 years, am a member of the the national musicians' association SONART, of the Swiss Society for Music Pedagogy SMPV and, alongside my musical activity, I have participated in numerous initiatives to promote music and live events at local and regional level.
