Fabrizio Nastari (b. 1990) is an Italian composer whose aesthetic is based on the use of ironical devices. Using a broad spectrum of compositional techniques to create contrast or to seek cohabitation for different musical textures, Fabrizio wants to reflect upon the absurdity of the time we are living in and the complexity of the human being. Irony has a primary role as inspiration and as a rhetorical and compositional tool as well. In this regard he will present part of his research at the 15th International Congress on Musical Signification.
Currently, on the other hand, he is working on how the musical stylometry can be used both to analyse the styles of composers and as a meaning for composing. The first outcome of this research was presented during the International Dublin Guitar Symposium along with a new composition Studio – riflessi based on this technique as well.
He worked as composer assistant with Luigi Ceccarelli on Inferno: Chiamata pubblica per la Divina Commedia di Dante Alighieri for Ravenna Festival in 2017 (UBU prize).
His music has been performed by important performer such as Mivos Quartet, Quartetto Indaco, Livia Rado, Paolo Ravaglia, Prezioso String Quartet, unassisted fold, Ensemble New Music Tallinn etc. in important Festival in Europe such as Ravenna Festival, Estonian Music Days, highSCORE Festival, Città dei Gremi, VIPA Festival, Le forme del suono and others.
