ALESSANDRO BOSETTI (born in 1973) is a composer, and sound artist.
He focuses mainly on the musicality of the spoken language and unusual, sound-related aspects of verbal communication.Bosetti created numerous hybrid text-sound pieces to be performed live and award-wining radio compositions recorded and released on the labels specializing in experimental electronic music.
In his pieces, he explores the fringe area between sound anthropology and composition, often including translation and misunderstanding, as important elements of the creative process. Field research and interviews provide the starting point for his abstract compositions in addition to the use of electroacoustic and acoustic collages, relational strategies, application of a diverse range of instrumental practice, expanded voice techniques and digital manipulation.
In the period from 2007 to 2009, he designed Mask/Mirror a sampler processing recordings of the spoken language in real time that he uses to explore the expressive and performative potential of the speech-loop format, combined with acoustic instruments and improvisation. more under: melgun.net
