Simone Salvatici

I'm a London based, composer, multi-instrumentalist, sound artist and sound practitioner whose music has been often associated with the Minimalist,  Ambient and Drone genre. In these pages I'm trying to connect and bring together all my sonic experiences  that go from punk to minimalism from soundscape to sound healing. For sometime I have struggled to find a connection with all these different approaches but I can now see that are all coming from the same source, my absolute pure commitment with sound element.  
As composer of instrumental music my compositional projects are primarily concerned with disclosing contrasting elements  such as movement and stillness, acoustic and processed sounds, melodies rising out of the drones and return to them, activation and contemplation, resulting in a constant battle between two polarities continuously evolving.  I am particularly interested in combining these polarities together making them coexist to the point that they become something else that lives of its own.   

I have been releasing records with collaboration projects  Clorinde and  Polbrone  playing a vast array of musical instruments and our releases have received an enthusiastic chorus of critical approval. I have been also collaborating with filmmakers, directors and visual artists and  performed in venue such as Tate Modern, Sadlers Wells Theatre, Cafe Oto, Centre of Contemporary Art Glasgow.

As a Sound Practitioner I use mix methods learned from  studies at  Sound Therapy with BAST, Don Conreaux Indian and Eastern Philosophies. My intention is promote movement, energetic and emotional.  I use large gongs, crystal bowls, Himalayan bowls, tuning forks and other drones instruments.
