Short presentation

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. This year he is the residence artist for the Grand Palais exhibition Artists & Robots (Paris from April to July 2018), he is working with Chanel for a new photo and music exhibition (Tokyo – 2018, 2019, 2020) and for a series of concerts in France, Italy, Japan, USA and China. He was associated artist at the Saline Royale d’Arc-et-Senans, composer-in-residence at IRCAM, curator of the annual worldwide PRISMA Conference, and associated artist of the EMW Festival in Shanghai. He performed his compositions for the Venice Biennale in Art section and Music section. Jacopo 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 French-born American visual artist Arman in the 2000s initiated a series of creative collaborations with Miguel Chevalier, Jean-Pierre Balpe, Alain Fleischer, Elias Crespin, Sarkis, and others. Jacopo Baboni Schilingi is artistic director of the Interactive Music Ensemble, which he founded in 2001. He has been guest professor at Harvard University (USA) and at Wuhan Conservatory (China).
