Marko Ciciliani locates himself artistically between instrumental chamber music and electronica/Noise. He composes for a wide range of instruments, often using live electronics. Among his main artistic interests is the correspondence between light and sound, and in 2005 he founded Bakin Zub with which he realizes multimedia projects. Marko's work may be characterized within the experimental tradition as combining contrasting materials to produce unpredictable changes and rich timbres.
