Giuseppe Ielasi

Giuseppe Ielasi was born in 1974, and has lived near milan since 1990. He started playing guitar in 1988, and has worked for many years within the field of ‘improvised music’. Between 1997 and 2006 he has performed live with Thomas Ankersmit, Jerome Noetinger, Michel Doneda, Dean Roberts, Mark Wastell, Martin Siewert, Phill Niblock, Oren Ambarchi, and many others. From 2007 on, his main interest has been in site-specific solo performances, sometimes using guitars as primary sound sources but also integrating microphones and multi- channel speaker systems in order to create complex networks for sound diffusion in relationship to space. In 1998 he started the “Fringes Recordings” label, closed in 2005, and co-founded “Schoolmap Records” in 2006. He now runs Senufo together with Jennifer Veillerobe. - Fluid Radio
