Trinosophes says
Guitarist Giacomo Fiore was born in Genova, Italy, in 1983. Following a move to San Francisco to study at the San Francisco Conservatory (where he now teaches), Fiore's work as a guitarist has primarily been in American experimental music, with an emphasis on just intonation and micro-tonal tunings.

Fiore has published articles in TEMPO and the Journal of the Society for American Music, and is currently preparing his fourth solo recording for release thanks to a grant from New Music USA. Currently he lectures on a broad range of historical and practical topics at the San Francisco Conservatory, the University of San Francisco, California State University Monterey Bay, and UCSC.

“The tones and drones that arise from [the guitar’s] interaction with the algorithm have the feel of an alap in Indian classical music, slow and atmospheric massaging of sounds in preparation for a fiery electric raga
——The Wire

“Fiore’s performance holds an impeccable balance between warmth and technical discipline, letting tiny traces of his identity twist into the fabric of composer intention.”
——ATTN Magazine

“Scenes from Nek Chand [...] was given an inspired performance by Fiore, who brought appropriate character to each movement: sensitive introspection for “Leaning Lady,” mercurial dancelike energy for “Rock Garden,” and an admirable flexibility for “Sinuous Arcade With Swings in the Arches.””
——San Francisco Classical Voice

“His solo contribution is without a doubt and easily the strongest of the evening…sensual are his melodies, beauty over virtuosity, and that’s certainly the strongest point of this young guitarist who’s just on his way, certainly not at the end of his musical journey.”
