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 (110/110 summa cum laude and Menzione Speciale Rancati) and at the Conservatory of Paris (CNSMDP)  where he graduated with the “Mention Très Bien avec félicitations du jury”. His teachers include S. Gervasoni, G. Manca, Y. Maresz, L. Naon, G. Lorieux and M. Azzan. He participates at Opus#1 at Royaumont with Th. Lacôte and H. Robbe.
