Donnarumma Marco
New media and sonic artist, performer and teacher, Marco Donnarumma was born in Italy and is based in London.
Weaving a thread around biomedia research, musical and theatrical performance, participatory practices and subversive coding, Marco looks at the collision of critical creativity with humanized technologies. His biophysical system Xth Sense won the first prize in the Margaret Guthman Musical Instrument Competition and was named the 2012 “world’s most innovative new musical instrument” by the Georgia Tech Center for Music Technology, US. 

Marco has performed and spoken in 40 countries including US and South America, Europe, India, China, South Korea and Australia. His works have been selected at leading art events (ISEA, Venice Biennale, WRO Biennale), specialized festivals (FILE, Sonorities, Némo, Mapping, Piksel, Re-New, Laboral, EMAF) and major academic conferences (NIME, ICMC, Pure Data Convention, Linux Audio Conference@Stanford CCRMA, SICMF).

His projects have been reviewed on BBC, Reuters, Wired, Create Digital Music, We Make Money Not Art, Rhizome, Weave, El Pais, Digicult, and appeared in the book “New Art/Science Affinities” (CMU and Studio for Creative Enquiry, US). He was artist in residence at STEIM (NL), Inspace (UK), and the National School of Theatre and Contemporary Dance (DK). His work has been funded by the European Commission, British Council, Creative Scotland, New Media Scotland, and the Danish Arts Council.

Currently, Marco is a PhD student for the Embodied Audio Visual Interaction (EAVI) Research Group at Goldsmiths, University of London, supervised by Professor Atau Tanaka, and fully funded by the European Research Council (ERC).

In the last two years Marco has taught over thirty workshops for international academic institutions and media labs on a regular basis, including: Harvestworks, New York, US; SESC Sao Paulo, Brasil; UNAM and CENART Mexico; NK, LEAP Berlin; Newcastle CultureLab, University of London, Glasgow Centre for Contemporay Arts in the UK; UPR Universidad de Puerto Rico; Gotland University Institute for New Media Art and Technology in Sweden; Academy of Fine Arts of Brera and Pierluigi da Palestrina Conservatory in Italy.

Since 2007 is a director for the LivePerformers Meeting, a leading annual gathering of international new media artists. He is an active member of SLE, Sound Lab Edinburgh, and an associate at CIRCLE, a group of academics, researchers and creative practitioners based in Edinburgh.
