My name is Giuliano Vangelista, I have been playing keyboards since I was 12. My reference artists are Jon Lord, George Duke, Richard Wright, Rick Wakeman, Oscar Peterson, Vangelis, Dave Brubeck, Brad Mehldau. I published two albums, I also collaborate with local recording studios (Fluente Records and others).
I love music since forever, my aim is to make music that makes the listener travel with imagination. Music has to take you by arm and bring you in worlds never known.
My favourite music genres are '70s rock, jazz-rock (fusion), funky, but also jazz, blues, and pop (to some extent).
I published two albums, one with Sinking Soul band (metal) and one as soloist under the nickname Euler's Number (prog rock).
I also collaborate with local recording studios (Fluente Records and others).
I play with saxophonist Luca Donini and bass player Mario Marcassa in Luca Donini Nextgeneration band (fusion), besides to many other bands.
