Carlo Elia Praderio
Composer, sound artist, mallets designer
Carlo Elia Praderio (Varese, 1993) is an Italian composer and sound artist. His interest in plastic and performing arts has deeply influenced his musical approach based on the physical contact between performer and instrument, and the friction between the sound-bodies which actively traverse living space and time.
He studied composition at the Conservatory of Milan with G. Manca (110/110 summa cum laude and Menzione Speciale Rancati) and at CNSM Paris with S. Gervasoni, Y. Maresz, L. Naon, G, Lorieux (Mention Très Bien à l’unanimité avec félicitations du jury and Prix de composition de la Fondation Salabert 2021).
