"During the first years of her musical training, Andrea Silvia Giordano attended the E. Bianchi art school, and the vocal course of the F. Ghedini conservatory and Fondazione Fossano Musica. In those years, she sang in several vocal ensembles. In 2015, she started jazz studies at Siena Jazz University (Italy), before moving to Luzern (Switzerland) to study with Susanne Abbuehl and Lauren Newton. In 2017, she attended Stefano Battaglia, Alvise Violin and Ernst Reijseger workshops, which influenced her approach to composition and music. She is currently attending the music performance master at the Norwegian Academy of Music in Oslo. The main aspect which characterises her musical journey is the internal process of self discovery and the attention she pays to the psychological impact of music."

Christian Thoma: oboe, English horn, bass clarinet, composition

"I was born in Aosta, in 1970, and the desire to play was born at the age of 6, when for Christmas I ask my parents to give me a keyboard. So I immediately approached classical music, studying the piano privately until the age of 10.

As a teenager, I met rock and started playing the electric bass in various groups and, at the same time, I enrolled at the Musical Institute of Aosta to study oboe and composition until I graduated in oboe at the Conservatory of Alessandria.

After having carried out concert activity as an oboist in the field of classical music, I approach improvisation and "border" music through which I have the opportunity to express myself both as a performer in genres not practiced with my instrument, and as a composer. In the meantime I study the bass clarinet on my own and I graduated in Jazz at the Conservatory of Turin.

I wrote listening music for ensembles from the duo to the symphony orchestra, soundtracks for short films and documentaries, incidental music for theatrical performances, musicals and contemporary dance, song arrangements and I made performances in multimedia collective.

My music has been performed in important reviews in Europe, South America and Asia and recorded on several CDs.

I have worked, among others, with Stefano Battaglia, William Parker, Butch Morris, Aldo Romano, Dave Liebman, Harris Lambrakis, Fabrizio Bosso, Mario Raja, Carlo Actis Dato, Norbert Pignol, Stéphane Milleret, Achille Succi, Domenico Caliri, Stefano Risso , Alessandro Giachero, Matteo Cigna, Andrea Ruggeri, Pasquale Mirra, Gabriele Mitelli, Giulio Corini, Nelide Bandello, Sinequanon Teatro, Teatro Instabile of Aosta, Alessandra Celesia, Joseph Péaquin, Stefano Benni, Antonio Catania, Enrico Ghezzi ...

Since 1998 I have been teaching theoretical subjects, conducting improvisation and Conducion workshops and taking care of arrangements for the SFOM Orchestra - at the Music Training and Orientation School of the M. I. Viglino Foundation for Musical Culture in the Aosta Valley."

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"This association of two different projects, LAMIEE. and Dròlo Ensemble, comes from a third one, the duet formed by Italian poli-instrumentalists Nicholas Remondino and Andrea Giordano, OTONN, centered in the use of vocals, percussion and electronics.

From one side you have an exploration of feedback and "its acoustic double, a harmonic noise", and from the other reminiscences of a very old folk music expression from Piedmont, the "masche", which is tributed to witches and their rituals. The combination seems simultaneously ancient and contemporary, bringing the music outside of time, and simultaneously popular and experimental, with instruments like the organetto, the pump organ or the accordion sounding along synthesizers, tapes, woodwinds, horns and strings, in hybrids of chamber music and jazz.

Composition and improvisation appear in equal parts, sometimes seeming impossible to tell when there's a score ruling the events and when it's the moment and the spontaneity of the musicians that are in action. The most important aspect is that you never heard anything like this before."-Shhpuma
