Giovanni Di Domenico solo piano

Sat 15th
Giovanni Di Domenico solo piano

Rhythm, harmony and tone are informed by non-western traditions.

When he finally enrolled in music school – majoring in ‘jazz piano’- he further built on an encyclopedic technique; rhythm, harmony and tone are informed by non-western traditions yet equally sensitive to Debussy’s “Préludes”, Luciano Berio’s “Sequenzas”, to the ‘ambi-ideation’ heard in Borah Bergman’s Soul Note recordings, Cecil Taylor’s polissemic density, Paul Bley’s bruised transparency and of course, the most radical manifestations stemming from the underworld of pop music, invariably tied together by his own original praxis.

A distinction – one would call it generational – he shares with many of the musicians he has crossed paths with recently, artists as different as Chris Corsano, Jim O’Rourke, Akira Sakata, Tetuzi Akiyama, Keiji Haino, Eiko Ishibashi, Joe Talia, Okkyung Lee, Balasz Pandi, Nate Wooley, Yan Jun, John Edwards, Darin Gray, Roger Turner, Steve Noble, DJ Sniff, Terrie Ex, David Maranha, Manuel Mota, Arve Henriksen, Norberto Lobo, Peter Jacquemyn, Alexandra Grimal, John Duncan, Tony Allen, Rafael Toral or Toshimaru Nakamura.

Di Domenico has founded his own label, Silent Water, home of an eclectic and occasionally unclassifiable production. He currently lives in Brussels.
