Teresa Rampazzi created ambient music, long before Brian Eno conceived his idea of Ambient 1: Music for Airports in 1978. Rampazzi was an active and prominent figure in the Italian electronic music scene. Yet until today her work is hardly known, and her music has barely entered our cultural memory. As a former avant-garde pianist, Teresa Rampazzi decided to devote herself to electronic analogue music at the age of 50. In 1965 she co-founded the N.P.S. Group (Nuove Proposte Sonore), an experimental collective to research sound generation with analogue devices. Furthermore, Rampazzi founded and directed the CSC Computer Music Center (Centro di Sonologia Computazionale) at the University of Padua, where also Luigi Nono und Luciano Berio frequently worked. She published professional articles on electronic music and worked internationally: at the Utrecht Electronic studio, at the Catholic University in Washington and the EMS in Stockholm.
