About us

Giovanni & Ariel "GioAri" in the GioAri Recording Studio

We are both interested in ecological questions, ethnomusicology and different traditions of wisdom. In the last 20 years we began to work with the sounds of natural and human landscapes. We are especially interested in the different approaches to the “Genius Loci”. Through the contemplation of the places, we try to understand and experience the qualities of the vibrations for concentration, relaxation, regeneration, creative imagination and even meditation. We work with synthesizers, samplers, electronic instruments, voices and many kinds of ethnic instruments of many different culture.
