Meet the Composers: Michele Zaccagnini

I am a composer and audio-programmer from Rome, Italy. My work focuses on generative music, interactivity, and music perception. I have written for several acoustic ensembles in the US (International Contemporary Ensemble, Lydian String Quartet, and Radnofsky Sax Quartet among others) and in Europe. I am currently working on interactive music applications that are based on my algorithmic compositional techniques and on visual music.

Michele’s new piece Variazioni su Space Invader – a piece for two cellos, electronics, and film – will be featured on our upcoming April 27th concert JAM: Improvisation, Chance, and Storytelling.
