Francesco Zedde is an Italian artist residing in Utrecht, the Netherlands. He was trained in classical guitar and drums during his teenage years, and he later transitioned into sound design and audio technologies. Francesco's creative endeavors encompass an array of mediums, including code, circuits, images, and sounds. His artistic output takes on various forms; in addition to an extensive live performance portfolio, he undertakes the curation of events, production of records, composition of soundtracks, facilitation of workshops, creation of machines and instruments, development of software, and realization of installations.

Since 2011, Francesco has actively participated in 20 projects or bands, released nine solo albums, contributed to over 30 records, and held about 600 concerts across 19 different countries. Much of his musical work is attributed to two primary aliases: "Tacet Tacet Tacet," a live electronics audio/visual project inspired by modern experimental and dark ambient music, and "Tonto," a post-punk solo endeavor characterized by drumset, electronics, and vocals. Francesco's music has been released by more than 20 labels, including Artetetra, Selva Elettrica, Edwood, Grandine, Attenuation Circuit, and Econore.

Furthermore, Francesco is the founder and organizer of the Discomfort Dispatch concert series, an initiative that showcases electronic and free improvised music festivals, an undertaking he has been devoted to since 2017.
