Chiara is a Melbourne-based music composer, producer and DJ born and raised in Torino, Italy.
Her artistic appreciation and blend of music disciplines allow her to produce an eclectic range of musical outcomes.
Classically trained in piano in Italy and later exposed to electronic music after moving to Melbourne in 2004, Chiara has since moved into a well respected position in the Melbourne Techno movement through her dedication to a refined DJing technique and production of electronic music. This eventually led to extra studies in sound art and design at RMIT University, extending her interests into composition and sound design for screen.
Chiara’s work now ranges across composing and producing music and sound design for film and TV commercials, creating electronic music for live performance, composing soundscapes for immersive environments and art installations, and the experimental use of field recordings with analogue and digital synthesis.
Over her DJ career, Chiara acts as Chiara Kickdrum, and has performed at a range of venues across Melbourne, supporting international DJs such as Jimmy Edgar, Marcel Dettmann, Nina Kraviz, Dopplereffekt, DJ Stingray and Underground Resistance, as well as appearing at Pitch Music Festival, Melbourne Music Week, Meredith Music Festival and Dark Mofo in Hobart, and composing music for fashion designer Dion Lee at Melbourne Fashion Week.
As a composer, Chiara is currently freelancing as well as doing work with music studios in both Melbourne and Sydney.
Chiara's latest soundtrack was done for short film All These Creatures, which won Palme D'Or at the Cannes International Film Festival 2018.
