Isabella Forciniti


Isabella Forciniti is a Vienna based sound artist from Italy. Her work maneuvers
within tensions evoked by the substantial aspects of sound and improvised
music. Her intention is to explore deliberate states of sounds through examining
relationships among interwoven sound surroundings, informal practice as well as
their intrinsic abilities.

Besides performing live she has also gained experience with scoring movies
during her work with Peter Kubelka’s „Arnulf Rainer“ film strips and scoring
gender-critical silent movies from the early 20th century. Furthermore, she has
been involved in research projects at the intersection of the artistic potential of
digital networking (The Choir and The Sound System) and the development of
digital instruments modulated by environmental data (A Sound That Never Was).
Forciniti performed at music festivals such as Wien Modern (AT), Skaņu Mežs
(LV), Ars Electronica (AT), Unsound Festival (PL) and UH Fest (HU). In 2022 she
was selected to be part of the SHAPE+ platform for innovative music and
audiovisual art.

She holds a degree in communication sciences focused on sociology and
multimedia. In 2019 she finished the university program Computer Music and
Electronic Media (ELAK) at the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna.
Currently she studies computer music and composition at the Anton Bruckner
Private University and Postdigital Lutherie at the University of Art and Design
Linz (AT) focussing on digital music performance, improvised music and tangible
interaction design.
