Fabio Perletta (born July 31, 1984), also known in his recordings and performances as Øe, is a sound artist and graphic designer based in Roseto degli Abruzzi, Italy. He has a BA in Film Studies at the University of Rome La Sapienza, writing a thesis entitled “Electronic sound between cinema and contemporary forms of audiovisual”. In this work he referred to the works of Bill Viola, Ryoji Ikeda, Chris Cunningham and David Lynch, focusing on the most recent theories about human perception, as a result of Semir Zeki’s neuroaesthetics perspective. Fabio consequentially graduated with honors in Electronic Music at the Italian Institute for Music Technology (IITM), where he developed a multichannel (quadraphonic) sound environment that consists in an underwater landscape.
His works include electronic music, video, art installations, graphic and sound design for exhibitions. Described as trascendental and breezy architectures, celestial humming and luminescent hypnosis, his music is aimed to research the beauty into imperfection. Widely influenced by physical phenomena, human perception and psychology, his sound focuses on representing and discovering the sound of the invisible, mixing asynchronous loops and microsounds. Perletta’s music marks an aesthetics formed of digital errors, sound fragments, fragile sound paths and abstract colours, revealing a contemplative way of experiencing new emotions in the digital era and the fragmentation of nature through technology.
He is also known for the founding of the Farmacia901 record label and his membership of the AIPS network.
