Alberto Ricca lives in a quiet, still town. He likes stories. Born in the VCO, Alberto still lives there. As Bienoise, he released albums and EPs under Concrete records (“Small Hopes of Common People”, an album of soundtracks for unfinished movies, 2015), Bitcrusher (“Sono una Teiera Tonda\Il mio beccuccio è a forma d’onda”, 2010, as Maestro delle Metope), White Forest (“Meanwhile, Tomorrow”, widely regarded as one of the most interesting italian electronic albums of 2015). Since 2015, he’s part of The Italian New Wave, with some of the most interesting italian producers. His music has been labeled as free form techno, glitch house, folktronic: he tries to create a listening experience framed by memory, playing with the limits of genres, intruments, media. He’s one of the founders of Floating Forest, an improvised music label based in northern Italy, publishing artists such Davide Merlino, Achille Succi, Pasquale Mirra, Sabir Mateen, Garrison Fewell and many others. He performs recordings, mix and masterings for this and other labels. He participated in 2014 Red Bull Music Academy in Tokyo. In 2014, after his degree in Media Studies and the master in music composition for the cinema at the Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia in Rome, he completed his bachelor in Electronic Music and Sound Technologies at the Como Conservatory. He also took courses in MaxMSP programming, piano, and composition. He’s not a dj.” [Resident Advisor]

Are you enjoying what you see on PAYNOMINDTOUS? If that’s the case, we’d like to kindly ask you to subscribe to our newsletter, our Facebook group, and also to consider donating a few cents to our cause. Your help would be of great relevance to us, thank you so much for your time!

PAYNOMINDTOUS is a non-profit organization registered in December 2018, operating since late 2015 as a webzine and media website. In early 2017, we started our own event series in Turin, IT focused on arts, experimental, and dancefloor-oriented music. We reject every clumsy invocation to “the Future” meant as the signifier for capitalistic “progress” and “innovation”, fully embracing the Present instead; we renounce any reckless and ultimately arbitrary division between “high” and “low”, respectable and not respectable, “mind” and “body”; we support and invite musicians, artists, and performers having diverse backgrounds and expressing themselves via variegated artistic practices.
