An Italian/Austrian Siren not definable, she’s a performer, an outsider artist of the independent scene developing a personal language.
NicoNote is an artistic alias created by Nicoletta Magalotti in 1996.
She has developed a personal language between music and performance, creating a mobile and interdependent work group. Acting in multiple territories related to theater, music, installations, clubbing, experimenting different languages of live performance. She has toured music and theater in Italy and Europe, Canada, Argentina, Brazil.
In the 80s she was the voice of the Italian new wave band Violet Eves, playing in Italy, France, Swiss, Austria and Greece ( La Cigale, Printemps de Bourges, Transmusicales, U4, Biennale Mediterraneum) - released by the independent Florentine Label IRA Records together with Litfiba, Diaframma, Moda, Underground Life. The first album of the band Incidental Glance, was distribuited by Philips Japan in 1986.
A legendary voice of a generation, NicoNote represents the universe between music and performance. Since the late 80s she has been an interpreter and a singer able to cover a waste range from Schumann to Suicide, from Trad Jazz to House 4/4 club sounds. As an actress and performer she has often been directed by Romeo Castellucci / Socìetas Raffaello Sanzio. A huge success was her European tour Orestea, in which she palys Cassandra, an epic drama from the ancient Greece directed by Romeo Castellucci. NicoNote is constantly engaged in different fields of art: in the world of music, performance art, clubbing and entertainment, performing in important festivals, art galleries and foundations like the Foundation Cartier for Contemporary Art in Paris, where she was invited at Le Soirèe Nomades.
In the 90's She created together with the legendary dj David Love Calò a privèe-installation (inside the roaring disco Cocoricò) the Morphine, a place that became a symbol of an interesting italian Clubbing season 1994-2006. The creative synergy will lead to the realisation of unconventional events with a strong media impact.
