Electroacoustic Musician and a Videoartist
Francesco Giannico is an italian electroacoustic musician (ambient drone folk music) and a videoartist. He lives in Rome and he originates from Taranto in the southern part of Italy. He's graduated in "Musicology and Musical Heritage" at the University of Lecce with a thesis on "History of film music". Musically he was born as an indie-guitarist, but an unexpected convergence with experimental electronic music some ten years ago changed his musical orientation, driving him into a different direction.He published his works for many labels such as Afe Records, Hysm,Akoustic Desease,Muertepop and Porter Records. His musical approach is better described as a cinematic journey which pushes the boundaries of digital media even further by incorporating smooth melodies and gentle textures. More canonical instruments such as guitar and piano are constantly present into Francesco Giannico's music, within interrupted structures or long and dreaming sonorous carpets.
