Since 2011 Ciciliani is performing a new solo program, consisting of a number of compositions for various electronics setups, projections, lighting and laser. Most recently, he added "Intersection" for live-electronics and live-video to the repertoire.
In 2013 he has toured with an audiovisual solo program in the West of the USA, starting in San Diego up to Montana.
Starting in 2000, for almost 10 years Ciciliani's primary performance medium was the mixing board 'sans instruments', using only feedback from the machine itself.
He has built a reputation of a virtuoso of the abstruse practice of playing a no-input mixer. Unlike the minimalist layerings that the no-input mixer became known for, Ciciliani gives very textured performances, allowing the cross- interference of feedback from the circuits grow into complex patterns. He performed on the no-input mixer with Fred Frith, Gordon Mumma, Roberto Fabbriciani, Axel Dörner and Sachiko M, amongst others. In March 2008 the Amsterdam-based label Evil Rabbit Records (www.evilrabbitrecords.eu) released Marko Ciciliani’s solo no-input mixer CD "81 matters in elemental order”. The CD consists of 81 tracks -- of 4 up to 90 seconds in length -- that should be played back in shuffle mode. Each time the CD is played back, the composition's elements are therefore put in a new, unique order. The tracks are poetic translations of the molecular characteristics of chemical elements, adjusted for the untamed circuits of the mixing board.
In 2009 Ciciliani stopped performing with the no-input mixer.
