Giorgia Angiuli is an Italian composer and multi-instrumentalist. Angiuli’s love for experimentation started early on in her life, as she went from having a background in classical music to pursuing electronic music production as a career. The epitome of her experimentation can be witnessed in her live performances. She is known for using toys—yes, actual toys that sometimes people don’t even have a name for—images and scents to create multi-dimensional live sets. Some of the instruments she uses are the trumpet, sax, drum pad, keyboards, and her voice. The result is a journey of music genres varying between pop, techno and house.
Mixing and looping these into different arrangements electrifies the dance floor and leaves the audience thirsty for more after a night of dancing their asses off. Since 2013, Angiuli has managed to release tracks and albums on some of the biggest labels, such as Crosstown Rebels, Harry Klein, Kindisch, and Systematic and Suara. Her latest album “In A Pink Bubble” was released on Stil Vor Talent.
On a broader scale, Angiuli—along with her toys—has performed at some of the biggest clubs and festivals around the world, including ones in Berlin, New York, Paris, London, Munich, Madrid, and Paris. Her global presence has increased thanks to her viral video clips that reflect her quirky persona as an artist and performer.
You come from a family of classical musicians; what made you switch to electronic music production?
I love music in all its shapes so at this moment I am just swimming in a new ocean… Actually, when I was a student I had a lot of prejudice against dance music. I thought that it was something vulgar and very easy to do. But I was completely wrong, every music has its own difficulties.
What I really love about dance music is the reaction of the crowd because you can immediately feel what they are thinking about your sound. Dance music is about instinctive reactions and feelings so if they dance, it means they are liking it
Your identity as an artist is very much noticeable in all aspects of your persona —from the way you dress to artwork and the gear you use to make sounds. Can you tell us more about that?
I’ve been collecting toys for many years now. I know sometimes people look at my setup in a suspicious way, but I don’t care. It’s me. I love colors, I love toys and kawaii – cute outfit, I feel a bit like a Japanese girl
I know that maybe with a black outfit and simple equipment everything could be easier but I don’t wanna change for the market rules.
