Enore Zaffiri was born in Turin on March 29, 1928. He studied in Turin at the
"Conservatorio G. Verdi", taking a diploma in composition, choral music and
pianoforte, and subsequently in Paris at the "Conservatoire National" with
Tony Aubin. He perfected his piano studies with Guido Agosti in Siena at the
"Accademia Musicale Chigiana". From 1954 to 1982 he held the Chair of
General Music Culture at the "Conservatorio G. Verdi" in Turin.
As a composer he won various awards. In 1964, he turned his interest to
electronic music and founded SMET (Studio di Musica Elettronica di Torino)
which made its headquarters in Turin at the Conservatorio, and he also
became a lecturer in this subject. Zaffiri’s first objective was to overcome
the historical elementary principles which coordinated the relationships
between the sounds of traditional musical language for acoustic
instruments and then concentrate his efforts on electronic means,
searching for new sound perspectives originating from a structural
principle based on the Euclidian plane geometrical figure by which means
the various sound parameters can be coordinated and the formal and
spatial dimension extracted. In 1965, together with other operators in the 
visual field, he set up the Studio di Informazione Estetica and started an
interdisciplinary research into sound and visual phenomena. The main
objective of the research was to generate the elements relevant to the
sound and visual fields from a single basic structure. The extreme limit of
the formal rigorism was achieved in 1968 with the project Musica Per 
Un Anno (released by Die Schachtel) , the purpose of which was the
sonorization of environments. From 1970, Zaffiri turned his attention
towards the live performance of electronic music. He combined electronic
sound with the human voice - sometimes crossing the border into total
theatre (Il Giuoco Dell’Oca from the novel by E. Sanguineti and Raptus 
based on a text by M. Châtel). In the period, the first scores for synthesizers
appeared, permitting the live performance of pieces specifically written for
this instrument. At the end of the seventies, he extended his research into
visuals to the video, maintaining the interdisciplinary process using the
instruments that technology offered and which represented, for the author,
the means and support for what he intended to express. At the end of the
eighties, he produced the video L’Arte Nella Storia published by
Cooperativa Books and Video in Turin.
