Claudio F.Baroni is an active composer specializing in experimental music. His work can be described as a systematic approach to exploring the nature of sound, timbral qualities, and the strength of materials. In the last years, his music has focused on physical resistance, for which he collaborates closely with the musicians with whom he works. Baroni scrupulously avoids making specific aesthetic or cultural references in his composition, where he creates a closed sound universe with his own vision and physicality.
Baroni lives and works in Amsterdam, Netherlands.
Since 2002, Baroni has worked as a composer receiving numerous commissions and performances from, among others, Maze ensemble, The Barton Workshop, Slagwerkgroep Den Haag, Modelo62, Asko Kamenkoor (Netherlands), Champ d’Action (Belgium), Ensemble Integrales, (Germany), Prometeo quartet and Maurice quartet (Italy), as well as writing for ensembles more unusual instrumentations for specific projects and festivals.
Some of the honors that can be mentioned include the artistic residence of the Civitella Ranieri Foundation in Umbertide (Italy), as well as the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, MIT in Cambridge (USA) in 2015, in which he collaborates with the visual artist Adi Hollander in “The body imitates the landscape” (www.thebody.aholl-studio.org), released in 2019.
