Alessandro Bosetti

Alessandro Bosetti (Milano, Italy) is a composer, performer and sound artist whose works delve into the musicality of spoken language, utilizing misunderstandings, translations and interviews as compositional tools. His works for voice and electronics blur the line between electro-acoustic composition, aural writing and performance. One of the most innovative radio artists of his generation, he has created a vast body of work of hybrid, award winning, text-sound and radio compositions for the main radio and electro-acoustic studios in Europe such as WDR, Deutschland Radio Kultur, Radio France, ABC Australia, ORF, GRM/Presences Electroniques. 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 Vokalsolisten Stuttgart, Trophies—a powerful speech-loop trio with drummer Tony Buck and fretless guitarist Kenta Naga, and Mask Mirror—an instrument and software that reorganizes speech for musical purposes enacting a form of electronic ventriloquism.
