Paolo Angeli

Profile:
His first encounters with music were in an abandoned bus on the outskirts of northern Sardinia…. He then learned the rudiments of guitar playing from his father. Although "Aspiring to a command post in the merchant marine" at La Maddalena Nautical Istitute, he decided to abandon that career and moved to Bologna in 1989.
Within the walls of an occupied university, he began playing with the Laboratorio di Musica & Immagine and a handful of musicians who sarted experimenting with music and the experiment, which over the years has included musicians from many different backgrounds, continues to this day.
From 1990 to 1997 he performed with Laboratorio di Musica & Immagine in many 'innovative' music festivals (MIMI S.Martin de Croix, Oreille en pointes S.Etienne, Unlimited Wells, Blasnost Frontal, Babylon, Podewill Berlin, Steim Amsterdam ecc.), he released three Cds and has worked with the anglo-australian musician Jon Rose (Paolo also played in the Italian project Budget Shopping and Techno mit Stoerungen).
In later years, the some group gave birth to many new "blossoms":
Trabant, a small acrobatic orchestra that alternately performed folk dance music and played for stage productions (Arena fetival Erlangen); Mistress, a chamber sextet performing pieces by Stefano Zorzanello; Angeli-Zorzanello duo usually performing in improvised music context, open to join other musicians for collaborations.
During this same period, Paolo Angeli began playing the tuba with the Banda Roncati, a wonderful experience relating music and social engagement, drums with the Diamant Brin, the serbian musician Dragan Nicolic's group, and he founded a quintet for voices that performed a paraliturgic repertoire from the area around Gallura in northern Sardinia. He cofounded the Scuola Popolare di Musica Ivan Illich as well as the independent label Erosha.
He also played with Eva Kant ensemble (a group now made up of 28 musicians).
Musicians such Fred Frith (performing a work entitled Pacifica -Music Action-Nancy and Angelica Festival 1994) and Butch Morris (Conduction '32), have performed with this group over the years.
With Eva Kant and L.M.&I. Paolo Angeli takes part of the international tour Risonanza Magnetica '96 (Podewill, Bimhuis, Rotterdam).
A renewed interest in Sardinian popular music led him to delve deeper into the understunding of the musical tradition of northern Sardinia through his acquainstance with Giovanni Scanu (the oldest living Sardinian guitar player) who taught him about the different forms of song usually accompanied by guitar .
In 1995 he released the CD "Dove dormono gli autobus", for the Erosha label, which was presented on the Italian radio program Audiobox (RAI Radio3) and given honorable mention for the contemporary music section at the Iceberg '96 competition. As part of the festival Isole che Parlano (Palau, August '96) at Link (Bologna) and live on Audiobox for Italian radio (RAI, Rome, April 1997), the group Fraili performed the musical project live, culmination of all the above mentioned musical experiences.
The same year Paolo Angeli started giving solo concerts on a very special "prepared" sardinian guitar. He also performed at the international festival Die lange nacht der gitarre (Podewill, Berlin) and was awarded first prize at the Posada Jazz Project 1997 competition. He released a solo CD Linee di fuga, and performed in several important Jazz and Contemporary music festivals (Sant'Anna Arresi Jazz; Clusone Jazz; Angelica; Curva Minore, RAI radio 3 cc.).
He has played with Jon Rose, Otomo Yoshide, Frank Schulte, Elliot Sharp, Carlo Actis Dato.
He graduated with the highest of grades from the University of Bologna's, Faculty of Drama, Art, Music, and Performance-DAMS. His thesis entitled "La gara di canto. Il canto a chitarra nella Sardegna Settentrionale" was on the ethnic music of northern Sardinia. He is currently working on compiling the music library Archivio musicale Mario Cervo of traditional music for Sardinia's Regional Institute for Ethnic Studies (Istituto regionale Etnografico della Sardegna). He is working as artistic producer in the Isole che Parlano festival (Palau-Sardinia), an intenational meeting of art, music, drama.
