Romina Daniele

Electronics studio composer, vocalist and performer, writer. Daniele's solo artist career started in 2005, awarding the Demetrio Stratos International Award for musical experimentation for the emerging artist best project. In the same year, Daniele released Diffrazioni Sonore, a complex album project focused on the relationship between improvisation and construction made with the "voice as instrument" and vocal and new compositional technologies published in the 2010 by the new Italian Label RDM Records. During the last years, the award has been given for the Career to the artists Diamanda Galàs e Meredith Monk, Fred Frith, Fatima Miranda.

In the 2008 she released the second record Aisthànomai, il Dramma della Coscienza (cd, 2008), for voice and electronics, in which the sound research and the sonic composition, as in the field of vocalism as in that of electronics music, are the main elements.

She has also published in the 2010 for the book publishing label RDM Records the collected poems Poesie 1995-2005 (e-book/book, Italian and English bilingual edition); and the essayes Il dialogo con la materia disintegrata e ricomposta, un'analisi di Thema (Omaggio a Joyce) di Luciano Berio and Ascenseur pou l'échafaud, Il luogo della musica nell'audiovisione (e-book/books, Italian).

Born in Naples and living in Milan, Romina Daniele has carried on studies about history, methodology of art, cinema, photography and aesthetics and has gone through different musical and didactic experiences. All the studies carried on in poetry, music, vocalism, theatre and art, have been fundamental for the production of the records.
The main elements are: the sound research and the sonic composition, as in the field of vocalism as in that of electronics music composition, the exploration of the sound waves in frequency and time domain.
The voice in its differing, unexpected and sudden shades, dominates a sign universe, in which faraway melodies and ancient calls meet contemporaneous technologies of composition; weaving the way to explore the perception territories and its processes.
Between construction and dismantling, composition and instinct, Romina Daniele performs the tragedy of consciousness in an open comparison with the listener. To find the human awareness (by man on man), or the reasons for its absence.
Romina Daniele has been working on her new album since 2009. The record will be released on RDM Records, with which she started a collaboration in January 2010.

«The voice and the sound are so pure are so well performed that literally take the breath away.» (M. Marchini)

«Romina is able skinning the skin from the emotions until it comes to the bare flesh, destabilizing the listener who will be undoubtedly marked by the experience.» (L. Rapetti).

«Romina Daniele stands in front of the audience stimulating it and creating fascinating and shivering sounds, throwing the listener in a "lyrics-voice-music" spiral that oblige us to confront with ourselves.» (A. Arena)
