Interview with A Cavaliere
Francesco Cavaliere’s recent musical works put him into a category of his own. His two most recent works, Gancio Cielo 1+2, blast out of nowhere to envelop the listener in a foreign storied world of chimera creatures, exotic percussion, and interstellar shifting keyboard melodies. He performed in September with the legendary David Behrman at BOZAR and KRAAK’s Sonic Arts Revisited. We sat down together at the Brussels premier of Cirque du Soleils’ Totem, to uncover where his music comes from and to articulate what sets it apart from modern and past experimental musics.
