Born in Mendrisio in 1979, Zeno Gabaglio starts his cello study at the age of eight. In 2000 he graduates in pedagogy of music at the Conservatorio della Svizzera italiana di Lugano and in 2004 he obtains a Bachelor in philosophy at the Università degli Studi di Firenze, with a thesis in musical aesthetic. In 2007 he obtains the Konzertdiplom in freie Improvisation at the Musikakademie Basel. In the past few years, his work has been focusing on contemporary music: as an interpreter of new music, as a composer of personal music pieces and as an improviser. He particularly concentrates on the development of the different electroacoustic possibilities on cello.
