Hi, my name is ALESSANDRO FIORIN DAMIANI, I was born in the year of Monkey, under the Virgo sign and these are my know-hows: ‘musician’ (..but I prefer ‘melonaut’), ‘music therapist’ and ‘tarotist’ (view ARCANI). In the second half of the 90s I began to experiment with the analogical language of sound and in 1999 I co-founded the DENSO art movement. From 2002 I became interested in the therapeutic aspects of music, especially from the ‘ethno-psychiatry’ point of view; after, I began to share my experiences through workshops in the field of mental health and I call it ‘psycho-melodic’ approach (aka PSICOMELODIA). From 2010 I have taken part in a scientific team (view SOUNDWAVE), discovering very interesting data on the influence of soundwaves in haematic cortisol. From 2011 I have also developed applications that could help creative people to approach the culture of analog synthesis by basic and cheap digital experience (like PURE). From 2013 I live and work in Trieste with my special wife GOGA MASON and the spirit of my loving cat NINETTO.
I co-founded the projects A.F.A. Sound System, AL-GI Duo, BOB III, INSIEME DENSO, KIMIKOVA, KRAJOBRAZ, KRISALES, LUNAR Experience Group, MOVING SOUND ENSEMBLE, TAI Trio, VAM Trio & VIDEO ANIMAZIONI VIVE. I played with BASHMANTAN, MATTEO CASTRO, DANIEL DOUGLAS, GBUR, FILIPPO GIUFFRÈ, IGI Trio, IVAN PILAT, IMPROVVIRUSOUNDEXPERIENCE meets WILLIAM PARKER, JEAN JEAN, JOOKLO, KONGROSIAN & OLGA MATHEY. I played ‘for’ SHU LEA CHANG, YONEL CASTILLA SERRANO, REBECCA D’ANDREA, DELTAPROCESS, BRICE DESAULT, STEFANO GIUST, ADRIANO JURISSEVICH, KATATONIK Sound System, LOREDANA MANFRÈ, GIORGIA MINISINI, MORPHOSIS & TEATRO SATANICO. I ‘opened’ gigs of COLOSSAMITE, THE FLYING LUTTENBACHERS, LAIBACH, TONY LIGHT, ANDREA MASSARIA, COBOL PONDIGE, Dj SPOOKY, US MAPLE & WITHEHOUSE. Apart from DENSO, I published for CLEUP, GARAGE Records, Libreria PRIMORDIA, RESSONUS Records, SETOLA DI MAIALE, SOTTOMONDO Edizioni & WORLDISORDER.
