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 has been active from 2005 to 2021 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, especially poetry, photography and videoart.
Valerio is also involved in the bizzarre musicians guild Collective Nimêl and used to be part of the Arctic duo NORV.
Currently, his interests go from the study of soundscapes and their relationship with music and other creative forms to an interest in how autonomous systems and artificial intelligence can be used in the process of electroacoustic composition.
