Statement

In my work, I investigate the notions of presence, silence, and impermanence, encouraging various levels of experience, engagement, and contemplation. My research often takes on an elusive character, being concerned with the dual nature of sound and how time, and slow, natural processes act on perception. Inviting people to heighten their relationship with unpredictability, I seek to create an expanded experience in which participants question their control over reality. My practice reveals an inner discipline which goes beyond the scope of rational coordinates, whilst addressing everyday actions and small things.

Totally immersive, spectral gamelan minimalism operating at the limits of perception. Imagine the intro to Photek’s Ni - Ten - Ichi - Ryu frozen and zoomed in x 100. We recommend you dive in deep...

Interstitial Spaces — Best of 2014: Music For Bending Light And Stopping Time
Headphone Commute

[...] we found ourselves paying more attention to the many nuances of Interstitial Spaces [...] Perletta’s work is very congruent and structured, full of its own inner grace.
Aurelio Cianciotta, Neural

Fabio Perletta [...] sintetizza un'efficace visione d'insieme attraverso una concatenazione di elementi materici, silenzi e trasparenze, riuscendo a trasmettere appieno il senso di questo incontro fra sacro e suono.
Massimiliano Busti, Blow Up Magazine

Meditative, elemental, and full of care, with slight frequencies just on the edge of perception, Ichinen’s tone poems prove Fabio Perletta an artist to watch. 
Joseph Sannicandro, A Closer Listen

Musique Concrète for the mind?
Peter Van Cooten, Ambientblog

The notes fade, but they don’t necessarily stop. They echo into infinity.
James Catchpole, A Closer Listen

Fabio Perletta il suono lo produce, lo comprime, lo interroga costringendo lo spettatore a porsi in ascolto, a spostarsi nello spazio, cercando di catturare frequenze inudibili incastrate in centinaia di combinazioni che si autogenerano.
Marta Silvi, Artribune

L’analisi percettiva condotta da Fabio Perletta sulle strutture microscopiche del suono costituisce uno dei percorsi in assoluto più interessanti nel composito panorama di indagine estetica legato al rapporto tra arte, scienza e suono.
Leandro Pisano, Blow Up Magazine

Addensandosi e disaggregandosi intorno al grado zero della materia sonora, questi suoni disegnano traiettorie dissonanti e frantumate nello spazio dell’ascolto, che diventa lo scenario acustico di un’esperienza intensa e immersiva.
Leandro Pisano, Blow Up Magazine

[...] Ma 間 accresce ulteriormente il senso di una poetica sonora che a ragione può definirsi essenziale in senso etimologico: il tempo infinito del verbo ‘essere’ come spazio ipotetico di una costante indeterminazione.
Michele Palozzo, Esoteros

[...] the pair produced an admirable example of psychoacoustic exploration able to generate stimulating suggestions while eliciting the kind of retroactive synthesis performed by the brain in the presence of a given combination of sounds.
Massimo Ricci, Touching Extremes

For such a quiet album, “Interstitial Spaces” has an awful lot to say about how to make great ambient electronic music […] Listen and learn.
Nathan Thomas, Fluid Radio

Interstitial Spaces è un gioiello che dimostra una volta di più l'abilità di Perletta a trasformare il suono in materia d'indagine [...] Magistrale. 
Matteo Meda, OndaRock

A musical satori […] those rich, sonic and timbral sonorities offer an a-temporal dreamtime travel, irresistibly attractive and sensory fundamental. An indispensable listening experience which admits a natural affinity with […] the electromagnetic experiments of Christina Kubitsch.
Philippe Blache, Igloo Magazine

Eargasm introspection, and self-healing.
Paolo Miceli, Komakino 'Zine
