Italian artist Mauro Sambo (born 1954 in Venice) straddles the fine lines that separate music, sculpture, drawing, installations and live performances. He plays wind instruments, hits skins, tortures his double bass, and is interested in playing and manipulating electronic instruments. He has released several albums, in some he plays alone, in others he collaborates with musicians from all around the world.
At the VENICE INTERNATIONAL PERFORMANCE ART WEEK 2016, Sambo presents the installation and live performance Conversation (a John Coltrane) (1997). Five musicians improvise in an intuitive conversation while metal cages are being built around them.
