Giuseppe Ielasi

Giuseppe started playing guitar in 1988, and worked for many years in the area of improvised music. He had long-term collaborations with Renato Rinaldi in the duo Oreledigneur, Thomas Ankersmit, Michel Doneda, Ingar Zach, Dean Roberts. More recently, his main interest has shifted to site-specific solo performances. He still uses guitars as his primary sound source, but integrates microphones and multi-channel speaker systems into the mix in order to create complex networks for sound diffusion in relationship to space. He has recent, critically acclaimed releases on the 12k imprint and his own Schoolmaps label.
