Biography

Teresa Rampazzi was born in Vicenza, Italy, and studied piano as a child, then continued her studies at the Milan Conservatory and graduated with a diploma in composition. She lived for a while in Verona, and in 1956 moved with her husband to Padua where she became a member of the Trio Bartók and the Circolo Pozzetto music ensembles.

Rampazzi developed an interest in avante-garde music and attended Ferienkurse Darmstadt where she heard the Eimert sound generator. She sold her piano and with Ennio Chiggio formed the NPS Group (Nuove Proposte Sonore), an experimental collective to research sound generation with analogue devices. (Her husband bought back the piano.)

She continued to work with Chiggio until 1968 and then took a teaching position in 1972 as professor of electronic music at the Padova Conservatory where she continued to work on tone research applying the Bessel functions and to publish professional articles on electronic music. She worked internationally at the Utrecht Electronic studio, at Catholic University in Washington, at the electromusic studio in Stockholm, at the department of computer music at the University of Pisa and at the CSC Computer Music Center in Padova.

After her husband died in 1984, Rampazzi moved to Assisi and then to Bassano, where she continued to compose. She died in Bassano del Grappa in 2001.
