Carlo Maria Amadio is an Italian composer and performer of electronic music currently based in Milan. He studied Electronic Music at the Conservatory “G.F Ghedini” of Cuneo, “G.B Martini” of Bologna and at the Institute of Sonology of The Royal Conservatory of The Hague, where he attended the One Year Course.
His music is influenced both by minimalism and contemporary club culture related music genres.
The feedback process between humans and machines in music making, considered as a primary trigger not only for creativity but also for a wider knowledge of the self, is one of the main inspiration of his current sonic research. As a result of this and failed attempts to produce functional music, he released his first EP “Subject to Drift” on SØVN records (May, 2016) and “Kenk!” (August, 2017) on the polish label Brutaż.
Since 2017 he is a part of Punctum, a collaborative project with Caterina Barbieri. Punctum’s debut album “Remote Sensing” (May, 2017) has been released on Berlin’s imprint SUMME and presented live at Nowhere Festival (IT) and The Long Now, MaerzMusik (DE).
His music has been described as “a story of a blossoming romance, like when decontextualised acid met with relentless tension and they hopped into a hypercube. Here, Carlo Maria uses a pointilistic diablerie to extract a loud mixture of droney melancholy and rhythmic euphoria. After releasing a blissful record with Caterina Barbieri on Σ (as Punctum), Carlo chooses the path of reduction and force. "Kenk!" lays hold of you and makes you move somewhere. Quickly, but with no intended direction. Yes, it's made for the dancefloors - you just have to trust us on this one." (Brutaż)
