about  .

Hi, I’m Andrea Di Paolo and I was born in Italy in 1978. I graduated in Piano and Composition (Bachelor and Master degree) and I studied in Rome (Italy) at the National Accademy of Santa Cecilia and in Strasbourg (France) at the CRR Conservatoire, Cité de la Musique et de la Danse. Fundamental in my human and artistic development has been the meeting with Arvo Part, Salvatore Sciarrino, Valentin Silvestrov, Bernardo De Angelis and my long travels in Iceland, Israel, Armenia, Morocco, Scotland and among the populations of Eastern Russia and Balkan countries. My music has been performed in Europe, America and Russia, broadcast by Radio France and Radio RAI and, as a pianist, I played in Italian and foreigns theaters, including Portugal, Serbia, France, England, Norway, Bosnia, Ukraine, Spain, Armenia, Russia, Germany, Romania, Hungary. In 2015 it was published my first album named “Das Universum” recorded in Lviv, Ukraine. Since 2008 I teach at the Italian music universities; now I’m a member of the department of Composition, Harmony and Analysis at the “Niccolò Piccinni” Conservatory in Bari (Italy). In addition to my musical activity, I'm interested in analog and digital photography based on the technique of black and white. In 2017 it was published my first photobook named “Iceland, not all those who wander are lost” and in 2019 was published my second photobook named: "Lost in the Highlands”.

 Lost in the Highlands . Scotland  [extract]


Lost in the Highlands

In the spring of 2019 I traveled in the Scotland highlands between dust, rain, sun, snow, clouds, wind, hail, paths, cliffs, sweat, mud, music, whiskey, tears, sheep, waterfall, castles, ruins, the horizons that face the depth ocean. This collection of photographs is a small diary of an extraordinary and unforgettable journey. Gesualdo Bufalino wrote that there are those who travel to get lost and there are those who travel to find themselves. I travel to go somewhere, feel the freedom of swallows in the spring, because only those who have left can one day go home. With love. Andrea
