Musician, improviser, composer, sonic interaction designer and researcher. 

Although I am specialised in not being specialised, my work often involves the development of interactive musical systems and instruments.  My research is at the intersection of music composition / improvisation, instrument crafting and HCI, considering the practice of sonic interaction design as an opportunity to play with sounds, illusions and  magic. 

I usually collaborate with artists from other disciplines such as dance, theatre, visual art and design. Eventually, I work as sound designer and sometimes I arrange audio-visual compositions and installations.

 

I studied at the Conservatory of Genoa N. Paganini (electroacoustic music composition and performance - BMsu) and at Sonology and STEIM (Instruments & Interfaces master program - MMus). I was visiting student at the University of Edinburgh (Composition and Music Technology programmes).

I often perform, present or exhibit my work(s) in academic and artistic contexts. These include ICMC - NIME - DIS conferences,  Sonology - The Hague, ZKM - Karlsruhe, IEM - Graz, Ars Electronica - Linz, EmuFest - Rome, STEIM - Amsterdam, Guildhall School of Music - London,  China Conservatory of Music - Beijing, MediaLab Prado - Madrid,  Bauhaus University - Weimar.

I was sound designer and researcher at the international centre of research InfoMus - Casa Paganini - EECS - University of Genoa. I taught at the Conservatory of Genoa N. Paganini the module "Interactive Multimodal Environments" and I was Teaching Assistant (TA) for the "Sound and Music Production" module at EECS department - Queen Mary University of London.

I am currently a PhD candidate at the Augmented Instruments Lab - C4DM, under the Media & Arts Technology programme - Queen Mary University of London.
