Manoli Moriaty is an Athens-born composer, performer, researcher, and curator. Currently based in Manchester, UK, his practice is informed by themes of symbiotic relationships and collective action as conceptual framework towards facilitating environments of synergy between distinct artists, media, and disciplines. Through methodologies pertinent to data sonification, re-appropriation of technology, and human-machine interactions, he regularly collaborates with physical performers and creative technologists towards creating works across a range of formats and disciplines: live collaborative performance art, interactive audiovisual installations, fixed-media acousmatic compositions, and live electronics performances.
His works have been presented at international new music concerts, performance arts festivals, and academic conferences, such as ICMC, SMC, MANTIS, Supersonic Festival, Electric Nights, Surge Festival, New York City Electroacoustic Music Festival, Beijing New Dance Festival, and the Audiovisual Arts Festival of the Ionian Academy. He has performed for the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra, and composed live scores for Jim Cartwright‘s Burning Bright and Teresia Björk‘s Vi-We-Nous. Awards include funding by Arts Council England and IdeasTap towards artistic activities, and by Sound and Music for his curatorial work within the sonic-arts collective Metanast. Manoli is member of the Hellenic Electroacoustic Music Composers Association (HELMCA) and Irish Sound Science and Technology Association (ISSTA), and has been fortunate to study composition with Stephen Davismoon, Alan Williams, and Craig Vear. He is currently completing doctoral research on polydisciplinary performance practice, Symbiotic Synergies, at the University of Salford, supervised by Jo Scott and Stephen Kilpatrick.
