SERGIO MALTAGLIATI is an Italian Internet-based artist, works as a visual music composer and new media artist.


Maltagliati has always been deeply interested in a multimedia concept of art. His education, in both music and the visual arts, has placed him in the position to incorporate sign, colour, and sound into a unitary concept of multiple perception, through analogies, contrasts, stratifications, and associations.

In 1985 he made (with the painter Edoardo Salvi) a work for music, art of mime and zoo-anthropomorphous pictures entitled "Musica intorno alla Gabbia" (Music around the cage) whit 170 performers-actors.Aftewards, the visual and sonorous environment has been rebuilt at the "Spedale degli Innocenti" in Florence.

In 1986 he prepared an art exhibition called "Veder Sentire" (Seeing hearing), and following year at the Public Library of Monsummano he made "Viaggio tra suoni a colori" (Trip between sound and colours).

In 1989 he raised (with the painter Andrea Dami) "Revolution" a gigantic collage-score with a size of 96x48 m. involving 240 childrens as painters.

In 1990 at the "Teatro Manzoni" in Pistoia the first night of "K1-626M" for chorus-orchestra-tape and objects had place, transforming Mozart works in words-sounds-noises and colours. In 1991 he meets John Cage.

 

Since 1996 he is involved also (as a teorician and as an artist) in visual/music interactive webbased project.

 

Work in updating from 1997 and 2002: netOper@ e neXtOper@, netOper@ is online from 1997. The opera is an audio and visual work, with real and virtual on-line performaces. You are invited to participate by contributing original audio/visuals... netOper@ is based on flash interactivity audio/visual that you can play, to interact, you should position your mouse pointer over various parts of the drawing. NeXtOper@ It is “in progress” for the Web and GSM networks with cellular phones.

Now he uses a personal computer to set up interactive works, and programming new automated and generative visual-music software.
