Musica ex Machina is a project born in Cagliari (Sardinia, 2005) with the objective of creating an original repertoire, oriented toward improvisation and live performances. To these guidelines, we added the will to produce a type of music that would bring back the spontaneity and folk aspect of jazz, a path we followed to explore different genres of popular world-music. The result was a surprising ever-changing repertoire that immediately found public support.
In 2006, we started a collaboration with the American Dance Asylum, a New York State non profit organization that produces the Ichnusa Festival (a bridge of culture and entertainment between New York and Sardinia). For five years we have jammed with artists like Victor See Yuen, Kenny Brawner, Fred Johnson, Ron McBee, Hasan Bakr, Kevin Nathaniel, Elon Robin Dixon, and Cecilia Smith. The outcome of this experience is the new album L'Age D'Or, produced by the ADA and presented for the first time at the prestigious Sant'Anna Arresi Festival on August 30th 2011. In 2014 Kleiner Flug produced La notte che arrivò l'inverno comics book by Francesco Frongia inspired by Bulgàkov masterpiece the Master and Margarita including new Musica ec Machina album. From album born a spectacular show of music, theater and live painting performed by the band in several prestigious location, among the others Turin International book exposition 2014. In 2016 the new album: Sfarinati di Cerali per l'alimentazione umana producted by Hopetone Records, and presented with a live performance of one hour trasmitted by the third channel of the national RAI radio in trasmission La stanza della musica entirely dedicated to Musica ex Machina. In 2018 the new album BURP, by Hopetone Records, start with a tour that touched Forma e Poesia nel Jazz festival, Punto di Vista Festival, Aspettando l'Inverno Festival, Storie di Volti e Silenzi Festival e la XIV giornata del Contemporaneo in Milan.
