about


Francesco Gagliardi || ~raw is a Milan-based experimental composer, sound designer and programmer.
His sound research focuses on creating complex and chaotic soundscapes analyzing the threshold between signal and noise. Exploring circuit bending, self-built corrupted instruments and softwares, he aims to imagine other possible sound realities characterised by rough sounds, discontinued rhythms and warm noises.
