Daniele Bravi (Rome 1974)

Daniele Bravi's music is based on an accurate research of tone colours which he achieves by using classical instruments and on the manipulation of the concept of time: the extremely conscious use of the sound material enables him to control impressions of the flow of time.
Daniele Bravi's musical ideas are connected with philosophy, mathematics, physics and architectural principals like on La Curva di Lìgaso (2004) for piano, Rifrazioni Lontane (2004) for orchestra (first price at the Musica Europa-2004 competition), the Quartetto n.2
(2005) for string quartet performed by the
Arditti quartet and Meditazione Prima 'in Eco' - Hommàge à Descartes (2002) for ensemble that has been selected by the Italian National Commitee of Music - CIDIM and by the International Association of Music Centre - IAMIC to rappresent the italian contemporary music during the concert/conference IAMIC 2007 (June 2007) in Wellington – New Zealand.
