Franco Evangelisti (born January 21, 1926 in Rome, died there January 28, 1980), was an Italian composer specifically interested in the scientific theories behind sound.

Evangelisti abandoned engineering studies in order to dedicate himself to musical composition. In 1948 he became a student of Daniel Paris in Rome and Harald Genzmer at the Musikhochschule of Freiburg, where he pursued a course in advanced composition. From 1952 to 1960 he took part in the Darmstädter Ferienkurse für Neuen Musik, where he had the opportunity of meeting Werner Meyer-Eppler of the University of Bonn, thanks to which he began to be interested in electronic music. At the invitation of Herbert Eimert, in 1956 he worked in the electronic studio of the Westdeutscher Rundfunk in Cologne.

In 1957, the orchestral conductor Hermann Scherchen invited him to work in the Studio of Experimental Electroacoustics of UNESCO in Gravesano, where he became involved with biophysics and explored the possibility of directly translating brain impulses into sonic vibrations.

In 1958, together with Karlheinz Stockhausen and Luigi Nono, he inaugurated the Experimental Studio of the Polish Radio in Warsaw, where in the following year he was invited to hold some seminars on electronic music. In 1959 he was brought by the promoters, to the International Week of New Music in Palermo. The following year, together with other musicians such as Francisco Pennisi and Aldo Clementi, he founded the Nuova Consonanza association and, later, the Gruppo di Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza. « hide
