Dario Calderone studied doublebass with Massimo Giorgi, Franco Petracchi and has been one of the few pupils of Stefano Scodanibbio. He is advocating new music since almost 20 years, having performed hundreds of new compositions for solo, chamber music and ensemble in the major festivals of the world. His most interesting solo projects involve a rendering of the famous Voyage that never ends of Stefano Scodanibbio, a strict collaboration with Giorgio Netti on UR, 2 rites for solo doublebass, and a specific research in micro-amplification for the live realization of his own compositions for doublebass. From 2009 to 2019 has been the bass player of the Nieuw Ensemble in Amsterdam. He is member of Nieuw Amsterdams Peil, and of MAZE, an ensemble for exploratory music based in Amsterdam, dealing with radical experimentations, medias, interactive scores and conceptual composition. He has recorded a number of CDs, but the one he likes most is the one where he put together all the music by James Tenney that one could play on a bass: James Tenney: Bass works, Hat Hut Records. Dario Calderone plays on a Chanot from the beginning of XIX century and on a new 5 string bass by Kanzian&Traunsteiner master Luthiers in Vienna.
