Laura Faoro

BIO
An eclectic musician, active on the front of classical repertoire as well as in the field of performance and experimentation, L. Faoro has a multidisciplinary path from the very beginning, obtaining in 5 years her BS degree in flute at the Verdi Conservatory, a few months after graduating in Archaeology at the Catholic University, both cum laude.
For this multishaped attitude she chose to focus on contemporary repertoire with M. Caroli at the CSI in Lugano, and with A. Morini. Thus began an intense activity as a soloist and chamber musician in Italy and Europe (among others, soloist in the 2nd Concerto for flute by A. Jolivet at the RSI in Lugano), carrying on in parallel since 2014 various projects as a performer, aimed at enhance the contemporary musical language combined with other artistic forms: COMFORT ZONE (home video camera performance) commissioned by Padua Art Center during the lockdown and then selected for Festival Aperto 2020 among the best italian digital works created in quarantine; the site-specific installation sound project “Scents of sound in soap”, winner of the Artistic Director’s Mention at 1st Edition of the International Call “Festival del Tempo” 2020 in Sermoneta; the intermedia concert BlueTube (World Water Day 2016; Lugano, LAC 2016 and Serate Musicali 2018); the sound dramatization “Arianna: il suon de’ bei lamenti” (Monteverdi 450th Festival 2017); the musical theater piece “Merry Wives of William”,musician and actress (prod. Piccolo Teatro di Milano 2016; Rome Sala Umberto 2018; Shakespearean Month of Bari 2016; II Bonacina Prize 2016); the theater concert “Alice: 88 tasti nella storia” (Fersen Award 2013). Since 2015 she has been working on her own soundscapes for flute and electronics and on free improvisation (Festival Vapore d’Estate 2020 and Change of Season 2020, for Padua Art Center in duo with W. Prati; Parade Electronique 2018, for MMT; Festival Subsculture 2018 Treviso). Her 2019 has been dedicated to the Stockhausen musical theater: she made her debut at Auditorium Pollini, Padua (A. Vidolin sound engineer) in KATHINKAs GESANG aus LICHT, awarded with the Stockhausen Prize 2019 by the Stockhausen Foundation, recognition never achieved before by an Italian flutist, and replicated with critical acclaim at Teatro Valli for Festival Aperto 2019 (with Tempo Reale).
She was invited as a soloist by Milano Musica 2019 Festival in PARADIES by Stockhausen and Tracce by L. Francesconi (with M. Marchi, AGON).
