Mauro Sambo nació en Venecia en 1954 y ha vivido allí desde entonces. Estudió pintura en la Academia de Bellas Artes de Venecia. Su trabajo a menudo se extiende a ambos lados de la frontera que separa la música, escultura, dibujo, instalaciones y la performances. Entre las principales exposiciones en que ha sido parte, su participación en la XLIV Bienal de Venecia “Open 90” sin duda merece ser mencionada.

Él ejecuta instrumentos de viento, golpea pieles, tortura su contrabajo, y está interesado en jugar y manipular instrumentos electrónicos. Ha publicado varios discos, algunos como solista y en otros colaborando con músicos de todo el mundo.

Mauro Sambo was born in Venice in 1954 and has been living there since. He studied painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Venice. His work often straddles the fine lines that separate music, sculpture, drawing, installations and performances. Among the major exhibitions he has taken part in, his participation in the XLIV Venice Biennale “Open 90” certainly deserves to be mentioned.

He plays wind instruments, hits skins, tortures his double bass, and is interested in playing and manipulating electronic instruments. He has released several albums. In some he plays alone, in others he collaborates with musicians from all around the world.
