Carmine-Emanuele Cella

Composer Carmine-Emanuele Cella explores the poetic relationship between the structured world of mathematics and the chaotic world of artistic expression. His music is not based on melodies, chords, or rhythms but on writing the sound itself. Each note and each musical figure are components of an overall sound image, unified and physical, which reveals the tragic history of sounds.

Carmine-Emanuele Cella studied piano, computer music, composition, mathematics, and philosophy. He holds a doctorate in composition from the Accademia S. Cecilia of Rome and a doctorate in applied mathematics from the University of Bologna. Since 2007, Carmine- Emanuele Cella has been collaborating with IRCAM, where he is both researcher and composer.
