Maurizio Martinucci is an Italian interdisciplinary artist and researcher currently based in Amsterdam. He uses light, sound spatialisation, and binaural beats as a means to perform and explore perceptual effects in the relationship between audio, sight, and space. TeZ is also the founder of the Amsterdam’s Optofonica platform for immersive art-science.
Martinucci’s research includes the study of subtle vibrational phenomena with the use of custom developed technology, and his experimental performances and installations target perceptual human sensitivities. Academically he attended a school for computer music programmers. He has been composing music since the late 1980s, releasing records with various projects like M.S.B., DoseZero, and Nukleus.
As of 2003, TeZ has been leading the generative painting collaboration dubbed Proquadro, and in 2006, he launched the Optofonica platform for Synesthetic Media and Sound Spatialization, which now showcases at museums and festivals around the world. TeZ frequently collaborates with international artists such as ClockDVA’s Adi Newton, Scanner, Kim Cascone, Saverio Evangelista, Taylor Deupree, and more.
