musical artist :: Bad Sector
Massimo Magrini was born in Lucca (Tuscany, I) in 1966. He had a long degree in Computer Science in Pisa University, with a thesis on musical applications of the Object Oriented paradigm. Then, he collaborated with CNUCE/CNR (an Institute of the National Research Council in Pisa) for some years, building hardware and software for computer music performances. With these special devices, he performed in several festivals in Italy and foreign countries (Spain, Greece, Cuba, etc.) During late 80s, he played in a local electronic band (Jesus Blood), using self built analog and digital synthesizers. In 1992 he created his personal project, trying to discover dark sonic areas between ambient, noise, and minimal music. Massimo Magrini´s first CD, Ampos, had a great response from international listeners, and presented Bad Sector to the electronic underground scene.
Bad Sector music has been presented live in several European countries.
