About

Isabella Forciniti is a Vienna based sound artist from Italy. Her work maneuvers within tensions evoked by the substantial aspects of sound and improvised music. Her intention is to explore deliberate states of sounds through examining relationships among interwoven sound surroundings, informal practice as well as their intrinsic abilities. Her work thrives to release streams of thoughts at the margins of the unknown.

She has created works for Austria’s radio station Ö1: for the art program Kunstradio, on Art’s Birthday as well as several contributions for the program Radiokolleg. She participated in workshops by Elliott Sharp, Yuri Landmann, Tomomi Adachi, Jennifer Walshe, Antye Greie-Ripatti and Cedrik Fermont. 

Isabella Forciniti cooperated with Martin Siewert, Ingrid Schmoliner, Veronika Mayer, Patrick K.H., Joni Void, Franz Hautzinger, Ryoko Akama, Yumiko Yoshimoto as well as other artists. As part of the festival Wien Modern she performed Treatise by Cornelius Cardews with the Webern Ensemble. The ensemble Wiener Gesellschaft, which was founded by Burkhard Stangl, Katharina Klement and Isabella Forciniti herself, also opened the Noche de los Muertos hosted by Wien Modern. Forciniti was invited to different music festivals such as Time in Music (FI), Sonic Territories (AT), Klangfestival (AT), Literaturfestival-Schlierbach (AT) and Darmstädter Ferienkurse (GER). 

She holds a degree in communication sciences focused on sociology and multimedia. In 2019 she finished the university program Computer Music and Electronic Media (ELAK) at the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna. Currently she studies computer music and composition at the Anton Bruckner Private University focussing on digital music performance and improvised music. Her favorite sociologist is Zygmunt Bauman and her favorite meal remains her grandmother’s homemade pasta.
