Short presentation and news...

Jacopo Baboni Schilingi is an Italian/French composer who has mixed different mediums in order to create new musical perspectives and erase artistic borders. He composes music for soloists, ensembles, orchestras, for installations and movies, taking part in the most important international festivals.

Jacopo Baboni Schilingi comes from an “art music” background in which writing and interactivity are paramount. He is one of the most representative composers of his generation, and recognized as such in conservatories and classical concert halls: he was associated artist at the Saline Royale d’Arc-et-Senans, composer-in-residence at IRCAM in Paris, curator of the annual worldwide Prisma conference, and associated artist of the EMW Festival in Shanghai. Baboni Schilingi is equally at home in interdisciplinary modes of artistic expression which combine visuals, architecture and interactions with the public in new contexts. His work with Arman in the 2000s initiated a series of creative collaborations with Miguel Chevalier, Jean-Pierre Balpe, Alain Fleischer, Elias Crespin, Sarkis, and others. Baboni Schilingi is artistic director of the Interactive Music Ensemble, which he founded in 2001. In 2015 and 2016, he was visiting scholar at Harvard University and guest professor at Wuhan Conservatory. Since 1999 he is head of the Department of Composition in the Conservatoire of Montbéliard - (France)
