Riccardo La Foresta
Riccardo La Foresta is a percussionist and sound artist from Modena, Italy, whose practise sits between the fields of experimental music, free jazz and sound art. In recent years his research has involved questioning the role of the drum as a percussive instrument by focusing on the development of a system called Drummophone. This entails exploring resonances and vibrations to generate acoustic drones, ancestral melodies and complex beats that drastically distance the instrument from traditional drumming.
