Sebastián D'Amore


Buenos Aires, 1977.

He developed an intense drawing activity since childhood. He started his art studies during this period at Lilian Cundom workshop in Resistencia, Chaco. Once older, back in Buenos Aires and after a several years' interregnum (during his coming of age period) he resumed his artistic activity at the MEEBA workshop along with Verónica Soncini as his teacher, and from then on the experience was not only focused on drawing but also in pictorial. Shortly after, he began taking lessons at  the Escuela Nacional de Bellas Artes Prilidiano Pueyrredón, where he would continue and later would come back with the Profesor Nacional de Pintura degree, with an average of 10 (ten) during the first five years in the pictorial subject. His forays into salons and contests have been unfortunately scarce, partly because of his reluctance to face artistic activity as a serious career. However, his works have been seen in various exhibitions in unknown cultural spaces of the Buenos Aires city and province.

His musical activity has its germinal moment in the encounter with an old and abandoned Creole guitar that had belonged to his mother. From then on, the poor self-taught learning (if it can be called like that) and the spasmodic compositional activity began to take shape slowly and to be recorded in cassettes. Years later, he decides to take private lessons with the teacher Lucas Di Giorno and begins to achieve the focus and containment that he needed so much. At the same time, it inaugurates its first and overflowing sonic explorations together within Z&D Core Duo, a passing of psychedelic nonsense. On the solo plane he faces, on the one hand, Lémur, individual project / virtual band of home studio recordings, in which he gives free rein to his matured compositional talent; and more recently The Mazorca Proiect, improvisational ranting that makes abuse of varied loops and self-oscillations. In the collective works he also integrates along with Guillermo Novelli and Mark E. Herr, Miríada, free improvisation ramshackle noise group, featuring in a few live performances.
