#____________Alberto Ricca

Bienoise in Tokyo by Dan Wilton Born in the VCO, Alberto still lives there.
In 2014, after his degree in Media Studies at Cattolica in Milan 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.

He teaches live electronics performance and synthesis at IED Milano.
In 2014, he's been in Tokyo with Red Bull Music Academy.
He collaborated as Artistic co-Director at the first edition of NeXTones festival, and as Cultural Manager Assistant at Club TO Club 2015.

As Bienoise, he performed his live shows in festivals such Club TO Club festival, RedBull, RoBOt, Spring Attitude, NeXTones, Musical Zoo and many others. See the main page for a complete list.

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 curates a selection of sounds that are music if you want them to be, called NON MUSICA, on Radio Raheem.

In 2018, he authored with Annamaria Ajmone his first contemporary dance performance, TO BE BANNED FROM ROME - the Main Theme from the show is the iconic "changeover anthem" released by C2C Festival; for more about this and other dance projects, releases, coding efforts and more works, see below.

His productions sits between contemplation and clubbing, with a deep fetishism for mashing together and pushing the limits of instruments, aesthetics, narrative devices.

He's not a dj.
