Fabio Perletta is a sound and installation artist living and working in Italy. In his work he investigates notions such as presence, silence and impermanence, encouraging different levels of experience, engagement and contemplation. Being concerned with matter and immaterial, his research is focused on duality, letting paradoxes coexist. Perletta’s practice reveals an inner discipline which goes beyond the scope of rational coordinates, whilst addressing reality and small things.
His work encompasses recorded compositions, performances, site-specific interventions and installations, appearing worldwide at festivals, art spaces and artistic residencies including A×S Festival (Pasadena, US), Human Resources (Los Angeles, US), VOLUME (Los Angeles, US), EMS Elektronmusikstudion (Stockholm, SE), BlueProject Foundation (Barcelona, ES), Arts Santa Mònica (Barcelona, ES), Museum of Modern Art (Medellín, CO), Musee National des Arts Asiatiques Guimet (Paris, FR), Ftarri (Tokyo, JP), Kid Ailack Art Hall (Tokyo, JP), Ryosokuin Temple (Kyoto, JP), Art Center (Tsukuba, JP), Café OTO (London, UK), O’ Art Space (Milan, IT), Saturnalia Festival (Milan, IT), Eufònic Festival (Ulldecona/Barcelona, ES), E-fest Cultures Numériques (La Marsa, TN), roBOt Festival (Bologna, IT), Acusmatiq Festival (Ancona, IT), Flussi Festival (Avellino, IT), Krake Festival (Berlin, DE), Auditorium Parco della Musica (Rome, IT), AlbumArte Gallery (Rome, IT).
His solo and collaborative recordings are documented on LINE, Dragon’s Eye Recordings, aufabwegen, Monochrome Vision and his own imprint 901 Editions, founded in 2008, which has since released more than 30 close-to-silence, immersive and experimental music editions by internationally renowned artists.
