Michele Della Ventura

Michele Della Ventura, si è diplomato brillantemente in pianoforte sotto la guida di Francesco Bencivenga.
Parallelamente agli studi musicali, si è laureato in Discipline Tecnologiche con il massimo dei voti e la lode, ottenendo una borsa di studio, e successivamente ha conseguito un Master di II livello in E-learning (E-learning: metodi, tecniche e applicazioni) presso l’Università Tor Vergata di Roma, risultando primo del corso con la Tesi “Apprendimento e nuove tecnologie”.
Inizia gli studi di composizione con Francesco Rolle a Padova e segue un corso per l’approfondimento della musica contemporanea sotto la guida di Bruno Bettinelli a Milano (dal 1994 al 1996) di cui esegue sempre le musiche in concerto; contemporaneamente vince diversi concorsi nazionali ed internazionali di esecuzione musicale che gettano le basi per un’intensa attività concertistica.
I suoi interessi nella ricerca riguardano:
- i rapporti tra musica e matematica con particolare riferimento agli studi sull’intelligenza artificiale nel campo dell’analisi computerizzata della musica tonale;
- l’utilizzo delle tecnologie web per la didattica.
È autore di articoli pubblicati su riviste scientifiche internazionali e di libri per la didattica nelle scuole superiori (presenti anche al Salone Internazionale del Libro di Torino 2012).
È il revisore di articoli e membro di comitati scientifici di Conferenze Internazionali.
È stato invitato come relatore in Conferenze Internazionali: Italia, Austria, Canada, Cina, Francia, Germania, Giappone, Inghilterra, Repubblica Ceca, Romania, Singapore, Spagna, Stati Uniti (Baltimora, Boston, Las Vegas, New York, Washington).
È insegnante d’informatica musicale nei corsi Universitari presso Accademie e Conservatori di Musica e di Tecnologie Musicali nei Licei ad Indirizzo Musicale.
