[ISEA2015] Artist Statement: Daria Baiocchi – PLASMA

Artist Statement

Electroacoustic-fixed music (2014)

Plasma is referred to as the “Fourth State of Matter” because the number of electrically charged particles it contains are suffi cient to affect its properties and behaviour. Plasma also refers to the liquid component of blood that holds the blood cells in suspension. This work references energy, thunder and blood, and uses a percussion instrument called a sinori.

  • Daria Baiocchi (Italy) studied piano, classical composition and electronic music. As a composer for electronic music, she has participated in national and international exhibitions in Argentina, Holland, Ireland, Germany, Italy, England, Hungary, USA, and Bulgaria, and took part in the Karlsruhe University project “Open Doors” that won in MitOst (Berlin, 2011). She was awarded the title “Cavaliere di Gaia” by the Italian Ministry, as special recognition for her piece “Piano Inside”.
