Carolina Valli

Born in 1994 in Milan, I came to the world of music thanks to my cellist grandfather.When I was 12 I started studying classical guitar and since that day I went on with my musical interests.
I continued my musical studies and at the same time approach me to the world of audio recording, linked to the passion for classical concerts, with the intent to attend a course that leads me to work in the world of post-production and audio recording. After an high school diploma in languages, I began my three-year degree in Electronic Music in Milan Conservatory where I discovered new potentialities related to music programming softwares.
At the end of my three-year course and after attending a course in Sonic interaction design, I decided to write a thesis on assistive music technology and started collaborating with a rehabilitation center that brought me, thanks to my knowledge, to create a suitable musical instrument to people with limited motor skills.
Currently I'm attending the last year of the Biennio di Musica Elettronica in Milan.
