Event Details

Paolo Angeli

Sardinian Guitarist

Whatever you want to call it, nobody else is doing it quite like this. Paolo Angeli, the Sardinian sorcerer, manually magics beautiful, multi-layered music from his unique prepared guitar: a hybrid orchestra of an instrument with strings going in all directions, foot-pedal-controlled motorised propellers and hammers to create shimmering drones and bass-lines as he bows, strikes, plucks and strums while producing rhythmic atmospherics by treading on a plastic bag and adjusting tunings on the fly. Electronic effects are utilized but no loops. All is live.

With this singular instrument he improvises and composes unclassifiable music, suspended between traditional music of Sardinia, jazz, baroque, post-folk and pre-everything else. Paolo sold out a concert at Carnegie Hall (New York) as well as two nights at SFJazz in Los Angeles and has collaborated with Pat Metheny - for whom he built a guitar - Fred Frith, Hamid Drake, Louis Sclavis, etc.  

“…A sound explorer and artistic orchestrator, Paolo Angeli is known for playing a prepared Sardinian Guitar, a crossbreed instrument provided with additional strings with are bowed or plucked, an added bridge, pedal operated hammers and pick ups. Visionary, multilayered and challenging, Angeli’s music really Sardinian traditional modes, ambient, free improvisation, post-rock and much more. Angeli weaves a unique aesthetic and Jar’a is a great achievement…” Ciro De Rosa - Songlines
