A personal path, an unique style drove Marco Colonna to become one of the most unique Italian musicians of his generation.
Born in 1978 in Rome, he’s active as multi-instrumentalist, composer, improviser and writer but in the last years he chose to dedicate himself to bass clarinet, to explore all the possibilities of this instrument, even playing two or three instruments simultaneously, inspired by the works of Roland Kirk, to whom is dedicated the Rashaan trio with Ettore Fioravanti and Eugenio Colombo.
Marco Colonna joined Roberto Ottaviano’s Eternal Love and recorded an album with Zeno De Rossi, Giovanni Maier and Alexander Hawkins, released on Dodici Lune label.He took part to Unit by Stefano Giust and Evan Parker, a concert and a record featuring Alberto Novello, Giorgio Pacorig, Martin Mayes, Patrizia Oliva and Michele Anelli, released via Setola di Maiale.
Marco Colonna is still active as writer and he was commissioned a book to be released by Blonk publishing in 2020, entitled “E mio padre mi disse che non ero normale – breve cronaca di un pensiero artistico indipendente”.
He’s working on new material for his ensemble, Noise Of Trouble and on new projects with Izumi Kimura, Fabrizio Spera and Alexander Hawkins.
