Maurilio Cacciatore

Play all audio recordings
Maurilio Cacciatore’s music stems out from a  combination of acoustic instruments with tools for digital music. It also incorporates electromechanical objects and uses various resources of informatics.
It results in a complex, multi-layered texture, presenting on the surface classical instruments and electronics, while containing an inner core of hybrid and non conventional techniques.
Beyond the conventional standard of spatialization, Maurilio Cacciatore’s loudspeaker setups explore non-coded solutions that integrate hardware and software within various musical contents.
The theatrical dimension of his works tends to integrate visual aspects and music into the score, seeking an improvement of communication among the players on stage.He was student of Fabio Cifariello Ciardi and Ivan Fedele, always obtaining the highest marks in Italy, Sweden and France. He was awarded a Ph.D. cum laude in Science and Technology of the Arts Catholic University of Porto (tutored by Erik Oña) - Philippe Manoury, head of the examine committee.He has been composer in residence at the Studios of the Ircam, the ZKM, the Muse en Circuit of Paris and the Elektronisches Studio Basel.
