piano (piano, composition, actor)
the debut as "young chansonnier" in 1997, and
after numerous theatrical production, the known performer and Italian composer Nicola
Vicidomini has been motor and protagonist of experimental, international productions.
From the album "Mi dň un tono", recorded in 2005
and co-produced by the agency MMS in Berlin with the partecipation of the pianist
Giacomo Aula, the saxophonist
and the bass-player
Aldo Vigorito, to the collection of text for the theatre "La radio
altamente specifica" (Ibiskos Editrice Risolo - Florence -
2006) volume with Cd, with preface from Cochi Ponzoni.
Nicola Vicidomini develops in a subtle and intelligent way the theme of the free
word and the free, but motivated, association of ideas, through symbolism that concerns
our society. Perhaps the public to which he turns will remain perplexed, as it happened
to me and Renato, when many years ago told our apparent nonsense(...)

the Album "Electronic Love" to "Scendi Vittorio Scendi", published May 27th
2008, for which he makes use of the collaboration
of Mario Zonta, of The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Arts (New York)
and of the inseparable
I have had the fortune to listen "Scendi Vittorio Scendi", the new album of Nicola
Vicidomini. It is not easy to give a name to the multiform, complex, coloured and
fascinating art that characterizes this young author from the sure and eclectic
Listening to his texts with headphones means a psychedelic trip through emotions,
cultures, overlaps of languages and sounds from which it seems, then, difficult
to return to the reality. A trip inside a crazy, amazing kaleidoscope. To the bright
colours it is added the "white" and "the black". At times the blinding white and
sometime the black of the dark of the jungle. All the colours of Warhol: from the
red and violet to the silver grey. (...)
But is also a meddler giving way to the discovery of the unknown part of ourselves
and make the memory resurface a world that, also known, we had removed, distracted
by the flatness of the everybody life or metropolitana (subway) and vulgarly considered
"glamour": the din of the horses, the rattle of the tram, the domestic scenes, the
unintentional humour of the banal situations, the roughish serenades. But what is
really important is that he doesn't deny his cultural, musical or ethnologic origins,
he mixes them and overcomes them, he remembers them, he forgets them till to be
a hyperrealist minstrel and he reaches an expressive style which is only his own.
A particular song, "Casa Ina Casa", tells you about someone who can look at... for.
Contaminating styles, inventing sonority and elaborated poetry and desecration,
Vicidomini simply gives us feeling... It is very more...
Andy would have loved him. Andy was always right.

teacher, quartet's leader B Project (Vicidomini, Zurzolo, Vigorito, Fasano),
he exhibits himself in duo for varied happening and show with the famous Italian
humorist Mario Marenco, who directed in "Gli americani sono meglio" with Marenco
believe that Nicola Vicidomini makes some interesting things. He is one who believes
in the quality. He writes some unusual things as animals with synthetic fur… a mixture
of "chiavica" and "lyricism"
Mario Marenco - from an interview – October 2006
Nicola Vicidomini has performed in remarkable Italian and foreigner clubs
and has been "guest" to Musical and Theatrical Manifestations of notorious importance
with live programmes and interventions through some important National Italian radio
and TV broadcasting. He has composed music for films and he has taken care of the
artistic direction of "Salvaguardia Testa Festival 2007"
in Rome, to which he also participated with the pičce "Kermesse" written with the
Italian humorist and actor Felice Andreasi. The work and the collaboration with
Michele Monetta (ICRA "International Center of Research on the actor" and National
Academy of Dramatic Art Silvio D'Amico) have flowed in "Dada: mise en espace" (Tzara,
Breton, Picabia) (2005), in a interpretation
about "The Lesson" of Eugene Jonesco (2006),
that Vicidomini has also proposed in his "Del Cabaret solo la polvere" (2007),
and in the effective riproposition of "La cimice" di Majakovskij (2007).
Nicola is a gestural writing but not pantomimic, a mute word in an acoustic movement
(…) An athletic theatre in which one sings, marks the rhythm and singsongs a sort
of indecent nonsense rhyme for a decent public who has standardized tastes.
Michele Monetta – 2005
He also shared the scene with the Italian popular comic Giorgio Bracardi
The association with the pianist Giacomo Aula has given life to the
European tournče "Liric Interplay", of and Vicidomini and Aula, symbiotic excursus
between musicality of the verse and great international jazz.
