An Italian composer born December 4, 1978 in Perugia (Italy).
A pianist by training, Marco Momi studied conducting then composition, in particular with Fabio Cifariello Ciardi (Perugia Conservatory), Ivan Fedele (Strasburg Conservatory) and Yan Maresz (Ircam). He holds a doctorate from the Accademia Nazionale Santa Cecilia in Rome.
Marco Momi explores musical sounds and extra-musical sounds with a childlike spirit that is both curious and amused in his different Ludica. He also seeks to create a world from sound material that is simple, manipulating small ecosystems of sound as in his cycle Iconica. He also works on transitions, in his series of pieces entitled Almost, dealing with sound matter as the record of an itinerary based on detachment.
His works, difficult though they be to perform, fall into the category of chamber music and have been played in Europe and Asia, notably by the Nieuw Ensemble (Iconica I for flute, clarinet, violin, cello and piano, 2006), the Neue Vocalsolistin Stuttgart (Iconica III for six voices, 2009), the Ensemble Intercontemporain (Iconica IV for string trio, flute, clarinet, prepared piano and electronics, 2010), Accroche Note (Almost Requiem for voice and ensemble, 2014, commissioned by the French state), Klangforum Wien (Almost Nowhen for ensemble, 2014, commissioned by the festival Impuls), and the Zaïde Quartet (Unrisen for piano and string quartet, 2016, first performed at the festival ManiFeste).
