MANUEL CHIEREGATO

Nato a Bolzano il 5 giugno 1978, compositore. Ha studiato privatamente violino e poi pianoforte e composizione presso il Conservatorio di Bolzano.
È coautore di Ο ΑΦΡΟ∆ΙΤΑΣ ΚΑΠΟΣ (Il Giardino di Afrodite), una sceneggiatura non narrativa multilingue del 1996, rivista nel 2007 e nel 2008 e tornata ad essere oggetto di approfondimento nel 2020, scritta per la realizzazione di 13 video opere dadaiste interdipendenti, sviluppata su una sua idea originale, caratterizzata da sperimentalismo e molteplici riferimenti figurativi, letterari e cinematografici.
Impegnato nella composizione musicale sin dai primi anni '90, tra il 2017 e il 2020 ha composto e pubblicato circa 200 ore di musica nell'ambito del progetto multimediale GARDENS, ispirato a un libro del 2000 di Duccio Demetrio, in cui sono confluiti anche altri suoi progetti precedenti, come DRAFTS, CATHEDRALS e GREAT WATERS.
Collabora con artisti italiani come Severiano Paoli (contrabbassista), Vittorio Gazzera (videoartista), Nadia Prousch (flauto dolce), Mara Palumbo (organista), Angelo Turchi e Agnese M. Garufi (sassofonisti), Guido Picariello e Francesca Chiofalo (pianisti), Gianluca Pavone e Natalia Michelozzi (ballerini) e con artisti da tutto il mondo come Tanja von Arx e Péter Földesi (flautisti), Nadja Haas (ballerina), Jutta Pryor (videoartista) e molti altri ancora.
La sua musica è stata in mostra ad Aosta (2018), Milano (compare nel catalogo MEMORIE ABBANDONATE di CIRCUITI DINAMICI, 2018) e Torino (Mostra Internazionale ART AWAKENS THE SOUL - ИСКУССТВО ПРОБУЖДАЕТ ДУШУ presso la sala espositiva della Regione Piemonte, 2019).
È ideatore, autore e conduttore di GARDENS - SENTIERI SONORI DI UN PROGETTO MULTIMEDIALE, rubrica multilingue in cui descrive nel dettaglio lo sviluppo del progetto GARDENS, e delle rubriche d'arte PAESANA ART EXPO 2020 e VALLEXPO per la web TV Valle PRO TV.
