Daniele Bravi (Rome, 1974) started studying composition at the Conservatorio Santa Cecilia in Rome where he achieved his diploma with the maximum credits and distinction and the prize of the best diploma of the year.
After the diploma he studied with Ivan Fedele at the Conservatoire National de Règion in Strasbourg and with Salvatore Sciarrino, Pascal Dusapin, Wolgang Rihm ed Helmut
He has been selected by the comitè de lecture of the IRCAM and the Ensemble Intercontemporain to participate at the stage de composition et d'informatique musicale 2006.
His 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), Meditazione Prima 'in Eco' - Hommàge à Descartes (2002) for ensemble and the recent work Quartetto n.2 (2005) for string quartet performed by the Arditti quartet.
His music has been exhibited in several festivals: Musica in Strasbourg, Acanthes 2005 in Metz, Seconda Rassegna Di Musica Contemporanea Italiana in Peking, Musica Europa 2004 in Rome, Limerick (Ireland) and Tallinn (Estonia), A Tempo in Podgorica (Montenegro), Prima Rassegna Di Musica Contemporanea Italiana in Strasburg, Zilele Muzich Contemporane in Bacäu (Romania), Cantiere Internazionale D'Arte in Montepulciano, Nuovi Spazi Musicali in Roma, Festival Controcanto in Roma, Progetto Musica in Roma, Incontri a Palazzo in Viterbo, Orizzonti in Città di Chiusi and for the festival Musiké in Roma.
Three of his piano compositions were selected as obligatory material for The 10 th Piano Competition of Pietro Squartini (1998) and they were extracted in two works published by Bèrben.
Bravi's music has been performed by remarkable instrumentalists such as the Arditti string quartet, the Algoritmo ensemble conducted by Marco Angius, the World Youth Chamber
Orchestra (W.Y.C.O), the New Flora ensemble of Strasbourg, the Freon Ensemble, the clarinettists Guido Arbonelli, Roberta Gottardi, Jean-François Charles and the flutist Mario Caroli and trasmitted by Radio Rai Tre and Rai Sat. Daniele Bravi has recently received a commission by the ensemble Vortex to compose a new work that they will perform in Geneva on June 2007.
