Fabrizio Nastari (b. 1990) is an Italian composer whose aesthetic is based on the use of ironical devices. Using a broad spectrum of compositional techniques, to create contrast or to seek cohabitation for different musical texture, Fabrizio wants to reflect upon the absurdity of the time we are living in and the complexity of the human being. Irony has a primary role as inspiration and as a rhetorical and compositional tool as well. In this regard, he will present his research at the 15th International Congress on Musical Signification.

Currently, on the other hand, he’s working on how the musical stylometry can be used both to analyse the styles of composers and as a meaning for composing. The first outcome of this research was presented during the International Dublin Guitar Symposium along with a new composition Studio – riflessi based on this technique as well.
