Maurizio Martinucci (aka TeZ) is an Italian interdisciplinary artist and independent researcher living and working in Amsterdam. He has collaborated with, among other, Adi Newton, Scanner, Kim Cascone, Saverio Evangelista, Taylor Deupree, Sonia Cillari, Chris Salter, Honor Harger, Luca Spagnoletti and Domenico Sciajno.
He uses technology as a means with which to explore perceptual effects and the relationship between sound, light and space. He focuses primarily on generative compositions with spatialised sound for live performances and installations. In his works he adopts custom developed software and hardware, featuring original sonification and visualization techniques to investigate and magnify subtle 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 and multisensory perception.
TeZ is also the brainfather of the ‘Optofonica’ platform for Synesthetic Art-Science, located in Amsterdam.
