The school of Electronic music and Composition with new technologies is located at the 5th floor of Palazzo Pisani in campo Santo Stefano, sestriere San Marco.

Studios and lesson/study rooms have been converted from the former servants apartment. They are between 15 and 20 square meters and overlook either the second courtyard or the west-nortwest urban landscape. Foam-stuffed curtains improve soundproofing; audio cables run through on-wall wiremold and multiple ethernet sockets make a Gigabit LAN available in every room. Some outdated hardware and computers are scattered here and there.

The concert hall of the Conservatory was converted from the original ballroom of the early 18th century. The medium-size concert space is now equipped with an eight-channel d&b sound system, which can also take advantage of its double height architecture.

"The 8-channel sound system was one of the best I've had the privilege to use, and very well suited to the lovely space you have there."
