News: Patricia Alessandrini has been selected as the composer-in-residence with Red Note Ensemble

Patricia Alessandrini’s works engage with issues of representation, interpretation, perception, and memory, and are often multimedia, theatrical and collaborative.

She studied composition and electronics at the Conservatorio G.B.Martini di Bologna, Conservatoire National de Région de Strasbourg, and IRCAM, and holds two PhDs, from Princeton University and the SonicArts Research Centre (SARC) respectively. Her principal composition teachers were Ivan Fedele, Tristan Murail, and Thea Musgrave.
Her compositions and installations have been presented in venues and festivals in the Americas, Asia, Australia, and over 15 European countries. She is also a performer and improvisor of live electronics.
She was composer-in-residence at the 2010 soundSCAPE festival, and with the International Contemporary Ensemble in 2012. She was awarded first prize in 2009 in the Sond’Arte Composition Competition forChamber Music with Electronics, and a Förderpreis in Composition by the Darmstädter Ferienkurse in 2012. In 2014 she served as a UK representative in the Sound and Music/ISCM Composer Exchangeproject. She will be featured in the Musique augmentée series of the Ensemble InterContemporain at the Gaîté lyrique in 2015-6.
She previously taught at the Accademia Musicale Pescarese and Bangor University, and is currently a part-time Lecturer in Sonic Arts at Goldsmiths.

"I am delighted to have the opportunity to work with Red Note, one of the UK's leading contemporary music ensembles, as I share their passion for experimenting with forms of presentation and reaching out to new audiences. I am fascinated by Scottish politics and culture, so I am also very excited about realising a project there for the first time."
