Anafora is an audiovisual work inspired by the Daunia, a tribe of Balkan origin who settled in Apulia (Southern Italy), merging with local Italic population between the 13th and the 9th centuries B.C.

By means of contemporary technology, the electronically-generated rock painting and primordial soundscape, Anafora tells of a world of travels and migrations – a world between the experiences of everyday life (fire, rain, sailing) and that of unfathomable symbolic signs (dances, processions, the worshipping of deities, and death).

Conferences and performances in Europe and the Americas. He is currently investigating the understanding of the organ (sound identities, spatial values, performance practices) both as a theoretician and as a composer/performer. He lives in Venice, Italy.
