Compagnia d’Arte Drummatica
acts in the experimental music scene. The project, devised by Mario Martignoni to explore the world of percussion, was enriched as a result of the collaboration of other musicians who enriched the ensemble with new timbres and led Compagnia in the dimension of “incidental music” - a music that was born to relate to the  other arts. The interest in this field has led the group to relate to other forms of art by making collaborations with dance groups, visual artists, writers, and by working in areas such as cinema and theatre. The staff is composed by musicians from different backgrounds, and combines the use of traditional instruments with several invented instruments. Their work ranges  from the discovery of a primitive musicality to the research of peculiar sounds and effects obtained through  an unconventional use of the instruments, a particular attention to “other” musical traditions and a composition which makes frequent use of  improvisation.
 
 
For Compagnia the live performance is the  most natural  and successful mean of emotional communication, either on the stage of a theater or a club, or in street buskers festivals, or in art exhibition venues.
