Milanese composer Piero Milesi was one of the most prominent Italian artists in the field of electronic minimalism.
After having studied cello, he graduated with a degree in experimental and electronic music composition from the Milan conservatory. He then joined the Gruppo Folk Internazionale entourage and got a degree in architecture with a thesis on the relationship between space and sound.
"An ethereal wonder from an Italian architect / music installation & soundtrack master. A lush adventure of mediative synth and melodic scores for lyricon and small chamber ensemble.
Highly recommended to astronautic mineral engineers of the mental system."
Working in a melodic vein, The Nuclear Observatory Of Mr. Nanof veers from ethereal solo keyboard electronics to scores for lyricon and small chamber ensemble. Lovely, yet also rich musically.
