Watch the Sunrise With Giorgia Angiuli’s Set From Monopoli
You can't help but stare in amazement at this mesmerizingly beautiful live set from Giorgia Angiuli. Produced by PhEST – The International Festival of Photography and Arts - and the Municipality of Monopoli, Turning The Dawn was a performance that took place in Angiuli’s native town.
It was a particularly special event for Angiuli as Monopoli is where her mother spent her childhood in the 60s. Angiuli chose to dedicate the live stream to her memory.
The set unfolds as dawn breaks across the Adriatic Sea. For Angiuli, "Dawn symbolizes a new beginning, especially during these dark times. Dawn gives a sense of hope to the cultural industry."
Her live improvisation on a Moog synthesizer, a steel tongue drum, and an array of other instruments, combined with enchanting vocals and hypnotic drum patterns, make this a performance that you can’t take your eyes off.
Born in Puglia, Italy, Angiuli is a classically-trained musician, composer, and multi-instrumentalist. She developed a passion for electronic music early in life, later creating tracks that move between techno, house, and pop. Her idiosyncratic sound comes from a unique blend of elements, blending toy instruments, theremins, keyboards, drum pads, and her own voice, to give her music a dreamy aura.
Angiuli has graced the decks at some of the world’s most famous clubs. From Berghain in Berlin to Output in New York, Rex in Paris, Oval Space in London, and beyond. She’s seized the attention of festival crowds at Extrema Outdoor in Belgium, Electrowave in Florence, Fusion in Lärz, and more. Her 2018 debut album, In a Pink Bubble, was met with critical acclaim worldwide.
Angiuli recently launched a contest on her Instagram where you can win free tickets to some of her upcoming shows. Catch her this Friday at Time Warp Brazil 2022, Ritter Butzke in Berlin this June, and Amnesia for Paradise Ibiza this September.
