Raphael Vanoli is a guitarist working in the fields of jazz, rock, electronics and contemporary classical music. He plays a set-up of analogue effect boxes and loopers, using prepared guitar techniques. Austrian Gerri and German/French Raphael met in 2006 at the Amsterdam Jazz Conservatory and founded Knalpot.
