descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Born in Rome in 1983, she spent her whole childhood studying to become a flautist.After her harmony teacher more or less forced her, she started taking composition classes in 2003, and realized that composing was the art that represented her the most. Looking for a good teacher, she travelled around Italy and she stopped for three years in Milan to study with Alessandro Solbiati.

Since then, she has had inspiring discussions with many composers: she talked about notation with Mark André, about material with Franck Bedrossian, about form with Chaya Czernowin, and about silence with Steven Takasugi.

She is particularly interested in music as an existential, physical experience - music should be seen as well as heard. This is one of the reasons why she sometimes prefers to talk about the choreography of the sound rather than about orchestration.She lived and studied in Paris for five years at the CNSM de Paris, with Frédéric Durieux, from January 2013 she moved to Berlin where she was a one year guest of the Berliner Künstlerprogramm des DAAD, and she is now working on a PhD at Harvard University.

Current projects include new pieces for Accentus, Wilhem Latchoumia & EOC, 2e2m, CrossingLines, Neue Vocalsolisten, Münchener Kammerorchester as well as the artistic direction of the Bludenzer Tage zeitgemäßer Musik festival (2014-2018).she live between Berlin and Boston."-Clara Iannotta Website
