Compositore – Elettronica
Maurilio Cacciatore’s music stems out of a combination of acoustical instruments with tools for digital music. It also incorporates electromechanical objects and uses various resources of informatics. It results in 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 has been a student of Fabio Cifariello Ciardi and Ivan Fedele, always obtaining the beast marks in Italy, Sweden and France. He is currently working toward a PhD at the Catholic University of Porto and the Academy of Music of Basel under the guidance of Erik Oña. Between 2009 and 2011, he followed the Cursus 1 and 2 in Music Informatics at the IRCAM. 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.
He is lecturer of Electroacoustic Composition at the Conservatory of Castelfranco Veneto (Italy). In 2010 he got the “G. Petrassi” Prize of the President of the Republic of Italy; in 2012 he got the First Prize at the International Composition Competition “Premio Trio di Trieste”. In 2016 he has been nominated by RadioRai3 (Italy) for the International Rostrum of Composers. In 2017 he has been awarded the Giga Hertz Produktion Preis of the ZKM | IMA of Karlsruhe. He has begun as guest professor to start the first electronic music class of Mozambico at the Conservatory of Music and Dramatic Art of Maputo. Maurilio is active as composer, professor and researcher in Europe, Asia, North America and Australia. His music is published by the Edizioni Suvini Zerboni, Milan.
