Alessandro Bosetti
Was born in Milan, Italy in 1973. Composer, saxophonist and sound artist. He works on the musicality of spoken words and unusual aspects of spoken communication and produced text-sound compositions featured in live performances, radio broadcastings and recordings for labels of experimental music in. In his work he moves on the line between sound anthropology and composition. Field research and interviews often build the basis for his abstract compositions. As a saxophonist he has developed an original instrumental language that incorporates extended techniques, noises, and a strong influence from electronic music. Performances in all European countries, USA and Japan. Broadcastings and record releases in Germany, Spain, France, Italy, New Zealand, USA. Lives and works in Berlin

ARCANUM is a multi-media art ensemble founded in 2005 by composer/performers Ori Barel (Laptop, Compositions) and Alan Lechusza (Woodwinds, Electronics, Compositions). Incorporating Gil Omry-Barel (Video) and Carolyn Lechusza Aquallo (Electric Cello, Electronics) the founding art quartet of ARCANUM became realized. Building upon the multiplicity of histories engaged, ARCANUM has been able to navigate and guide their collective way through active engagement of works which range from improvised to through composed works. Artistic Statement: ARCANUM is devoted to producing multi-media art works which blur the constructed lines of artistic demarcation solidified in a post-modern society. http://www.myspace.com/arcanumartensemble
