We are very happy to introduce the duo Collisions composed of Leonello Tarabella and Alessandro Baris.
Leonello Tarabella, originally a sax player, began working on his gesture recognition technology for computer music in 1995 through his activity as a researcher for the National Council of Research in Italy. During the years he developed two interactive systems to perform electronic music in a new and unconventional way with bare hands.
In 2010 he met Alessandro Baris drummer, multi-instrumentalist and composer known for his composing and performing versatility and sensitivity across a variety of genres including post rock, electronic, pop, improvised music, soundtrack and ambient.
The duo took the name Collisions from the opposition between the futuristic technology of Tarabella and the primordial sound of Baris’ drums, which brought their music in a full and fresh mix with such a unique performing impact which has won them interest and appreciation from the audience through their shows and video releases.
