Born in 1974, Giuseppe Ielasi
lives near Milan since 1990.
He started playing guitar in 1988, and worked for many years in the area of 'improvised music' (long term collaborations with Renato Rinaldi in the duo Oreledigneur, Alessandro Bosetti, Michel Doneda, Ingar Zach, Dean Roberts).
He has performed live with Taku Sugimoto, Jerome Noetinger, Mark Wastell, Martin Siewert, Nmperign, Brandon Labelle, Nikos Veliotis, Gert-Jan Prins, Phill Niblock, Oren Ambarchi, Thomas Ankersmit and many others.
In recent years his main interest has been in site-specific solo performances, still using guitars as primary sound sources but integrating microphones and multi-channel speaker systems in order to create complex networks for sound diffusion in relationship to space. In 1998 he founded the "Fringes recordings" label.

Radio Works:
"La Missione" a radio-play by Heiner Muller, Radio RAI 1999.
"Social Music", project coordinated by Brandon Labelle, with Minoru Sato, Achim Wollscheid, Michel Henritzi, ORF Kunstradio Wien 2001.
