Info


Fausto Balbo, born in 1970, lives in Garessio (CN) Italy. Primarily self-taught, he works in sound, visual and sculptural-sound forms. He has been part of several varied musical groups as well as publishing several solo CDs and has collaborated with various musicians and artists, such as John Pearce, Andrea Marutti, Femina Faber, Patrizia Oliva, Silvia Celeste Calcagno and Carlos Ferrando i Bellés. He has written music for Enomisossab which was then performed by the Achitorti quartet. In 2012 he took on the Veterae Resonantiae Futurae project with Femina Faber, which, the next year, also involved the transmedial artist Pier Giorgio De Pinto. In 2014 the Movimentosordo project started with the artist Carlos Ferrando i Bellés, producing installations that can be defined as the result of the encounter/confrontation between sculpture, photography and infrasounds. He curated the sound for Interno 8 – la fleur coupée with Silvia Celeste Calcagno, winner of the 59th Faenza Award – their collaboration continued in 2016 with sound on her work Ring around the Rosie, which was selected for the la Ventiquattresima Biennale Internazionale di Vallauris (F). The same year his first show of sculptural-sound installations opened at the Circolo Culturale Eleutheros in Albissola Marina (SV) Italy.
