Musician

Musica ex Machina

Born:

Musica ex Machina is a project born in Cagliari (Sardinia, 2005) with the objective of creating an original repertoire, oriented toward improvisation and live performances.

The result was a surprising ever-changing repertoire that immediately found public support. In 2006, we started a collaboration with the American Dance Asylum, a New York State non profit organization that produces the Ichnusa Festival (a bridge of culture and entertainment between New York and Sardinia)

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
