Giorgio Ferrero and Rodolfo Mongitore, composers and producers, authors of music for film, sound installations and songs, are Minus & Plus. They are co-founders of the multidisciplinary creative studio MYBOSSWAS, based in Turin.
They exhibited musical and sound works at the MAXXI in Rome, at the Museo del Novecento in Milan, at the biennial in Bordeaux and in Lisbon, at Palazzo Madama in Turin. They made music for the cinema, for the theater and for the narrative of authors such as Daniele Gaglianone, the De Serio brothers, Stephen Fingleton and Paolo Giordano. They signed the music and sound of films selected for the international competition at the Venice Film Festival, at the Locarno Film Festival, at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York, at the Rome Film Festival, at the Edinbourgh and Sydney international film festivals. In 2013 they released the first album of music for images “Interferenze”, codirect and composed the soundtrack for the film ‘Riverbero’ (in competition at the Rome Film Festival, at the Glasgow Film Festival and at the Brooklyn Film Festival).
Many international brands such as Nike, Valentino, Cassina, Barilla, Condé Nast chose them to compose music for their commercials. Alfa Romeo chose the two composers to realize the sound identity of the new cars launched in 2016.
In 2016 Il Corriere della Sera exclusively publishes the album ‘Black and Silver’ based on the music composed for the performance conceived for the launch of Paolo Giordano’s latest novel.
They have performed in festivals such as Traffic, Club to Club, Mtv Brand New Arts, Sala dei 500 at Lingotto, at Elfo Puccini Theater, at the Guido Monzani forum in Modena, in the Santa Maria Church in Chiavica di Verona and accompanied live actresses like Alba Rohrwacher (awarded in Cannes Film Festival) and Isabella Ragonese.
Giorgio Ferrero presented at the 74th Venice Film Festival his first feature film ‘Beautiful Things’, for which he signed screenwriting, direction and music. The film won the award for Best Italian Film according to the young under 26 jury and “the best first feature award” at Cph:Dox in Copenhagen. In Venice he also presented his first short film in virtual reality Denoise, made during the shooting of the feature film. With Federico Biasin (co-director and director of photography of Beautiful Things, Denoise and Riverbero) and Rodolfo Mongitore (co-author of the soundtracks) he lead the multidisciplinary studio MYBOSSWAS in Turin.
