Composer and Mathematician
Daniele Ghisi studied composition at the G Donizetti conservatory in Bergmao under S. Gervasoni – and in 2007 received his diploma with honors. From 2008 to 2011 he participated in IRCAM’s Cursus program in composition and computer music, and in 2015 began a doctorate in music: research in composition, organized in collaboration with Sorbonne Université and IRCAM. Ghisi also holds a Master’s degree in mathematics from the University of Milan-Bicocca. Since 2010, he has developed, alongside composer Andrea Agostini, a library for computer-assisted composition “bach: automated composer’s helper”, for which they won the AFIM-Jeune Chercheur award and the A. Piccialli award in 2012. He is the co-founder of the blog nothing.eu, to which he contributes regularly.
