Franco Degrassi | Bari | Italy










The highpoint of my vocational training as electroacoustic musician, has
been the music informatics summer courses at the C.S.C. University of Padua (in 1985 )and the meeting with Denis Dufour (from 2002) by which I improved acousmatic theory and compositional didactics. I have practiced acousmatic composition, electroacoustic interpretation and electroacoustic improvisation. I have realized experimental music software. Since 2002 I devoted myself exclusively to acousmatic compositions. I set up (thanks to Jonathan Prager's advice) one of the first Italian systems for projecting sound according to the model of the French-speaking acousmonium, in Apulia (South Italy) . I founded and directed in Bari an annual festival of acousmatic music (Silence 20...) which had its 6th edition in 2009. Now I am teacher of electronic music at the Conservatorio di Musica “Tito Schipa” in Lecce.
