Silvia Rosani: Intermezzo 4

Silvia Rosani: Intermezzo 4


Intermezzo 4 was born from _White Masks_, a project for cello, live electronics and resonating metal panels Silvia [] developed with cellist Esther Saladin and visual artist Ines Rebelo. Intermezzo 4 was designed by Silvia to offer non-musicians the opportunity to experiment with sound without any musical background. The metal panels are transformed into hybrid instruments by feedback and motors and, by approaching them with speakers drivers, sounds of different intensities and features are produced. After a short performance, Silvia encourages the audience members to interact with her panels.

SILVIA ROSANI is a composer/sound artist/researcher who collaborates with artists from different disciplines to product performances, which empower the communities with which she gets in contact. Silvia’s music is performed by some of the best ensembles for contemporary music such as Neue Vocalsolisten, Platypus ensemble, the ÖENM, and some of the best soloists, such as pianists Xenia Pestova Bennett and Anna D’Errico. Her music is performed worldwide at international festivals such as MATA Festival (NY), ECLAT (Stuttgart), Venice and Salzburg Biennale, and Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival. Silvia studied composition at the conservatoire in Italy and at Mozarteum Universität in Salzburg (Austria), and completed a PhD in Music at Goldsmiths, University of London, where she currently works as Associate Lecturer. She also holds a five-year degree in electronics engineering, which allows her to work with software for sound analysis and synthesis as well as DIY electronics. Silvia was recently in residence at the Centre for Human-Computer Interaction in Salzburg and, later, in Matera through a In Vitro Residency of LOXOSconcept.
