Gianni Lenoci (Monopoli, 6/6/1963), pianista, compositore, didatta, performer multimediale ed artista visuale, è personalità artistica inquieta e sperimentatrice, come evidenziato dalla ormai pluridecennale corrispondenza empatica con alcuni compagni di avventure (in particolare Steve Potts, Kent Carter, Gianni Mimmo), e dal suo progetto Hocus Pocus, gruppo a geometria variabile dal trio fino alla dimensione orchestrale.
