Francesco Giannico is an italian electroacoustic musician, videoartist and webdesigner. He is co-founder of the Italian Soundscapes Archive (AIPS) and Oak Editions Label. He’s graduated in “Musicology and Musical Heritage” at the University of Lecce with a thesis on “History of film music”.He published his works for many labels and he collaborated with many artists like: Bruno Dorella, Amy Denio, Kim Cascone, Thollem McDonas, Zac Nelson, Stefan Bonitatibus , Ben Chatwin, Mary Levykina, Anna Aleksandra Waliszewska. Fabio Orsi , Alessio Ballerini.

His musical approach is better described as a cinematic journey which pushes the boundaries of digital media even further by incorporating smooth melodies and gentle textures. More canonical instruments such as guitar and piano are constantly present into Francesco Giannico’s music, within interrupted structures or long and dreaming
sonorous carpets.

During the end of 2010 and the beginning of 2011 he created with Alessio Ballerini the network “Archivio Italiano dei Paesaggio Sonori” to promote and diffuse the soundscapes culture www.archivioitalianopaesaggisonori.it

Thurston Moore wrote (from Sonic Youth): “…Even less jazzic is Folkanization by Francesco Giannico. This young Italian electro-acoustic composer in whose work we can hear tendrils of everything from Luigi Nono to Toru Takemitsu. Filled with odd details, the music is fascinating.”
