Maurizio Martinucci (aka TeZ) is an Italian interdisciplinary artist and producer, living and working in Amsterdam, who has collaborated with, amongst others, Scanner, Kim Cascone, Taylor Deupree, Honor Harger, Luca Spagnoletti and Domenico Sciajno. He uses technology as a means to explore perceptual effects and the relationship between sound, light and space. He focuses primarily on generative compositions with spatialized sound for live performances and installations. In his works he adopts custom developed software and hardware, featuring original techniques of sonification and visualization to investigate vibrational phenomena. In recent years his research has extended to the ideation and creation of specific architectural structures and unconventional sound and light propagation methods to enhance immersivity. TeZ is also the brainfather of the ‘Optofonica’ platform for Synesthetic Media and Sound Spatialization and Laboratory for Immersive ArtScience, located in Amsterdam, together with his fellow artists Sonia Cillari, Evelina Domnitch and Dmitry Gelfand.
