My musical research is focused on the exploration of real-time feedback systems in performances and sound installations. Concepts like Self-dis/organization, Chaos and Emergence are central and they mirror my interest in implementing dynamical, unpredictable and evolving systems, where the synergy between elements results in a holistic whole generating non-conventional sound/form synthesis, organic sonic systems which will keep their identities while never producing the same pattern or structure, where complexity comes from the interaction between simple elements. In my performance, improvisation has a major role and it is meant, from a systemic point of view, as a mechanism to establish an interdependency between the performer and the system, a condition where the performance follows nonlinear developments and comes from the co-operation between these two entities. In sound installations, instead, these systems will express their own aesthetics and autonomous character.
Dario Sanfilippo was born in Agrigento, Italy, in 1983. He is a freelance composer, performer
and sound artist whose research is focused on the study and exploration of complex dynamical feedback systems for non-conventional sound synthesis, improvised human-machine interaction performances, and autonomous sound installations. His works and research have been presented in international festivals and contemporary music events such as AudioArt Festival, Curva Minore Festival, Acoustic Fields Festival, AudioVisiva Festival, Quiet Cue concert series, Live!iXem Festival, Logos Foundation series, as well as Universities like Naples’ L’Orientale, Music and Performing Arts University of Vienna, University of Graz (IEM), Bangor University, Queen Mary University of London. His works and research have been selected for international conferences like International Computer Music Conference 2012, Sound and Music Computing 2011, Digital Music Research Network 2011, Colloquium of Musical Informatics 2010 and 2012, INTER/actions Symposium 2012, and they have been published by record labels such as Creative Sources, Die Schachtel and Idroscalo, and journals like Computer Music Journal. He graduated in Music and New Technologies at the Conservatory of Trapani, and is currently attending the Master’s Degree in Electronic Music at the Conservatory of Naples, in the class of Agostino Di Scipio.
