Alessandro—stage name Phephra. I'm a Milan based visual designer, illustrator, music composer, producer and compulsive collector of vintage Japanese pop records.
I completed my master degree in Communication Design at Politecnico di Milano in 2020 with a thesis about the linguistic paradigms of video game music, scoring a second place in 2021 Archivio Videoludico Award for the best game-related thesis.
In 2022 I self-released my first EP Insulated Works, recorded during the 2020 lockdown. In 2023 I founded the video game collective Villa Delfina with my friend and fellow visual artist Nicolò Marchetti, taking care of the soundtrack and sound design of our first game.
I'm currently working full time as a Visual Designer in 150UP and as adjunct professor in the Media Design department at IED Milano.
