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.
