Born in Rome in 1983, I spent my whole childhood studying to become a flautist.
After my harmony teacher more or less forced me, I started taking composition classes in 2003, and after one year I realized that composing was the art that represented me the most. Looking for a good teacher, I travelled around Italy and I stopped for three years in Milan to study with Alessandro Solbiati, to whom I have dedicated my pieces Clangs and D’après.
Since then, I have had inspiring discussions with many composers: I talked about notation with Mark André, about material with Franck Bedrossian, about form with Chaya Czernowin, and about silence with Steven Takasugi.
I am particularly interested in music as an existential, physical experience – music should be seen as well as heard. This is one of the reasons why I sometimes prefer to talk about the choreography of the sound rather than about orchestration.
I lived and studied in Paris for five years, and from January 2013 I moved to Berlin where I was a one year guest of the Berliner Künstlerprogramm des DAAD.
Current projects include a new piece for the Ensemble Intercontemporain commissioned by the Festival d'Automne à Paris, a piano concerto for Wilhem Latchoumia and Ensemble Orchestral Contemporain and the artistic direction of the Bludenzer Tage zeitgemäßer Musik festival 2014-2015.
