Andrea Serrapiglio’s B.A.D. INSTRUMENTS
I live in Turin, Italy. I play cello and I work with dance and theatre. I practice and teach circuit bending.
I have a Recording Studio where I record and mix most of my music and few people whom I love & like.
I also like to change anyhow the real world with sensors and weird microphones, I play the musical saw and the Ukulele and I’m practicing the overtone singing.

ANDREA SERRAPIGLIO & HIS MUSIC
On his new album (The Ship) Andrea Serrapiglio is droning and whirling and vibrating the strings to within an inch of their lives…….
The music is at once dark and thick but also cracking with blinding madness and heartbreaking beauty.
All together the thing leaves you with the sense of having taken a trip only to come home slightly changed.
…I knew then and there I’d found my guy simply because he was fully aware of what I was asking him to do,aware of what it’s like to tour indie rock circa 2009 (when this was) and I had the feeling he might do it anyway. And yes he did. Playing with Andrea brought soul and noise to the songs…. he was able to not only adapt immediately, but to make his mark and make the music his own.No rehearsals, get on stage and play, and he killed it. Either you have it, or you don’t and Andrea has it…

Andrea Serrapiglio’s B.A.D. instruments & Cello
The cello (/ˈtʃɛloʊ/ CHEL-oh; plural cellos or celli) is a bowed string instrument with four strings tuned in perfect fifths. It is a member of the violin family of musical instruments, which also includes the violin, viola and double bass.
The cello is used as a solo instrument, as well as in chamber music ensembles, string orchestras, and as a member of the string section of symphony orchestras. It is the second-largest bowed string instrument in the modern symphony orchestra, the double bass being the largest.
Cellos were derived from other mid- to large-sized bowed instruments in the 16th century, such as the viola da gamba, and the generally smaller and squarer viola da braccio, and such instruments made by members of the Amati family of luthiers. The invention of wire-wrapped strings in Bologna gave the cello greater versatility. By the 18th century, the cello had largely replaced other mid-sized bowed instruments.
I was a rebel and I wanted to do something that nobody else did, and nobody else played the cello. Also, I was also a small kid and I liked the fact that it was big.
