BIO

 Giulia Vismara, born in Venice, studied Musicology at the University of Bologna and Music and New Technology at the Conservatory of  Florence and the Royal Conservatory of The Hague. She learned sound design for   cinema and attended different workshops on acousmatic and electroacoustic composition (Trevor Wishart, Natasha Barrett, Beatryz Ferreyra).

Currently she is a PhD student at IUAV, researching the dynamical   relationship between sound, space and body

(                ).

 She is a composer of electronic, electroacoustic and acousmatic music, and also an educator. Beside composition, she creates sound installation,   and realizes works for video, theatre and performance.  

Her interest lies in the experience of listening as an act of mind wandering in connection with the dimension/perception of space.

ARTISTIC STATEMENT
 

Giulia Vismara is a sculptress of sonic matter. She is mostly concerned with the organic nature of sound and the creation of textures in which concrete and synthetic elements combine together. Space is the key of her research, the matrix that molds the music and the sounds she composes. For her, listening is in itself a part of the experience of space. Through her research she is investigating what does it means "space" as a concept in different context as architecture, technology and composition and how we can experience it via sound. For this reason she is using different methods and approach to spatializaiont and 3d technologies. When composing for theater and video, her music entwines the underlying concepts shaping the work and the practice of performers, maintaining at the same time a distinct personal touch.
