Advance tickets for Stefano Barone must be purchased at this link.

Stefano Barone has been invited to the United States to perform at the 2018 Freep Film Festival, which will be held in a variety of Detroit venues April 11 – 15.  Emmy winning director Brian Kaufman, executive video producer at the Detroit Free Press, has used Barone’s music in his latest documentary, “The Wall,” which will receive it’s world premiere at the Freep Film Festival.  He has also used Barone’s music in previous films “Packard: The Last Shift” and “Predator/Prey: The Fight for Isle Royale Wolves.”

Stefano Barone is a composer, guitar player and producer from Italy.

Born in Naples (Italy, 1978), he started playing music when he was very young. He studied piano at first, but picked up the guitar quickly and did not let go. From blues to pop to rock, he went through different musical experiences until he moved to Rome in 2001 and decided to dedicate himself fully to solo acoustic guitar.

When he first listened to Michael Hedges’s striking album Aerial Boundaries in 2003, he began studying modern acoustic guitar techniques and composition with Pino Forastiere, Sergio Altamura and Dominic Frasca. He also embraced contemporary music in general, in particular American minimalism composers such as Steve Reich and Philip Glass.

Stefano has a masterful guitar technique and an extraordinary control of electronic effects and devices, used in many of his creations. He skillfully uses the devices and effects at his disposition creating great orchestration and harmony. His Neapolitan roots gave him innate and infallible sense of rhythm and the natural ability to improvise.

Stefano will also be introducing his most recent release “Alive.  His compositions are created with a 6 and 10 string guitar, a multi-track machine along with an intermittent alteration of the guitar fretboard in order to accompany his music with a cello bow.  In such a perfect balance between acoustic and electronic, he performs live an uninterrupted program in which all the songs played are woven together in the most brilliant of methods.
