GIOfest XV - Alipio C Neto 

Brazilian native and Portuguese resident Alipio C. wears multiple hats - as an active performer, composer, improviser, poet, educator, and scholar – but all those roles have Interdisciplinary Music Studies at their heart. He collaborates with various intermedia and transdisciplinary projects, including contemporary and electronic music ensembles, silent film music, dance, theatre, and visual artists. He is particularly concerned with the relationships between musicology-ethnomusicology, literature, philosophy of improvisation, science, and aesthetics of music and has had numerous of his own poems published too, as well as having worked with Steve Beresford, Marilyn Crispell, George Lewis and countless others.
