Literaturtreffen - Giuliano Musio


Humorvoll abgründig erzählt Giuliano Musio von der fatalen Macht der Erinnerung. Er beschreibt den Verfall einer Familie in Gestalt einer literarischen Vorabendserie und verbindet gekonnt Hochliteratur mit Unterhaltungskultur; dabei führt er ganz nebenbei vor Augen, wie unsicher Erinnerung und Wahrheit sind und wie die Suche nach beidem eine Familie zerstören kann.


Giuliano Musio hat Germanistik und Anglistik studiert und wurde für seine Texte mehrfach ausgezeichnet. Weil er das Surren von Kaffeemaschinen und grammatische Phänomene wie das Zustandspassiv mag, arbeitete er als Kellner und ist heute als Korrektor bei der NZZ tätig. Sein Debütroman »Scheinwerfen« erschien 2015 im °luftschacht-Verlag.

Die Brüder Samuel und Silvan spielen auf ihren zwei Gitarren Eigenkompositionen, die sich ins Ohr graben.

Ihre Stücke erinnern an Al Di Meola, Kolbe-Illenberger und präsentieren sich in einem Pop-Gewand. Dennoch versuchen sie mit ihrem jugendlichen Charme und Talent die starren Grenzen klassischer Musik und Jazz aufzulösen.
