Alessandro Perini was born in 1983 in Italy. He studied Composition (with Luca Francesconi and Ivan Fedele among others), Electronic Music and Science of Musical Communication in Italy and Sweden.
His very broad artistic production ranges from instrumental and electronic music to audiovisual and light-based works, net-art, land-art, vibration-based works and custom-built machines.
As a composer, he had his compositions played in festivals such as Biennale di Venezia (Italy), Festival Futura (France), Open Spaces (Germany), Connect Festival and New directions (Sweden), Procesas (Lithuania), UNM 2012 (Iceland), Moscow Forum and ReMusik (Russia), Tempus Fugit and Terra Distat (Argentina). In summer 2014 he was in residence at Fondazione Spinola Banna per L'Arte (Italy).
In 2014 he started a research about vibration and tactile sound, called touchmysound, including projects at the Darmstadt Ferienkurse and residencies at Cittadellarte - Fondazione Pistoletto (Italy) and Park In Progress (Belgium).
Among the most significative residencies for visual artists, in 2016 he's been for Imagonirmia Prize in Chiaravalle (Milano, Italy), with a series of projects about site-specific sound art; in 2017 he was in residence at I-Park Foundation in Connecticut (May-June 2017); in 2018 at Fondazione Spinola Banna per L'arte (Italy), where he designed three machines to modify the clay found on-site; and again in 2018 at the BIOART Society in the Finnish Lapland.
He has been teaching courses in audiovisual production for the arts at the Conservatory of Como (Italy) and in the Composition department (electronic music course) at the Music Academy of Malmö, as well as in workshops in Italy, Argentina and Bolivia.
