Danilo Casti
Cagliari, 9 Giugno 1979


Musicista e compositore.
Applica le sue ricerche musicali in diversi media, spaziando dal teatro di ricerca, alla danza contemporanea, al video e all'installazione. Collabora attivamente con diversi artisti. Sviluppa nel corso degli anni un interesse verso le metodologie compositive in tempo reale, ricercando le diverse possibilità performative applicate alla danza e al video. La sua ricerca è volta prevalentemente alla modalità esecutiva del live electronics e alle possibilità gestuali della musica elettroacustica applicata ad altri media. Una critica profonda verso la società e di tutto l’ambiente sonoro contemporaneo spinge la sua linea filosofica verso influenze estetiche decostruttiviste.
