Clara Iannotta

Born in Rome in 1983, she firstly wanted to become a flautist but concentrated more on more on composition. After studying composition with Alessandro Solbiati, she got several important influences from notable composers such as Mark André, Franck Bedrossian, Chaya Czernowin and Steven Takasugi.

She then studied in Paris for five years at the CNSM de Paris, with Frédéric Durieux, and from January 2013 she moved to Berlin where she was a one year guest of the Berliner Künstlerprogramm des DAAD.

She is particularly interested in music as an existential, physical experience − music should be seen as well as heard. This is one of the reasons why she sometimes prefers to talk about the choreography of the sound rather than about orchestration.

Current projects include a new piece for the Ensemble Intercontemporain commissioned by the Festival d’Automne à Paris, a piano concerto for Wilhem Latchoumia and Ensemble Orchestral Contemporain and the artistic direction of the Bludenzer Tage zeitgemäßer Musik festival.

As of February 2015
