Contemporary music becomes hyper-system
The composer Jacopo Baboni Schilingi and his projects in Paris
Some time has passed since a composer tried to develop an aesthetic of music that - although starting from his position - could be a key to understanding and thinking the entire contemporary horizon.
That a systematic aesthetic elaboration has not suited the western composer, since Boulez's time, is perhaps inscribed in the definitive explosion of languages and styles of the last decades. To this pulverized image, the young Italian Jacopo Baboni Schilingi tries to give new perspective with a new aesthetic theory: hyper-systemic music.

The New York Times - 2001- USA
If the school were to try this, Mr. Baboni Schilingi might be a man to invite. His composition, « The Color of Blue », was a beautiful short piece for string quartet, evidently the work of a composer close to the Paris spectral school, but distinctively elegant and fascinating in its untangling and retanglings of webs of sound. It had obviously appealed to the imaginations of its players. [Paul Griffiths]
