Shapednoise began experimenting with sound design and industrial techno while studying audio engineering at SAE Institute in Milan. In 2011, he moved to Berlin and founded the Repitch label with Ascion and D. Carbone.

Both independent and collaborative Shapednoise productions are hybrid creatures, containing the genetic imprints of cyberpunk, harsh noise, vintage electronica, and EBM. In 2012, he began collaborating with enigmatic producer Violet Poison as Violetshaped. Their shuddering, circuitous sound, inspired by the scores of 60s and 70s horror films from Shapednoise’s native Italy, both references and has been remixed by likeminded artists such as Kangding Ray and Roly Porter.

March 2013 saw the pair's self-titled debut on the wax-only Violet Poison imprint, as well as a solo debut on limited-edition cassette from Dominick Fernow’s (aka Prurient/Vatican Shadow) Hospital Productions. Shapednoise also released his Until Humans Wake Us 12" on Opal Tapes later that year.

In 2014, Shapednoise premiered a new audiovisual project, "Metaphysical", together with visual artist sYn, who originally created videos for the now-defunct Violetshaped. September saw the release of Shapednoise's a new 4-track ep on Russian Torrent Versions.
