Bio Ita

Alessandra Novaga is a Milan based guitarist. For years she has been exploring the possible territories in which her instrument can lead her. She has crossed the classical territories, in which she trained, graduating from the Musik Akademie in Basel, until reaching impalpable abstractions without placing limits on one or the other.

The sound, the meanings, the encounters and the narratives are the elements that guide her.


In addition to her solo projects, her collaborations currently see her often playing with Stefano Pilia, and with the trio of which she is co-founder, What We do When in Silence, together with Nicola Ratti and Enrico Malatesta. In recent years she has collaborated with Loren Connors, Elliot Sharp, Adrian Utley, Sandro Mussida, Kid Millions, Object Collection, Patrizia Oliva, Elena Kakaliagou.

Her music was published on Die Schachtel, Blume, Setola di Maiale, Coherent States, Long Song among the others.


She has played in festivals such as Donaueschinger Musiktage (DE), Himera Festivaali (FN), Angelica (Bologna) Festival dei Due Mondi (Spoleto), Cafè OTO (London) and ISSUE Project Room (New York).


She composes for the theater collaborating with Elena Russo Arman (Teatro dell'Elfo), with Phoebe Zeigeist, with Nicola Russo and with Invisibile Kollettivo.
