Celestino Telera: composer, singer, musician, clown, artist.
I started writing music at the age of 15. Since then I worked with an italian theatre company called Bottega degli Apocrifi composing, arranging or being a session musician for some of their shows until 2011. We made music for performances working directly with performers in action and being part physically of the scene during the performances.
I have my own music projects:
www.lastfm.com/music/Celestino+Telera . My new one is called Huevo https://www.facebook.com/huevomusic .
I sing and play bass guitar, guitar, tin and penny whistles, kazoo, cajon, keyboard.
I've been developing my skills in the physical theatre starting from clowning; I studied with the clown and artists Fraser Hooper, Holly Stoppit, Gerry Flanagan; I'm currently part of the local clown company The Original Spinners.
I also make drawings, I have an abstract and surreal approach in making this; I mainly focus on the contrast between delicate and sharp figures, soft and strong use of colours.
