Valerio Orlandini (Florence / Italy, 1986) seeks an ideal union among different disciplines: music, poetry, visual arts, and anything else that can be a part of a whole.
As a musician, he is active since 2005 with the ethereal ambient project Symbiosis
. But Valerio soon felt the need to create another entity, this time simply using his name, to embrace
a broader musical and visual spectrum without the limitations that a specific project, with its own name and imagery, necessarily brings.
During these years Valerio played in selected live events, released some tracks and albums to the masses
and worked together with some of the most interesting underground artits of nowadays, bringing everywhere his dark sounds with a strong cinematic edge.
Valerio also walks on other paths, which often cross the audial one: poetry and photography are interests that strongly contribute to form that whole he is always longing for.
Valerio is involved in two bands, too. The Arctic duo NORV
and the bizzarre musicians guild Collective Nimêl.
The latest evolutions of his research see an interest in soundscapes and their relationship with music and other creative form, and a further convergence of his different expressive means to a coherent, yet unpredictable, world.
