Jacopo Baboni Schilingi comes from an « art music » background in which writing and interactivity are paramount. He is one of the most representative composers of his generation, and recognized as such in conservatories and classical concert halls. In 2018 he was residence artist for the Grand Palais exhibition Artists & Robots (Paris from April 5th to July 9th 2018).

His work with French-born American visual artist Arman in the 2000s initiated a series of creative collaborations with Miguel Chevalier, Jean-Pierre Balpe, Alain Fleischer, Elias Crespin, Sarkis, and others.
