He works with performances, sound installations and recorded works and in the last three years he has been collaborating through selected projects with Massimo Bartolini, Nico Vascellari, Philippe Petit, Fabrizio Modenese Palumbo, Francisco Lopez, Christina Kubisch, Seth Cluett, Yannick Franck and others.

He is a curator/executive producer of the independent music label Radical Matters - Editions Label with the new series "Metasound" and he his the curator of the project AEDO "Curatorial and Sound Practice" to investigate the dimension between music and contemporary art.

The work of Claudio Rocchetti is a deep plunge into thick sound, investigating its innermost workings. Using a variety of devices such as turntables, audio cassettes, samplers, radios, and microphones, often incorporating other objects and traditional instruments, Berlin-based Rocchetti builds compelling structures that employ sound as sheer matter, mass, and impact. "I have a very direct approach to sound, trying to act on instruments and devices," he says.
