The Francesco Artusato Project

Explosive technicality combined with musical taste and an energetic sense of phrase is the main emphasis behind the Chaos and The Primordial album. This effort is composed of 10 tracks of all instrumental music that explore the rock/metal language in singular ways through the artistic and innovative mind of Berklee College of Music graduate Francesco Artusato. This debut solo effort showcases Artusato's unparallel guitar prowess and songwritingability as he handles all of the album's arrangements and instrumentation.

Explosive technicality combined with musical taste and an energetic sense of phrase is the main emphasis behind the Chaos and The Primordial album. This effort is composed of 10 tracks of all instrumental music that explore the rock/metal language in singular ways through the artistic and innovative mind of Berklee College of Music graduate Francesco Artusato. This debut solo effort showcases Artusato's unparallel guitar prowess and songwritingability as he handles all of the album's arrangements and instrumentation. Throughout 10 truly diverse tracks he takes the listener on an all encompassing musical journey and the depth and diversity in which he does so is astonishing.

Artusato was born in Italy and is a product of a very musical family. He started playing saxophone at the age of 14 and switched to guitar when he was 19. After graduating Suma Cum Laude from Berklee College of Music in 2006, he relocated to Los Angeles where he has been busy with recording, touring and teaching. His most notable accomplishment to date was being invited back to Boston in 2008 to perform 1st electric guitar for Vuk Kulenovic's "Electric Symphony", a 70 minute massive symphony, sharing the stage with such renowned musicians as Kenwood Dennard on drums (Miles Davis, Sting, Chick Corea) and conducted by Tibor Pusztai.

Chaos and the Primordial is the result of the experiences, studies, thoughts and musical moments that shaped Artusato's sound and vision throughout these years. This album was written, produced and engineered by Artusato andmixed and mastered by Ben Cohen at Sky Blue Studios.

Artusato currently plays guitar for the Nuclear Blast Records recording artist All Shall Perish while also continuing to work with a variety of composers and songwriters on other projects. In addition to all this, he contributes material to the Guitar Messenger website with his "Technical Difficulties" column.

Make no mistake, Francesco Artusato is a force to be reckoned with and will soon be mentioned with the likes of Jason Becker, Marty Friedman, John Petrucci and Jeff Loomis, among other guitar heroes. « hide
