    Michele Spanghero

    Gorizia (Italy) • 1979
    Michele Spanghero © Michele Spanghero
    Graduated in Modern Literature at the University of Trieste, Michele Spanghero has also attended workshops on electronic and improvised music, sound design and video making. He has exhibited and performed in different international contexts such as museums, galleries, clubs and festivals in Italy, France, Spain, Switzerland, Slovenia, Austria, Czech Republic, Germany, Belgium, Denmark, Netherlands, Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Turkey, Egypt and USA.
    Since 2007 he's a resident artist at Stazione di Topolò / Postaja Topolove (Italy). In 2008 he has participated in a one-month artist residency program in MoKS – Mooste (Estonia). In 2016 he was nominated as Best young artist in Italy by Artribune.
     His discs have been released for several labels such as Dedalus Records, headphonica, Palomar Records, Gruenrekorder and MiraLoop.
    His research focuses on the acoustic art, declined in the form of music or sound art, and on visual art in the attempt to find a natural synthesis (non synaesthetic) between these two forms of expression. The methodological approach characterizes his work through a continuous survey of the limits of the media: through the study of music and theater, he has indeed acquired an oblique approach that, usually starting from the sound, becomes instinctively tangential to visual art. The creative act is developed by a reaction to the accumulation of information that surrounds us. From this (formless because always mediated) mass of data, starts for him the impulse to research and test a new semantic system of the pre-existing matter.

    He lives and works in Monfalcone.
