Neuf Voix is a composer and sound artist whose work encompasses electronic and instrumental composition, live performances, and the creation of original sound works and diffusion structures. Most of his works are conceived by exploiting the qualities of multichannel sound projection to explore the deeper aspects of acoustic perception. Recurring elements in his compositions include sound synthesis, reworking of concrete sound samples and acoustic spatialization. Neuf Voix’s music emerges from the theories of 20th-century avant-garde music and composition, with interests in microtonality, dodecaphony, spectralism, experimentalism, concrete music and orchestral music. His compositions are characterized by a pronounced interest in alternative notation, timbral investigation, and the coexistence of multiple composition techniques within the same context.

Elvio Seta (aka Neuf Voix), after completing composition studies in 2012, in Italy, moved to Germany to deepen his research on contemporary German experimental music. In 2014, he returned to Italy to pursue two master’s degrees in advanced sound synthesis in Rome, under the guidance of Maestro Enrico Cosimi. He soon began working as a composer for various directors and European projects while developing his first live performances. These performances were structured like electronic orchestral directions, rich in analog machines and synthesizers managed simultaneously on stage. In the following years, his albums and performances became increasingly original and complex (including the design and assembly of a unique synthesizer in the world and an acousmatic sound system), gaining international recognition and appreciation. In a few years, he performed live at some of Europe’s most important venues, such as the Triennale in Milan, the Center for Contemporary Art KINDL in Berlin, the Auditorium San Fedele (a temple of international electronic music), the Venice Biennale Musica, the Paris Philharmonic, Palazzo Brancaccio in Rome and more.
