Silvia Tarozzi (1975) is a violinist, performer and improviser. She obtained her diplomas at the Bologna and Rovigo conservatories (Italy), specialising under Master Enzo Porta (with whom she went on to establish a violin duo for a short and lucky period). Subsequently, she moved to Paris, where she studied with Jeanne Marie Conquer (Ensemble Intercontemporain) and Patrick Bismuth (baroque violin). Her research on sound and instrumental gestures, fuelled by her own experience as an improviser, finds expression through several collaborations with composers. She writes music for her own musical projects.
