Giovanni Lami (Ravenna, Italy, 1978) is a sound artist and musician who work within soundscape and sound- ecology boundaries. Graduated in Food Science and Technologies and in Photography.
Today – just using a different media – he works with samples, crops and real time signals processing.

His research is related with the study of resonant surfaces in the field, degradation processes and the limit/interferences of each device used to record or reproduce a sound. It’s an investigation focused on small sound-areas and details you can reach during the play, far away from the simple surface of the sound, exploring the inner qualities of an instrument, a substrate, a device, or a mix of them.

In 2016, with Enrico Malatesta and Glauco Salvo, he founded MU, a independent association devoted to sound-experiences, acting as a listening platform to develop and bring fresh and smart gigs, workshops, listening sessions in our area.
