An Italian composer born June 3, 1981 in Taranto (Italy).
A pianist by training, Maurilio Cacciatore studied composition with Fabio Cifariello Ciardi at the Perugia Conservatory, with Ivan Fedele at the Strasburg Conservatory and at the Accademia Santa Cecilia in Rome, also taking part in the computer assisted composition course at Ircam.
His investigations into layout and algorithms for electronic sounds as well as into gesture and tone-colour are an invitation to a journey to the heart of sound, in performances that are often staged, in which music and visuals are conceived together right from the start.
His works have been commissioned by various groups and institutions such as the Arsenal in Metz (Le goût du jour for two actors, flute and piano, 2006), Accroche Note (Chansons for bass clarinet, alto, cello, double bass and percussion, 2009), Voix de Stras’ (Due Anfibi for amplified chorus, 2009), the Pomeriggi Musicali foundation in Milan (Stesso Denso for orchestra, 2011), the Abbaye de Royaumont (Apparaître, disparaître, se cacher, sound installation, 2011), Les Cris de Paris (Tamonontamo for vocal quartet and chorus, 2012), the Orchestre de Radio France (Radio raconti appena accennati for orchestra and electronics, 2013), the ensemble ConTempoArt (Meccanica degli avatar for eight musicians and live electronics, 2016).
Maurilio Cacciatore teaches electroacoustic composition at the Castelfranco Veneto Conservatory in Italy and is preparing a doctorate in new technologies applied to the composition at the Catholic University of Porto, in partnership with the electronics studio of Basel.
