Oscar Bianchi

Oscar Bianchi

Jury2017

Born n Milan, holding dual Italian-Swiss citizenships, Oscar Bianchi completed degrees in composition, choir conducting and electronic music at the Giuseppe Verdi conservatory of Milan. He pursued studies in composition taking part in master programs such as at IRCAM - Centre Pompidou and with a doctoral degree at Columbia University in New York. Vitality, pulsing rhythms, and virtuosity are the hallmarks of the music created by Bianchi, who reveals a sensible interest in new phrasings and new ornamentations, something to be expected from someone whose ears are finely attuned to the music from all corners of the globe. A vocal quality, even in his instrumental work, can strike us as a prominent feature of his music. Exuberant and intelligent, this vocal dimension plays with a refined art of accentuations in all its intermediate degrees. We know him now increasingly interested in cantata and opera: at its core, Bianchi's music continues to be guided by the challenge of dramaturgical and formal issues. The unexpected contrasts between voluble virtuosity and contemplative stasis are the driving force of his flair for dramatic gesture. His music is joyfully violent in breath and in song but may suddenly come to rest in prayer, via a specific harmony, as though struck by the noonday light. Commissioned by the Aix-en-Provence Festival and Théâtre & Musique, his first opera, Thanks to My Eyes, libretto and direction by Joël Pommerat, received critical acclaim by audiences and critics alike (A masterly portrait of Melancholy, Le Monde, July 7, 2011). His music has been performed by outstanding ensembles and orchestras such as Gewandhaus Leipzig, Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France, Deutsche Symphonie Orchester, Ensemble Modern, Klangforum Wien, JACK quartet, Les Percussions de Strasbourg, Ictus, Quatuor Diotima, Ensemble Remix, Nieuw Ensemble, Ensemble l’Itineraire, Ensemble Contrechamps, International Contemporary Ensemble, Alarm Will Sound, David Grimal, Kammerensemble für neue Musik Berlin, Phoenix Ensemble, Collegium Novum Zürich, Drumming Grupo de Percussão from Porto, Ensemble Laboratorium, Osterreichiches Ensemble für neue Musik, Sound’arte. Upcoming projects include new works for the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks, Orchestra della Svizzera Italiana, Ensemble Modern, Jack, Remix ensemble, London Symphonietta, Asko-Schoenberg and Collegium Novum Zürich. Oscar Bianchi was a guest of the DAAD Kunstlerprogramm Berlin, Pro-Helvetia in Warsaw and Johannesburg and the Atlantic Center for the Arts in Florida. He has been awarded numerous prizes, such as the Gaudeamus first Prize, the Grand Prix de la SACEM, the Dussurget Prize, the Asm-Stv Prize, the Aargauer Kuratorium fellowship and the Ictus fellowship. «Partendo», for countertenor and ensemble, has been awarded with the 2016 IMC International Rostrum of composer's prize. His CD Portrait won in 2013 the German Record Critics' Award. The works of Oscar Bianchi have been performed throughout Europe, Asia and the Americas in prestigious venues such as Philarmonie Berlin, Alice Tully Hall (Lincoln Center, New York); Luzern Festival; Festival d'Aix-en-Provence, La Monnaie, Moscow Philharmonic, Muziekgebouw, Amsterdam; Herkules Saal Munich, Venice Biennale; Musica Festival Strasbourg; Autumn Festival Warsaw; Casa da Musica Porto, Cairo Opera, Ultrashall Berlin; Eclat Stuttgart; Gasteig Munich; Ars Musica, Bozar, Brussels; Archipel, Geneva; Tages für Neue Musik, Zürich; IRCAM Centre-Pompidou, Paris; Abbaye du Royaumont; DRS; RSR; RSI; RAI; France Culture; RFI; TFI; France Inter; RTBF; ORT; SWR; Deutschland Kultur, RBB, Tchaikovsky Conservatory, Moscow; the University of Witwatersrand, Johannesburg; Kulturhuset, Stockholm; Sonora Festival, Cologne; OggiMusica, Lugano; Musica è Realtà, Milan; Nuove sincronie, Milan; Milan Conservatory; Teatro Comunale di Bologna, Nuova Consonanza, Rome; CEMAT, Rome.

Panayiotis Kokoras

Jury2017

Panayiotis Kokoras (Greece, 1974) is an internationally award-winning composer and computer music innovator. He is an Associate Professor at the University of North Texas. Born in Greece, he studied classical guitar and composition in Athens, Greece and York, England; he taught for many years at Aristotle University in Thessaloniki (among others). Kokoras's sound compositions use timbre as the main element of form. His concept of "holophony" describes his goal that each independent sound (phonos), contributes equally into the synthesis of the total (holos). In both instrumental and electroacoustic writing, his music calls upon a "virtuosity of sound," emphasizing the precise production of variable sound possibilities and the correct distinction between one timbre and another to convey the musical ideas and structure of the piece. His compositional output is also informed by musical research in Music Information Retrieval compositional strategies, Extended techniques, Tactile sound, Augmented reality, Robotics, Spatial Sound, Consciousness and Music. His compositional output consists of 62 works ranging from solo, ensemble and orchestral works to mixed media, improvisation and tape. His works have been commissioned by institutes and festivals such as the Fromm Music Foundation (Harvard), IRCAM (France), MATA (New York), Gaudeamus (Netherlands), ZKM (Germany), IMEB (France), Siemens Musikstiftung (Germany) and have been performed in over 600 concerts around the world.

Jury2017

Silvia Lanzalone (Salerno 1970), composer. Silvia Lanzalone is the Head of the Department of New Technologies and New Languages and professor of Electronic Composition at the Conservatoire ‘G.Martucci’ of Salerno, since 2009. She also collaborate, since 1997, with CRM – Centro Ricerche Musicali in Rome, as composer, researcher and musical assistant. She studied Flute with Enrico Renna, Annamaria Morini and Peter-Lukas Graf; Composition with Mauro Cardi and Guido Baggiani, Music Technology with Michelangelo Lupone and Giorgio Nottoli and she has achieved the Diploma of Flute at Conservatoire of Salerno, the Diploma of Composition and the Diploma of Electronic Music at Conservatoire of L'Aquila and at Conservatoire of Rome. Silvia Lanzalone’s work is oriented towards experimentation and research into new expressive and linguistic solutions, primarily using the computer technology in order to process sound in real time. Recently her interest in mainly focused on the creation of pieces characterized by improvisation and a gestural component. In these works the use of the computer is generally combined with the creation of interactive instruments and sound installations. In Silvia Lanzalone’s works, technology, rather than imposing itself on the natural sound in order to modify it trough artificial algorithms, becomes part of the whole physical-acoustic structure of a new ‘instrument’, conceived and designed in parallel with the music in order to give life, each time, to a specific and independent artwork, both plastic and sonorous. The interest towards the visual element is based on the aesthetical idea that the work of art is an intermedial experience in which several perceptual items do converge into it. Silvia Lanzalone’s most recent works have been produced with the collaboration of instrumentalists, dancers, film directors, actors and visual art performers. In 2000 Silvia Lanzalone won the “Quarant’anni nel 2000” International Prize of Composition organized by Federazione CEMAT - Centri Musicali Attrezzati, for the creation of a musical theatre work for children, called Junofirst (KHJay e Neuroboy contro i pirati del Web), that has been produced by Società Aquilana dei Concerti “B. Barattelli” and by CRM - Centro Ricerche Musicali in Rome. In 2006 she won the “Franco Evangelisti International Prize of Composition” with the work Il suono Incausato, improvise-action for suspended clarinet, clarinettist and electronics (2005). In 2009 she had a grant from the “C. M. Lerici Foundation” to make a research project on female voice in contemporary music at the KTH - Royal Institute of Technology of Stockholm, Department of Speech, Music and Hearing. In 2013 her work for digital medium Alba d’oro was selected in the call of Federazione CEMAT “6° CD Call Punti di Ascolto”, for the production of a CD of electronic works. In 2015 she created the music for Teresa d'Avila, Esclamazioni dell'anima a Dio, a two-hours drama realized with the complete text of Santa Teresa D’Avila, translated and performed by Silvia Schiavoni, whose voice was elaborated and transfigured by computer, together with the sounds of Gianni Trovalusci’s flute and other electronic sounds; this work was commissioned and broadcast by Radio Vaticana, introduced by Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi and Monsignor Melchor Sánchez de Toca, and produced Marco Di Battista. Silvia Lanzalone did write some articles which were published on specific books and magazines (Organized Sound-International Journal of Music and Technology, Syrinx, Music@, Equipeco, Le arti del suono, UTET Università) did lectures and masterclasses on Electronic Music and New Technologies, as well as talks during several international conventions (CIM-Colloquium on Musical Informatics, EAW-Electroacoustic Winds, NIME-New Interfaces for Musical Expression, UCM-Understanding and Creating Music).

Agostino Di Scipio

Agostino Di Scipio

Jury2017

Agostino Di Scipio (Naples, Italy, 1962) composer, sound artist, scholar. Graduated in Composition and Electronic Music from the Conservatory of L’Aquila, studied Computer Music at CSC, University of Padova. Di Scipio explores original methods in the gener¬ation and transmission of sound, often featuring phenomena of emergence and chaotic dynamics, in either live electronics performance contexts, chamber music contexts or sound installation works. Many of his recent works implement “man-machine-environonment” net¬works of purely sonic interactions (e.g. the Audible Ecosystemics series, and the more recent Modes of Interference series). A recent special issue of Contemporary Music Review draws on Di Scipio’s artistic achievements in this direction. His music is available on various labels (RZ Edition, Chrysopeé Electronique, Wergo, Neuma, etc.). With pianist Ciro Longobardi, Di Scipio published a full-length realization of John Cage’s Electronic Music for Piano (Venice Biennale 2012, available on Stradivarius). With saxophonist and political agitator Mario Gabola, he runs the Upset duo exploring recycled analog circuitry (Upset, Viande). His output also includes two chamber theatre works with poetry reading and electroacoustics, Tiresia and Sound & Fury. Artist-in-residence of DAAD Berlin (2004-2005) and other international residency programs, Di Scipio has served as full-time professor in Electroacoustic Composition at the Conservatory of Naples (2001-2013) and today holds the same position in L’Aquila, a small medieval town in the Appennine mountains, where he lives. Edgar-Varèse-Professor at Technische Universität, Berlin (2007-2008), guest professor in various international institutions, active member of the research team Ecologies du son at University Paris 8. His writings focus on cognitive and political implications of sound and music technologies (e.g. the volume Pensare le tecnologie del suono e della musica, Naples 2013), issues that are also central in many of compositions and sound works (see the recent book + CD Polveri sonore, La Camera Verde, Roma, 2014). Guest editor of the Journal of New Music Research for a special issue on Iannis Xenakis, and editor of various volumes including Xenakis’ Universi del suono (Milan 2003), Gottfried Michael Koenig's Genesi e forma (Rome, 1995), Michael Eldred’s Heidegger, Holderlin & John Cage (Rome 2000). http://agostinodiscipio.xoom.it/adiscipi/
