About

Matteo Franceschini, aka TOVEL, is an Paris-based Italian experimental electronic music composer, poly-instrumentalist (electric bass, piano, clarinet) and performer. Silver Lion for Music at the 2019 Venice Biennale, he produces electro performances and writes film music, symphonic works and operas.
TOVEL’s music takes us into a real timeless universe shaking up the codes of classical and electronic, in a jubilant encounter between written creation (the score) and performance.
Dreamlike, pulsing, explosive music that never stops changing. In Gravity, his first album, the acoustic sounds of piano, saxophone and strings, woven with the explosions of modular synthesizers. On stage, TOVEL delivers an unprecedented and intense live performance, a hypnotic, transfigured and dazzling musical tale.
