Mirio Cosottini graduated from Florences Academy of Music in 1992 and subsequently studied under P. Thibaud, Luca Marzana and Emanuel Antoniucci. In 1999, he received a degree in Philosophy at the University of Florence.
He is one of the founding members of Timet, a 10-year collaboration that led to his contribution as a performer and composer on several of the group’s highly original works. From that time on he has dwelled further into composition, musical analysis and improvisation, and his wide ranging musical contributions encompasses disciplines across the spectrum such as dance, theatre, poetry and cinema. In 2005 he founded with Alessio Pisani the GRIM (Musical Improvisation Research Group). Since 2005 to 2010 teached improvisation at the Conservatory of Padova, Italy.
Now is doing a PhD in Philosophy of Music at the University of Trieste (ITALY).
