|Pirandèlo is the meeting between Andrea Gabriele, Marita Cosma and Claudio Sinatti, respectively involved into the music, the images and the videos of this new collaborative project.|
Pirandèlo is a folder of music, photography, videos and writing; the medium of a journey that starts from an organic and tangible abstraction to a cinematic and synaesthetic narration.
The Pirandèlo' shows propose a mix-media performance winding musical genres close to electronica, ambient, pop and jazz; while the images and the videos are characterized by the 'humidity' proper to the film: soft atmospheres, blurred, lighted, wet and dry. Cinematic synaesthesia.

Claudio Sinatti (it)
Claudio Sinatti is a director, video designer and multimedia
artist. He started his career as a director of music promos
for Italian pop artists and bands such as Casino Royale,
|Neffa, Carmen Consoli, Articolo 31, Alex Britti, Africa Unite, 99 Posse. This activity was soon complemented by personal art projects.|
In 1999 Sinatti founded the collective Sun Wu-Kung, a project for audio-visual experimentation that drew together videomakers, photographers, animators, illustrators and musicians. Sinatti continued his exploration of the possible frontiers of live electronics through numerous collaborations with musicians such as Christian Fennesz, Ulrich Troyer, Scanner, Andrea Gabriele and Marita Cosma in the Pirandèlo project, Sergio Messina in the live media project Crop, with the Neapolitan duo Retina.It, with Pierpaolo Leo, with Marco Messina of 99Posse in the Kyo project and with the artists' collective Avatar 41°.
Among Sinatti's recent projects is Symbiosis Orchestra, a collective performance with Iris Garrelfs, Scanner, Stefano Tedesco, Andrea Gabriele, Mario Masullo and Geoff Warren, for which Sinatti created an intricate system of superimposed screens that form a giant video chandelier.
The author of sensitive video-sets that gently conduce an emotional involvement, Claudio Sinatti's aim is not to shock, but to guide the audience participation along an ebb and flow of aesthetic meditation. Sinatti holds frequent lectures and workshops and teaches video design and live mixedmedia at the European Institute of Design in Milan.
