Francesco Venturi composer, vocalist, researcher




Italian duo Interlingua is born from the collision of an improv attitude with a strong sense of form. Their music combines Francesco Venturi's extended voice and percussion with Francesco Fonassi’s non-conventional electronics. Starting from early avant-world influences they took a path of self-fascination based on the mimesis of gesture, soundscape and liturgical seductions. They released two albums and toured in venues and festivals Europe-wide. In 2018 the founded with others the concert venue Spettro, in Brescia, Italy.
