In 2009, renowned composer and electronic musician Marko Ciciliani was the recipient of the prestigious Villa Aurora Stipend, a three-month artists residency in Los Angeles. Also in 2009 he was composer-in-residence of the 14th Composers Forum in Mittersill/Austria. He received numerous project-residencies at STEIM and ZKM, the latest for his one–hour multimedia production Heterotopolis which was successfully world premiered in November 2012 in Karlsruhe (Germany) and immediately repeated at Signale-Graz.
Marko Ciciliani has collected extensive experience not only in the fields of “academic” composition, but also in free improvisation and cross-disciplinary projects. He has written for a variety of settings, like solo-, chamber- and orchestra-works, often combined with live-electronics, and purely electronic works. An additional focus in many of his works lies in the application of lighting as part of the composition, in the form of a specially developed light design. The artistic combination of sound and light was also the topic of his PhD research that he completed at Brunel University London in 2010.
Ciciliani is guest-professor for electro-acoustic composition at the Institute for Acoustics and Media (IEM) of the Arts University in Graz/Austria and lecturer for electro-acoustic composition and acoustics at the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna. He is also visiting lecturer at the University for Applied Sciences in St.Pölten.
