Ciciliani, Marko (Composition)

Born 1970 in Croatia. Ciciliani's main interest combines performative electronic music – often in combination with instruments, and audiovisually extended means of laser-design, light-design or live-video. It is characteristic of Ciciliani’s compositions that sound is not only understood as abstract material but as a culturally shaped idiom which offers connection points for visual elements. The exploration of a sound’s communicative potential is as much in the foreground of his work as its objective sonic quality. Ciciliani’s work is characterized by a conceptual approach in which aspects of classical composition, computer music and media-art play tightly together.


Because of these manifold references, his work – which has been performed in more than 35 countries across Europe, the Americals, Asia and Oceania– evades the categorization to a single genre.


Ciciliani is full Professor for Computer-Music Composition and Sound Design at the IEM – the Institute for Electronic Music and Acoustics (IEM) of the University of Music and Performing Arts Graz.
