about


io2Emanuele Errante is one of the pioneers of the Netaudio scene in Italy, with his netlabel OpenLab Records. He created the first ever online festival (NetstockFest), where artists and audiences around the world shared the same virtual venue for 3 days of uninterrupted music. He composed three solo albums (“Migrations”, “Humus”, “Time Elapsing Handheld”) and 3 collaborative albums (“Out and About”  with Enrico Coniglio and Elisa Marzorati , “The North Green Down” with Dakota Suite, “ELEM EP” with ELEM’s quartet). He is also co-author of the song “I Miss You” by Stefano Panunzi featuring stellar artists like Mick Karn and Andrea Chimenti. He had been a member of the band ELEM, with Marco Messina, Fabrizio Elvetico and Loredana Antonelli, for 4 years. His compositions are mainly based on the search for the right balance between acoustic instruments and electronic sounds, manipulated by art in sound environments of deep introspection.
