I am a University Lecturer at Keele University, where I contributes to the Music Technology and Music programmes. I was born and raised in northern Italy, not far from Venice, and obtained my BSc in Electronic Engineering from Universita' di Padova. I moved to the UK to pursue studies in Sonic Arts, and settled down in the British Midlands in the late 1990s. I am primarily a creative person working with computers, audio and video. I also write commentaries on aspects of my own artistic practice, as well as on general topics related to contemporary sound art. I am an amateur fingerstyle acoustic guitar player, I love going to the cinema at impossible hours and I look at the world of mass media with a healthy degree of skepticism.

Perhaps.
