Alex Zampini is an interdisciplinary artist active in the field of music, film and contemporary dance. Contaminated by the consistent variety of the sonic multiverse, he generates instrumental sound sculptures made of electro-acoustic hybrid textures, harmonic dissonances, distorted guitars and stillness.His creative approach is improvisational, based on mutual interaction and (un)poetic and subjective interpretation of set and setting.
As a process-oriented animal, his projects are self-generated opportunities to get lost, keep questioning and stay curious, while welcoming transformation and flexibility in the creative equation.
As both visual and sound artist he collaborates with humans from different cultural ecosystems, exploring the in-between gaps across disciplines.
Power structures, trance states, civil disobedience and environmental activism are some of the themes that keep Alex engaged in his practice.
Grown up in Bolzano, Italy (1986), he moved to Verona to graduate at the Academy of Fine Arts, where he could deepen his interest for photography and video art and start shaping his own language under the guidance of valuable mentors.
In 2010 he moved to Berlin and discovered the contact improvisation and contemporary dance scenes and progressively became involved as musician and film maker.
A fortunate encounter with with the Magpie Collective opened new perspectives to his performative approach and inspired Alex to further explore the relationship with dancers through both music and film.
