Claudia Jane Scroccaro

Claudia Jane Scroccaro (Neuilly-Sur-Seine – France, 1984). Lives in Stuttgart, Germany.

Claudia Jane Scroccaro is an Italian composer of instrumental and electroacoustic music. The sonic aspect holds a dominant role in her work and reflects deep interests for electronic music and for music of aural tradition. Her creative approach explores a musical dramaturgy shifting between a humanly perceivable listening experience and microphonic projections of the dynamic properties of sound on multi-dimensional spaces, resulting into an alternation between kaleidoscopic movements and introspective explorations. Her music has been performed in Europe and in the USA by Ensemble Ascolta, ECCE Ensemble, Ensemble Suono Giallo, EchtZeit Ensemble, Ensemble Musikfabrik, among others. She has been composer in residence for the Music Innovation and Science Centre in Vilnius. She is currently in residence at the composition academy of the SWR Vokalensemble.
