Synolon

Synolon , [from gr. σύνολον, comp. by σύν «with» and ὅλος «everything»] merges the love for songs, free improvisation, classical, and jazz music. That’s ‘how’ and ‘why’ Gabriele and Francesco decided to sum their notes in SYNOLON.

At a time when the languages of music are blurring, Gabriele and Francesco decided to create a project where they could unite the worlds they love.
Acoustic sounds that blend with electronic and modern sounds; jazz/folk accompaniments that lead to moments of pure improvisation. This is SYNOLON.
Both composers and instrumentalists, in SYNOLON they have succeeded in representing their different souls.

 
Gabriele di Franco

Gabriele di Franco

Gabriele di Franco, born in Italy and currently residing in Brussels is a European composer, arranger, and guitarist.

He defines himself as an ambiguous composer and guitar player; living that undefined space between jazz, classical, and world music, focusing on deepness and consciousness in the process of making choices, or in other words: composing.
