Oskar Boldre

Living in: Locarno, Italy.

Oskar Boldre was born as a self-taught and approached music as a very young guitarist / singer in progressive rock bands in the Milanese "cellars" starting in 1984. Later he went through free / folk and afro / jazz experiences as a singer-percussionist, bassist and composer. In the 5 years lived as a farmer in the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines he discovered the strength of the voice instrument and the polyrhythmias of the body. Then he devoted himself to studying and deepening the Overtonic song with Bernard Jaeger (CH / D). Since 1996 he has directed the polyphonic choirs ( Goccia di Voci ) and vocal ensembles ( Ancore d'Aria), still active in the Insubric region. He has collaborated with various theater companies as a vocal trainer, actor and composer (ATIR Milan, Teatro due Mondi Faenza, Teatro dei Fauni Locarno).

Since 2004 he has been the artistic director of the international festival Voci Audaciin the Locarno area. Numerous collaborations as a vocalist among which we remember the recordings with the jazz group of Ivo Antognini, in the vocal project One More Language by Francesco Forges, in a duo with the vocalist Albert Hera, in a duo with the bass clarinetist Simone Mauri and in the project "Nel Cuore della Voce" with Anna Oxa. He currently works with Luisa Cottifogli, sings in duo with bass clarinetist Simone Mauri and with jazz and saxophonist singer Thomas Achermann.

Since 2002 he has also proposed himself in solo concerts "Voce Danzante con Respiro" in which he continues to deepen experimental techniques (sonic singing, vocal percussions, inspired overtones ...) and the use of the voice that communicates emotions released from languages. Since 2000, he has been teaching ensemble vocal improvisationin Switzerland, Italy and Germany and wrote the "Giocando la Voce" method .
