Giovanni Di Domenico

Giovanni Di Domenico,1977年出生于罗马,钢琴家、表演者、作曲家。

由于他的父亲是被派驻海外的土木工程师,在十岁以前他都随父在非洲生活。他在利比亚生活至5岁,后移居喀麦隆生活了3年,而后再迁至阿尔及利亚生活直到10岁。由于他远离故乡,生活中并没有遇到太多社会动荡,反而是歌剧咏叹调给他和他的兄弟姐妹们留下了深刻记忆。他们自幼吟唱,既可以学习语言,又是一项很好的家庭娱乐活动。自小在国外生活的经历对他的成长有着深刻的影响,他能够清晰地回忆起这些声音:宣礼吏在宣礼塔上唱的召祷歌,召集信徒做祷告的呼唤;从当地市场传来的异国乐器的声音;弥漫在雅温得(Yaoundé,喀麦隆首都)街道的宗教仪式音乐;从喀麦隆保姆口中听来的当地歌谣……

Giovanni Di Domenico进入音乐学院后主修爵士钢琴,继续塑造和磨练他熟练高深的技巧。他在节奏、和声和音调上虽受到非西方传统的影响,但也同样对这些有着敏感的触觉:德彪西(Debussy)的《前奏曲(Préludes)》、贝里奥(Luciano Berio)的《模进(Sequenzas)》、Borah Bergman在Soul Note厂牌下的作品中展示的ambi-ideation技巧,Cecil Taylor密不透风的疯狂演奏,以及Paul Bley那布满伤痕的透明感,当然,还有那些来自地下流行乐的最激进的表现……这些都深刻地影响了他个人的创作。在他的身上,有着一种具有时代意义的特质,而近年来他也与众多拥有着相同特质的优秀音乐家进行过合作,包括Nate Wooley、Chris Corsano、Arve Henriksen、Jim O'Rourke、坂田明(Akira Sakata)、Alexandra Grimal、秋山徹次(Tetuzi Akiyama)、João Lobo和中村延和(Toshimaru Nakamura)等。

他建立了自己的唱片品牌Silent Water,致力于创作和发行电子及其他风格多元的音乐。他现居于布鲁塞尔。

Giovanni Di Domenico

 

Pianist, performer, composer, was born in Rome on the 20th July 1977.

Following his father's consecutive assignments as a civil engineer he actually lived out his first decade in Africa - until he was five in Libya, from then until his eighth anniversary in the Cameroons and until ten in Algeria. His far off native country was not synonymous with civil unrest as much as with opera, whose arias he would memorize with his siblings in order to practice the language and provide some family entertainment. The condition of expatriate had a strong influence on his education - he clearly remembers the calls of the muezzin, the sound of exotic musical instruments in local markets, the ritualistic expression music took in the streets of Yaoundé, or the songs he heard from his nanny in the Cameroons.

When he finally enrolled in music school - majoring in "jazz piano" - he further built on an encyclopedic technique; rhythm, harmony and tone are informed by non-western traditions yet equally sensitive to Debussy's "Préludes", Luciano Berio's "Sequenzas", to the "ambi-ideation" heard in Borah Bergman's Soul Note recordings, Cecil Taylor's polissemic density, Paul Bley's bruised transparency and of course, the most radical manifestations stemming from the underworld of pop music, invariably tied together by his own original praxis. A distinction - one would call it generational - he shares with many of the musicians he has crossed paths with recently, of which we could enumerate Nate Wooley, Chris Corsano, Arve Henriksen, Jim O'Rourke, Akira Sakata, Alexandra Grimal, Tetuzi Akiyama, João Lobo or Toshimaru Nakamura. Di Domenico has founded his own label, Silent Water, home of an eclectic and occasionally unclassifiable production. He lives in Brussels.
