Francesco Cavaliere (b. 1980 Piombino, Italy) is known for the sensitivity with which he combines sounds, materials and space, His works are capable of enlivening his listeners’ inner states in an imaginative journey populated by ephemeral presences, phenomena generated by glass, minerals and voices recorded using analogue and digital technologies. First introduced to the world through the tape "Neverending Somersault,” is the author and interpreter of the "Gancio Cielo" audio stories, released as a full length LP on the label Hundebiss (IT).
“The basis for Cavaliere’s music is derived from the prowess of his imagination, which at a young age was stimulated by a gift, given to him by his grandma. “At a very young age, my grandmother, who was a music teacher, gave to me a cassette record player. And as I was an only-child, I would sit in my room alone, and have conversations with the record player and my pre recorded voice. I communicated with it.” (Spencer Clark)
