Jazz concert and workshop @ Houz of Blues - 23rd January

Brain on a Sofa:

Brain on a Sofa is the solo saxophone performance with electronics by Gianni Denitto. In this project Gianni wants to tell his story: his experiences in different kinds of music, his travels, the cultural contaminations. An experimental solo sax project, pairing Jazz acoustics with electronic sound, exploring the nuances of saxophone and the boundaries of Jazz. Brain on a Sofa is also an album, his second one as a leader. The first one was released by Universal Music Italia. www.giannidenitto.com.

Thanks to the creative loop machine RC 505 (Roland Europe artist from 2014) and some external samples, Gianni is able to create original songs with a very personal sound, which include both free style and detailed arrangements. With this musical project he played all over the world since 2014 : Italy, Senegal, India, China, Nepal, Australia, Hong Kong, South Africa.

Gianni Denitto has a wealth of experience in jazz, classical, electronics, sound design and rock music. Gianni completed a Bachelor Degree with honours both in classical music and in jazz after 11 years studying at the Conservatory in Torino, Italy.
