PAOLO ANGELI
ON TOUR FEB 2017
Paolo Angeli (Sardinia)

On tour with Derek Gripper

A genre-defying double bill of daring contrast and brilliant beauty.

Whatever you want to call it, nobody else is doing it quite like this. Paolo Angeli, the Sardinian guitar sorcerer, extracts beautiful multi-layered music from his unique prepared guitar; a hybrid orchestra of an instrument with multi-directional strings, hammers, pedals and propellers which he bows, strikes, plucks and strums. With this singular instrument he improvises and composes unclassifiable music, suspended between free jazz, minimal pop, post-folk and pre-everything else. He has collaborated with Pat Metheny, Fred Frith, Takumi Fukushima and many others; the diversity of sounds and inspirations always feeling coherent and cohesive at his fingertips.
