Agnese Banti is an Italian sound designer and musician based in Bologna (Italy), working with sound in music, audiovisuals, performances and installations. In 2018 she started collaborating with Tempo Reale, an esteemed center for musical research, production and education in Florence (Italy). In the same year she co-founded the Electronic Music Collective at the Conservatory of Music “G. B. Martini” in Bologna, where she also graduated with the /krəʊk/ project, a group of sound installation created in partnership with the Department of Music Studies at the Ionian University of Corfù (Greece). Her work has been exhibited in Italy, Ireland, Greece, Portugal, the UK and the US. She is currently collaborating with the Italian composer Roberto Laneri on overtone singing projects. Agnese is always looking to add more spinning tops to her personal music instrument collection, with the goal to “play” them all.
Founded by Luciano Berio in 1987, Tempo Reale is one of the main Italian points of reference for research purposes, production and education in the field of new musical technologies. Since its beginning, the Center has been engaged in the realization of Berio's works, allowing it the possibility of working in the most prestigious musical contexts in the world. The development of a criteria of quality and creativity derived from the Center's experiences is reflected by its continuous work with both famous composers and artists as well as with young emerging musicians. The main topics of research reflect the multifaceted ideas that have always characterized the choices and initiatives of Tempo Reale: the conception of musical events of great depth, the study of electronic processing of "live" sound, the experience of interaction between sound and space and the synergy between creativity and performance and rigor. In addition to the activity of research in these areas, the Center regularly organises performances, events and projects in collaboration with various institutions in Tuscany involved in the fields of music, theater and dance, as well as promotes a wide network of educational exchanges.
