Born in the VCO, Alberto still lives there.
In 2014, after his degree in Media Studies and the master in music composition for the cinema at the Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia in Rome, he completed his bachelor in Electronic Music and Sound Technologies at the Como Conservatory.
His thesis was 'New Musical Forms: The Remix, aesthetic, techniques, instruments'.
He also took courses in MaxMSP programming with TOBOR EXPERIMENT, and piano and composition with Roberto Olzer.

In 2014, he's been in Tokyo with Red Bull Music Academy.

Since 2015, he's in the roster of THE ITALIAN NEW WAVE, Club To Club's format that promotes the new Italian music creativity.

He's one of the founders of Floating Forest, an improvised music label based in northern Italy, publishing artists such as Davide Merlino, Achille Succi, Pasquale Mirra, Sabir Mateen, Garrison Fewell and many others.
He performs recordings, mix and masterings for this and other labels.

Right now, he's teaching live electronics for IED Milano, and working on a contemporary dance project together with Annamaria Ajmone.

He's not a dj.
