Silicon Veronica is
music tech performances
computers + human biological computation
Sergio Zacco's work on expressive musical execution, improvisation and live composition led to first experiments with drummers.
In 2019 the first EP 15 minutes live session have been released independently featuring Paolo Peruzzi on the drums. In this work music is composed in the moment together with the drummer as well as the arrangement, with pre-composed loops and live effects.
Sergio Zacco is also the founder of the software house Attacco which first created plug-in Virtual Controller is widely used in Silicon Veronica's live sets.

Silicon Nimali - Superstition (ChillHop cover)[LIVE]
Silicon Nimali è l'unione fra due progetti musicali: Silicon Veronica, musica elettronica eseguita e composta dal vivo e Nimali, quartetto jazz/neo-soul. Beat di suoni "vivi" dal vivo a sorreggere progressioni accordali jazzy di cover famose e pezzi originali. Silicon Nimali è l'incontro di frontiere musicali opposte. Alessandro Zara: voce, keys Sergio Zacco: drum beats, elettronica
In 2021 Silicon Veronica goes down to the streets with a new portable beat making setup.
It is made with a Raspberry Pi, an audio interface and a MIDI controller all powered by a power bank.
Inside the Raspberry I have programmed my sounds and interactions using Pure Data.
The music is all played live and is made similarly to the sampling process mainly used by hip hop producers in the 90's... but with some extra stuff from the most recent music styles.
The show is called Live Remixes.
