Born in Naples and living in Milan, Romina Daniele has carried on studies about history, methodology of art, cinema, photography and aesthetics and has gone through different musical and didactic experiences. All the studies carried on in poetry, music, vocalism, theatre and art, have been fundamental for the production of the records.
The main elements are: the sound research and the sound composition, as in the field of vocalism as in that of electronic music, the exploration of the sound waves in frequency and time domain.
The voice in its differing, unexpected and sudden shades, dominates a sign universe, in which faraway melodies and ancient calls meet contemporaneous technologies of composition; weaving the way to explore the perception territories and its processes.
Between construction and dismantling, composition and instinct, Romina Daniele performs the tragedy of consciousness in an open comparison with the listener. To find the human awareness (by man on man), or the reasons for its absence.
Romina Daniele has been working on her new album since 2009. The record will be released on RDM Records, with which she started a collaboration in January 2010.
