Francesco (Italy, b. 1992) is a composer and multimedia artist based in the Netherlands. He is currently completing a Master’s degree in Sonology at the Royal Conservatoire of The Hague and in collaboration with the Studio for Electro-Instrumental Music (STEIM) of Amsterdam. Originally trained in classical piano and composition at the Music Conservatory of Perugia, he is now leading his artistic research focusing on live electronic processes, music embodiment and human-computer interaction. Aiming to empower the role of the performer through the design of interactive music systems based on gestural interfaces and machine learning algorithms, his interests lead on investigating the potential of integrating the computer within the context of mixed-music composition.
