Franz Rosati is a musician, digital artist and lecturer.
He uses digital technologies and custom software as the basis for his artistic production which is designed to embody different emanation from audiovisual concerts, screen based installations, software art and printed artworks.
For several years Franz Rosati has been exploring a broad-spectrum of aesthetic outputs ranging from procedural and generative wireframe minimalism and real time 3D renderings, from the creation of autonomous virtual creatures such as Machine and Structure or Pathline, to the exploration of dystopian immanent landscapes.
His production includes Digital Artworks such as Latentscape, Hyletics, Map of Null, Machine & Structure, exhibited in international events, festivals, in form of contemplative digital art which can be adapted to large screens as well as custom format video projections or ledwalls, and listed for galleries and platforms such as NIIO, Framed*, ARTPOINT, Dong Gallery, NEAL Digital Gallery, The OUTPUT, Sedition Art, Mana.
Audiovisual concerts, presented in musical and digital arts festivals such as Romaeuropa, Les Bains Numerique, 90dB, ADAF, Sònar CCCB or in notorious clubs oriented towards experimental music, electronics, techno such as OHM in Berlin, where the cinematic and narrative aspect blends with the extemporary one, bringing in each replication new and unpredictable elements, thanks to the use of procedural and interactive generation techniques for sounds and images.
Sound and music are central elements in his work. Quiet, dense and smooth when the artworks are exhibited as screen based installations, impetuous, loud, symphonic and rich of pulsating infrasonic bass and layers of granular textures during a concert setup. In all their manifestations, these sounds are always the result of a deep transfiguration process of acoustic sources coming from the realm of strings and plucked instruments with a special focus on baroque, classical and folk music.
Expert in the use of programming languages and environments such as C’74 Max and Derivative TouchDesigner, he develops his music and his artworks mainly with software developed personally, where technological experimentation, becomes a tool to enhance the artworks’ perceptual emanations adding organic layers.
He combines his artistic activity with the composition of music and sound design for theater and visual artworks, and teaching profession in interactive systems and sound design classes at IED European Institute of Design, Music Conservatories and Universities in Italy and abroad while lecturing workshops about art and technology, festivals and institutions.
