“Processes and materials react in Albini’s music like a chain of chemical experiments, where new formulas are applied to old component and vice versa. […] Each one of his works invites us to think of itself as a pure sounding idea. So every piece is a monument to sounding ideas, and his music – in the deep humanistic spirit of this composer-mathematician – a musica monumentalis.”
Giovanni Cestino, musicologist
In his vast catalogue of scores Giovanni Albini (b.1982) has deepened the use of quantitative methods in music and composition, developing a personal and unique mathematically informed aesthetics.
