Fausto Balbo, born in 1970, lives in Garessio (CN) Italy.
Began his expressive career in the world of sound and music as a
guitarist, and he has performed as a soloist and in a number of bands,
publishing many albums from 1989 on.
He has always been fascinated by the construction of musical
instruments, and his pieces have progressively changed over the years,
becoming the audio sculptures that he makes today. He often rediscovers
and highlights the hidden aspects of everyday objects, both in their
technological and audio characteristics. He gives space to what lies
submerged, and gives voice to hitherto unexplored realms, with
compositions in which an electronic component and its sound (altered
with respect to its usual function) create a sequence of cause and
effect in which kinetics and cymatics mutually interact.
