Victor Lazzarini (born 1969 in Londrina, Brazil) is a composer and computer music researcher living in Ireland. After studying music in the local conservatory, Victor went on to study for his B.Mus. (Composition) at the State University of Campinas (UNICAMP), where he graduated in 1993. As an undergraduate, he studied with Almeida Prado, Damiano Cozzella, Livio Tragtenberg and Raul do Valle. In 1993 he was awarded a scholarship to pursue his Doctorate at the University of Nottingham, where he studied with Nick Sackman. In 1997, he went to work as a post-doctoral researcher at the Universidade Estadual de Londrina and in 1998 he was appointed Lecturer in Music at the National University of Ireland, Maynooth.

At the NUIM, where he is now a Senior Lecturer, he created the Music Technology Laboratory and introduced postgraduate and undergraduate degrees in Computer Music and Music Technology. Victor is also associated with the new music ensemble ElectroAcoustic Revue (EAR), dedicated to electroacoustic music.


Writing instrumental, electroacoustic and mixed works, Victor has an eclectic style, varying from Jazz-inspired pieces (The Trane Thing, 2000), acousmatic (Voices Inside, 1996, Mouvements, 2003) to large orchestral (Magnificat, 1996) and chamber music (Time-Lines I-IV, 2003-6). His music is available from the Contemporary Music Centre, Dublin.


As a researcher, his work is mostly dedicated to Musical Signal Processing and Computer Music Languages and he is one of the developers of Csound and the Sound Object (SndObj) Library.
