Sylvia Cignoli and Andrea Tremolada

Silvia Cignoli graduated as a classical guitarist at the Verdi Conservatory (Milan) and in 2011 she obtained the Master of Arts in Music Performance (Italian Swiss Conservatory). She played in very different areas of interest, from classical music to musical, from theatre to opera.She specialized in experimental languages, thus she collaborates with many composers, ensembles and contemporary music festivals. Starting from her experience on classical and electric instrumentation, she creates site-specific and semi-improvised musical noisy soundscapes. Since she loves the interaction between different forms of art, she created the audiovisual project “irid”.
