Giovanni Lami


Giovanni Lami (Ravenna, Italy, 1978) is a sound artist and musician who works within soundscape and sound- ecology boundaries. With degrees in Food Science and Technologies and in Photography, he has exhibited his work across Europe, held a couple of artistic residences (Basque Country and Norway) and worked with several organisations (from Unesco in Lalibela /Ethiopia to Dead Meat, an alternative clothing brand). His experience as a photographer perfectly supplements his current work in sound composition. The universe of sound is as broad as the visual possibilities available when using images. Working on field recordings and real time signals processing (analog or digital), the manipulation of the sounds available around us is his modus operandi.

In 2016, he founded MU with Enrico Malatesta and Glauco Salvo, an independent association devoted to sound-experiences, acting as a platform to develop and bring fresh gigs, listening sessions and workshops.
