Alessandro Bosetti

Alessandro Bosetti is a composer, performer and sound artist whose works delve into the musicality of spoken language, utilising misunderstandings, translations and interviews as compositional tools. His works for voice and electronics blur the line between electroacoustic composition, aural writing and performance. He has created a vast body of work of hybrid, award winning, text-sound and radio pieces for WDR’s Studio Akustische Kunst, Deutschlandradio Kultur, Hessischer Rundfunk, Radio France and ABC National Radio. Current projects include the abstract polyphony dispositive Plane/Talea, The Notebooks based on Leos Janacek speech melodies archives, the monophonic extravaganzas Mini- and Maxigolf with Neue Vocalsolisten, Trophies a powerful speech-loop trio with drummer Tony Buck and fretless guitarist Kenta Nagai, and Mask Mirror an instrument and software that reorganises speech for musical purposes enacting a form of electronic ventriloquism.
