Anthony Storniolo (b.1986, Los Angeles) is a percussionist, composer, and video artist based in Los Angeles. His percussive endeavors have been focused on merging western orchestral percussion and many different world music traditions into a style uniquely his own. Many of his compositions are based on psychoacoustic experiments utilizing mixed chamber ensembles and analog electronics. The video art Anthony creates utilizes analog video synthesis and feedback techniques. Anthony co-directs The Mortuary, a performance lab in LA.
His interdisciplinary collaborations rely on each medium working intimately with one another to create a holistic multimedia ritual. Through challenging conventional boundaries of disciplinary approach and Western social myths, he proposes a horizontal forum for human connection. His experimentation is grounded in his faith in the potential energy of shared experiences to transform us.
