Carla Scaletti is an experimental composer and entrepreneur, designer of the Kyma sound design language and co-founder of Symbolic Sound Corporation. Each of her compositions originates from a “what-if” hypothesis and involves live Kyma electronics interacting with acoustic sources and environments. Educated at the University of Illinois (DMA, MCS), she studied composition with Salvatore Martirano, John Melby, Herbert Brün and Scott Wyatt and computer science with Ralph Johnson, one of the Design Patterns “Gang of Four.” She has been guest lecturer at Centre de Crèation Musical Iannis Xenakis (CCMIX) in Paris, and co-organizes the annual Kyma International Sound Symposium, this year based on the theme: Picturing Sound.
In addition to her work in software development and music composition, she has a special interest in scientific data sonification, and some of her work with physicist Lily Asquith on data from the Large Hadron Collider at CERN influenced the musical score she created for choreographer Gilles Jobin’s piece QUANTUM.
