Giovanni Bertelli was born in Verona, Italy, where he spent the first twenty-eight years of his life studying piano, philosophy and composition. In 2008 he attended Stefano Gervasoni’s class in Paris. He spent a couple of years at Ircam, before beginning work with Frédéric Durieux and Marc Battier in 2014 on SACRe doctoral research. His project, concerning the physical movements of performers, will finish in 2017.

Of his relationship to music, he says: “I must confess that I have never been able to consider it as an object, even less as a tale. Rather I’ve always seen it as some sort of place, even better as an enigmatic map in a one-to-only-god-knows ratio, deliberately conceived in order to (mis)direct us through the boundless and unintelligible spaces that surround us – me and you, my reader (and listener too, I hope).
