ANDREA BELFI 5 Titles
Andrea Belfi started studying drums at the age of 14. Between 1998 and 2001, he lived in Milan where he attended Alberto Garutti's contemporary art course, which helped him develop a wider understanding of art. Between 2000 and 2008 he featured in Rosolina Mar, an instrumental rock trio. Since 2002, Belfi has been developing a solo live-set, where he uses his drummer's skills along with his long-time research into electroacoustic devices and synthesizers. He has released three solo albums so far: in 2002 he self-produced, under his own label Chocolateguns, his first solo record Ned n°2, which received excellent reviews (The Wire, Bananafish). His second solo album Between Neck & Stomach was released in September 2006 by the Swedish label Häpna. This album was well-reviewed by publications such as The Wire, Vital Weekly, Boomkat, and All Music Guide. His last solo record Knots, recorded & produced by Giuseppe Ielasi, was released by Die Schachtel. Between 2006 and 2008, AB conceived, with the visual contribution of Mirco Santi, his project Stillivingrooms, which could be described as an audio/visual event between a sound installation, a performance, and a private screening of old family films. It has been presented at Netmage Festival in Bologna (January 2008), and at the Claudio Buziol Foundation in Venice (May 2008). In 2009 he started a number of new collaborations with a wide range of artists, including a trio with American musician and sound art teacher David Grubbs (Gastr del Sol, Bastro, Squirrel Bait) and Stefano Pilia (3/4hadbeeneliminated). He is also a member of the trio Il Sogno del Marinaio together with Pilia and the electric bass legend Mike Watt (Minutemen, Firehose, Iggy And The Stooges). He is also in a duo with the Dutch musician Machinefabriek and in another duo with German improviser Ignaz Schick. He started a duo named Tumble with electroacoustic composer and improviser Attila Faravelli and is in a band named Hobocombo meant as a tribute to the American percussionist and composer, Moondog.
