Valerio Tricoli

Valerio Tricoli wurde 1977 in Palermo geboren und lebt in Berlin. Er  tritt überwiegend mit analogen elektronischen Instrumenten auf (reel-to-reel tape recorders, Synthesizern, Mikrofonen, Lichteffekten...). Seine Arbeit erforscht die komplexen Zusammenhänge zwischen Musiker, Klang, und Objekt; Psychische Prozesse, die in Klanglandschaften übersetzt werden und umgekehrt.
Er ist einer der Gründer von the Bowindo label/collective, und der avant-rock combo 3/4HadBeenEliminated.


Valerio Tricoli (*1977 in Palermo, based in Berlin) works with the electro-acoustic group 3/4HadBeenEliminated, as a concrete music composer, improviser, sound installation artist, producer and sound engineer, and curator.
His compositions bridge musique concrète and conceptual forms of sound (i.e. the radical interest in how reality, virtuality, memory relate to each other during the acoustic event): music, as a recorded or as a synthetically-modeled sound, is always hovering between the "here and now" of the event and the shady domain of memory – distant but at the same time present, like a déjà–vu experience.
Tricoli plays live music with electronic instruments – most of them analogue – (reel-to-reel tape recorders, synthesizers, microphones, light effects, ultrasonic speakers), however the structure of the device is ever-changing, seeking multiple relations between the performers, the device and the space in which the event takes place.
He is one of the founders of the Bowindo label/collective ("arguably the best thing to come out of Italy since Luigi Nono", Dan Warburton, The Wire), and of the band 3/4HadBeenEliminated, a daring synthesis between improvisation, electro-acoustic composition and avant-rock sensitivity.
"Metaprogramming From Within The Eye Of The Storm", "an intense investigation of disembodied perception in the form of a single electro-acoustic composition" (Daniel Sorenson), is his latest composition, released in 2006 and welcomed with great critical interest.
