MONDOLETTOSOTTOILCORVO was founded in 2018 by Gandolfo Pagano and Willehad Grafenhorst.
MONDOLETTOSOTTOILCORVO merges the experience of two musicians, grown up in opposite regions of Europe. Through David Chiesa they met in the Madonie, in Sicily, surprising themselves in an immediate synergy from which the idea of this project was born.
Improvisation is a practice in which every action is mediated by mutual listening that generates dialogue. The musicians are constantly interacting, transmitting suggestions and each action becomes the cause and consequence of unpredictable developments creating real compositions.
