Andrea Agostini studied piano, composition and electronic music in Bologna, his hometown, and subsequently attended several masterclasses in Italy and abroad, and the two-year course in composition and musical informatics at IRCAM, Paris — an experience that marked him deeply. He has composed numerous works of instrumental and electroacoustic music, which are regularly performed in the most important international festivals and venues, as well as sound installations and music for theatre and dance. He is a founding members of /nu/thing, a collective of Italian composers.

His curiosity for the totality of musical languages brought him to work in the domains of rock and improvisation, and to study non-Western musical practices. His music integrates these influences into a coherent mesh, without renouncing the potential of organization and complexity and the technical achievements that are specific of contemporary music as a genre.

He is also active in the domain of computer music: he is one of the developers of the software libraries for computer-aided composition bach: automated composer’s helperand cage; he has been Composer in Research at IRCAM in 2011 and 2013, and a research fellow at the Haute École de Musique in Geneva in 2013 and again at IRCAM in 2017; he is professor of computer music, music technology and electronic and computer-aided composition at the Conservatory of Turin and the Scuola Civica “Claudio Abbado”in Milan, and he regularly delivers workshops, presentations and masterclasses about his research and artistic work in the most important European and American institutions.
