Stefano Giust

Stefano Giust is an Italian improviser musician, drummer, composer and factotum of record label Setola di Maiale. His work is focused on the broad spectrum of improvised and experimental music. From over 30 years he works on these subjects into an acoustic, electric and electronic settings as well as in performative acts. As a drummer, his playing focuses on rhythmic pulse and its destructuration. Rhythm and sound as a continuous and variable flow, no longer thought in terms of meter and measure. Born in 1968, he has started to recording his music at the age of 14. Since then, his approach remained uncompromising, embracing a DIY attitude. Through the years, he has given concerts in Italy, England, Scotland, The Netherlands, France, Germany, Spain, Portugal, Switzerland, Austria, Slovenia, Belgium, Poland, Croatia, Brasil and Vietnam. He has recorded an impressive number of albums with his own main projects or as co-leader, mostly in the fields of improvised music, free jazz and electronic music. He has played with hundreds of musicians, including Evan Parker, Gino Robair, Gianni Gebbia, Thollem McDonas, Herb Robertson, Tobias Delius, Tristan Honsinger, Steve Beresford, Giovanni Maier, Peter Jacquemyn, Edoardo Marraffa, Jean-Luc Guionnet, Walter Prati, Luc Ex, Hélène Labarrière, Keiko Higuchi, Alessandro Bosetti, Clayton Thomas, Guido Mazzon, Patrizia Oliva, Burkhard Beins, Roy Paci, Lotte Anker, Marco Eneidi, Steve Buchanan and Catherine Jauniaux. Some places he has played in: Hanoi New Music Festival (Vietnam), Angelica Festival Internazionale di Musica (Bologna), BRDA Contemporary Music Festival (Slovenja), Mostra SESC de Artes (Brasil), Saturnalia 2017 (Milano), Interpenetration Festival (Graz), MIBnight Jazz Festival (Germany), Chilli Jazz Festival (Austria), Macao (Milano), Vortex/Mopomoso (London), Area Sismica (Forlì), Jazz Club Ferrara, 48th Venice Biennale (Venezia), ZDB (Lisboa), Resonance 104.4FM (London), Fondazione Mudima (Milano). As acousmatic/electronic composer, some of his works have been used or commissioned by experimental film directors and video-artists.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
