I am a theoretical physicist and musician based in Helsinki (Finland). My Ph.D. thesis focused on particle cosmology, in particular on supergravity and supersymmetric dark matter, from which the name “Dark Matter Guitar”. Here are some of my papers: Academia.edu.
As a physicist I am affiliated with Tallinn University of Technology (TTU), Estonia. I am interested in theoretical models for energy efficient buildings, applications of heat transfer, thermomechanical phenomena in soft matter and in cosmological applications of Particle Physics, phenomenology of Supergravity, supersymmetric Dark Matter.
I started playing the guitar in September 1994, and through the years I have been active in many genres, such as progressive metal & rock, black & death metal, thrash metal, avant-garde/ambient music and basically anything I could find interesting. I play the electric guitar and the electric bass (both 4 and 5 strings, fretted and fretless).
Available as session musician and songwriter (for concerts and/or recordings), I also teach electric guitar, both in Helsinki and via Skype. Feel free to send me an email for more information at andrea.ferrantelli@gmail.com.
I am currently the guitarist of a new progressive rock band called Hypergravity, you find our music below (under our previous name, Silent Fusion).
I play also in experimental music projects like the free improvisation trio Static Continuum and the avant-garde project The KMP Projekt, both with [ówt krì].
As a solo project, in my “Rock Me Amadeus” I play classical music pieces (mostly the baroque and classical periods, i.e. Mozart, Vivaldi and Haydn) with electric guitar, over backing tracks which I record with my guitars. Below you find a video of a first live performance (still with an orchestra in the background), and the recording of my Mozart Medley, which I rearranged for a guitar ensemble.
Whether I am playing progressive metal, rock, classical or fusion, I adapt to the music genre, still maintaining my own style: “You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.” (Bruce Lee)
