Nicola Ratti was born in 1978 in Milan. He started playing guitar in 1992 and has been Pin Pin Sugar guitarist, a math-jazz-rock trio, until the split of the band in early 2005.
Pin Pin Sugar had a great CD album out on Bar la Muerte / Megaplomb in 2003 and have successfully toured through Italy, France and Slovenia.
He began his solo career in 2002 with a self-released untitled CD-R that showcased his ability in creating tiny miniatures using guitar, voice, objects and electronics.
This long and beautiful EP was produced in collaboration with friends Giuseppe Ielasi and Jacopo Andreini, two of the best known and appreciated italian improvisers.
His first CD album was released in 2006 by Megaplomb.
