PARSIFAL Paris DJ & Producer | Co-founder of @kinesenrec Booking Europe / World: firstname.lastname@example.org Italian-Swiss DJ and composer Parsifal lives in Paris, where he’s a well-known face on the electronic music scene. He grew up in a very artsy, musical family, learning classical piano before eventually getting a taste for more urban music. Early on in his DJ-ing career he scooped ITF’s Italian champion title in 2009, and he also made runner-up in the DMC France 2008 championship. He studied contemporary art and new media at University of Paris 8, where the theme of his Masters thesis was Music in 20th-century Art. His deep desire for artistic expression led to musical experiments with his composer friends Specialivery, Mess Me and Tommy J Gren. The trio went on to found electronic label Kinesen in 2014. Parsifal has spent the last decade single-mindedly developing a style that allows him to convey his feelings through club music. His inspirations run the gamut from Luigi Russolo and John Cage to new age ambient composers like Brian Eno and Vangelis, but his grooves are infused with House and Hip-hop drum-machine sounds and he mashes it all up with vintage and modern synthesizers. His strongly percussive tracks blend instruments and samples into uplifiting new melodies that foreground deep, organic moods and textures. Today Parsifal’s releases go out on the likes of international label Connected Records. He’s been played by world-renowned DJs at major festivals, so his best sounds are reaching wider audiences. Solomun, Tale of Us and Âme have spun Parsifal tracks, and he has recently shared a stage with David Meyer, Whitesquare, Sobek, Kalyma and D.Y.A. Plenty more collaborations and musical projects are in the pipeline for 2020, so stay tuned!
