BIOGRAPHY

Musician is an ever-changing instrument, the ways to ride are many and as the musical possibilities that wait to be fixed on a pentagram or on an hard disk.

That's the concept of Valerio Rodelli's artistic job. Musician and composer, he began in the childhood the piano classical study and when he was 12 years old he discovered the accordion in the tradional world. With his artistic path, in combination with the discovery in music and theater, Valerio achieved a melting point with his instrument and his instruments potentiality: he worked for many years with theater companies as well as with musical groups, experimenting the accordion as a charming instrument capable to create unique and misterious atmosphere.

The study of the electronic sounds through the use of samplers, synthesizer and computer, extended Valerio's musical and creative possibility, allowing him to create a deep fusion of ancient and modern. The the accordion's warm and intense resonances began to merge with the cold and precise electronic sounds, giving birth to his actual musical experimentation field.
