Memory9 a.k.a. Gadi Sassoon is a Milan-based producer who combines a virtuosic control of live electronics with organic musicianship to create truly intriguing music, influenced by the sounds of Modeselektor, Aphex Twin and Squarepusher as well as jazz and punk rock.
A largely self-taught musician, he started performing at the age of 15 in the Italian underground, and shortly after achieved a scholarship to the Berklee College of Music on the grounds of his outstanding talent. He then moved to the USA for two years to immerse himself in jazz and electronic music. The years that followed were spent performing many memorable shows across North America and Europe, eventually landing him in London, where he started playing regularly at clubs and festivals. A residency with Soundcrash established his reputation as a high-calibre performer through his unique setups – from solo work with peculiar machines and homemade software to a full live setup with two drum kits, live electronics and guitar. While in London, he also undertook research in sound art at Middlesex University.
