Massimo Vicentini was born in Rovereto (TN), Italy in 1979. He graduated with honor degree in 2005 at the Academy of Fine Arts in Bologna.
Besides his widespread interest in new media technologies, which he explores and exploits for his programming and designing freelance activities, koan01 focuses his artistic research on the audiovisual and interactive means. The relationship between audio and video represents the constant element of his production, through the variations of modes and subjects, which lead to live experimental works based on the analysis of the sound spectrum and its interactive visualization.
Koan01 participated in exhibitions and festivals both in Italy and abroad, sharing the stage with international artists such as di Ryoji ikeda, Studio Azzurro, Franco and Eva Mattes (aka 0100101110101101.org), Francisco Lopez, Christian Fennesz and more.
