"Teresa Rampazzi and other under-represented figures in the field of music with electronic technology"
I have used archives for 20 years constructing histories of authors, works, centres and collaborations, and incorporating philology, oral history, ethnography with an emphasis on Sound Technology and Society Studies. During this long period, I happened to study names (and their related archives, or non-archives) that strangely did not appear in electroacoustic music history handbooks, despite the clear impact they had on techniques and technological developments, on countless people, on the creation of centers, festivals, pedagogical activities, or on the process of works, instruments, pieces, installations. Today I will focus on the figure of Teresa Rampazzi, pioneer of electronic music in Italy (analogue and computer music), and I will briefly introduce the figure of music assistants / computer music designers.
