A French composer born October 21, 1961 in Saint-Avold.
Marco Marini studied drumming with Richard Paul Morellini at the Centre Musical Créatif Nancéen. A drummer with various groups of current music (rock, jazz, variété, fanfare…), he practises percussion, singing, the manipulation of diverse objects and has become a composer and musician-actor with the Materia Prima company. He realises sound installations and develops his compositions for the dramatic and choreographic arts.
With a diploma in electroacoustic composition from the Conservatory of Pantin, he specialises in this domain and pursues his work in collaboration with different artistes and theatre and dance companies. A multi-disciplinary musician, directing his research towards live electronics and new interfaces, he develops notably work of improvisation and composition on a textile interface for his Agrigento, first performed at the Musée d’Art Moderne André Malraux in Le Havre as part of a retrospective on Nicolas de Staël (2014). Other works include Étude aux cuics et couacs, electroacoustic work premiered at the festival Synthèses in Bourges (2004); Cellostries, for cello and acousmonium, first performed by Aude Romary at the festival Musique Action of Vandœuvre-lès-Nancy (2014); De Parmegiani sonorum, an electroacoustic work commissioned by Ina-GRM and premiered at the Maison de la Radio (2020).
After eight years of collaboration with Christine Groult at the Conservatory of Pantin, Marini took over the direction of the electroacoustic composition class in 2015. He has also collaborated with Sébastien Béranger in various pedagogical activities at La Muse en Circuit, a national centre for musical creation.
