Meeting with Marta Gentilucci



Marta Gentilucci studied Vocal Arts as a soprano at the Conservatory “Francesco Morlacchi” of Perugia. In Perugia she obtained, cum laude, her Master in Foreign Languages and Literature. She completed her Master Degree in composition and in composition/computer music at the University of Music and Performing Arts Stuttgart under the guidance of Marco Stroppa. She was selected for the two-year program in computer music at IRCAM (Cursus 1 and 2). She gained a PhD in Composition from Harvard University, mentored by Chaya Czernowin and Hans Tutschku. Her formal training as an opera singer influenced and formed her as a composer, as well as her attraction to the inner structure of sound, its way of resonating in space and oscillating within a timespan, its metamorphosis in color and “shape”. She is particularly interested in vocal music and technology, and the different possibilities of building acoustic and virtual spaces. Her deep artistic necessity is to create a musical space where music and sounds are perceived not only as an intellectual construct, but also as a physical sensation. Among her most recent activities, in 2020 she was commissioned by IRCAM and Neue Vocalsolisten two new pieces for voice and live electronics, both premiered during the MANIFESTE Festival (Paris, 2020) and performed at the ECLAT Festival 2021. Her forthcoming projects in 2021/2022 include the premiere of a new piece for voice, percussion and live electronics in collaboration with the Experimentalstudio des SWR Freiburg, a piece for electronics and dance for the dancer Netta Weiser, and a sound-visual installation created with the photographer Susan Meiselas. She is resident at the Académie de France in Rome – Villa Medici 2021/2022.
