SONOLOGYST is the Raffaele Pezzella solo project from Italy. It's based on the perpetual experiment in sound, looking back to early experimentation of the Fifties and Sixties, forwarding to the future possibilities of electronic and electro-acoustic instruments, with a special attention to the relationships between music and science, music and other art forms, including literature and modern mythologies. All SONOLOGYST’s pieces are almost completely improvised. That’s why he calls his music “experimental”, meaning that the result is unpredictable. His music oscillates between the scientific sonic documentary and a modern concrete sound design.
Since 2014 SONOLOGYST is the curator of Unexplained Sounds, a "Global Network of Aural Disorientation" focused to investigate the current experimental worldwide music scene, whose main label, Unexplained Sounds Group, was founded in 2015. Along side the label activity he runs a streaming radio program (The Recognition Test), every Sunday 9.00 p.m. UTC + 1.
In 2017 he founded the label Eighth Tower Records and in 2020 founded the label ZeroK.
SONOLOGYST's recordings are available through: Cold Spring Records, Unexplained Sounds Group, Eighth Tower Records, Gravity's Rainbow Tapes, Attenuation Circuit.
