Patricia Alessandrini’s works engage with issues of representation, interpretation, perception, and memory, and are often multimedial, theatrical, and collaborative. Most of these works employ interactive electronics. She studied composition and electronics at the Conservatorio G. B. Martini di Bologna, Conservatoire National de Region de Strasbourg, and IRCAM, and holds two PhDs, from Princeton University and the Sonic Arts Research Centre (SARC), respectively. Her principal composition teachers were Ivan Fedele, Paul Koonce, Tristan Murail, and Thea Musgrave. Her compositions and installations have been presented in the Americas, Asia, Australia, and over 15 European countries, by ensembles including Accroche Note, Arditti Quartet, Ensemble Aleph, Ensemble Alternance, Ensemble Itineraire, and ensemble recherche, in festivals such as Agora, Archipel, Donaueschinger Musiktage, Electric Spring, Heidelberger Fruhling, Gaudeamus Muziekweek, Mostly Mozart, Musica, rainy days, Salzburg Biennale, and Sonorities Festival of Contemporary Music. She is also a performer and improvisor of live electronics.
