Born in Palermo in 1989, he got into dance and rave culture, and particularly electronic music when he was 14, with great excitement and satisfaction about expressing himself through music. He keeps cultivating this passion and in 2009 he moves to Milan for studing “Audio Engineering” at Sae Institute, and he begins to dedicate himself to production of techno music.
In 2010, several travels to Berlin and the confidence of his friend Ascion, the first one to believe in his work, has been new motivating forces to keep on his first productions. He starts to crank out his first releases, pretty much “canonical” techno, soon getting to the development of a very personal sound, orientated to experimental sound design with an industrial background.
His works meet immediatly a great success among the insiders. In june 2011, after finishing his studies, he moves to Berlin and starts working on “REPITCH”, a new label founded together with Ascion and D.Carbone.
REPITCH is definitely a label of dark tonalities. Shapednoise will take care of the experimentation of sounds turned towards a not so distant future, out of every musical logic, perfectly denoting the concept already defined by the other two Repitch, but undoubtely in a more extreme way. In 2012, he started to work together the mysterious Violet Poison for the Violet Poison imprint, an experimental/hybrid techno label inspired by the greatest Italian horror movies directors from the 1960-1970′s decades and from obscure producers of vintage electronica and harsh noise/industrial music. He’s also the half part of the collaborative project Violetshaped. Together they published works by important artists like Roly Porter, Vatican Shadow and Kangding Ray.
In the 2013 Violet Poison has released the Violetshaped debut album. Shapednoise had also his solo debut album on limited-edition cassette for the Dominick Fernow’s (Prurient/Vatican Shadow) Hospital Productions. During his dj sets he tries to get the listener into a “trip” through the darkest electronic music: a mix of industrial, noise, experimental, techno, idm.
Currently he is working on the first ever Shapednoise’s live set, containing all new tracks from the Hospital Productions album and Unreleased material.shapednoise soundcloud
