Italian composer Clara Iannotta (born 1983) on her work: "I am particularly interested in music as an existential, physical experience -- music should be seen as well as heard. This is one of the reasons why I sometimes prefer to talk about the choreography of the sound rather than about orchestration." Clara Iannotta's compositions are marked by a particular intrinsic 'theatricality.' Theatricality in the sense of the physicality of sound, its inner emotion, its excitement, its instrumental genesis out of the silence; the sound is not separated from the gesture that produces it, and is presented in the context of each different instrumental structure" --Dr. Barbara Barthelmes.
