Ángel Faraldo, new Artistic Director of Phonos

Phonos project - UPF - Tue, 04/03/2018 - 13:54

Ángel Faraldo joins Phonos as Artistic Director.

Active as an experimental music maker, Ángel Faraldo extends his work with sound installations, site-specific actions and sound design for dance and opera. He is interested in processes that maximise minimal resources, developing a critical and ecological perspective of live-electronic music, as materialised in his cycle The Feedback Study Series, his digital synthesiser MISS or his approach toward the no-input-mixer. Furthermore, he has done significant labor performing and producing live-electronic music for soloists and ensembles such as Frédérique Cambreling, Naoko Yoshino, Ensemble Sillages, Placa Base Col·lectiu Instrumental, and especially as a member of Vertixe Sonora Ensemble since its foundation. He has studied at the Royal Conservatoire of Music (Madrid) and the Institute of Sonology (The Hague), obtaining his PhD degree from the Music Technology Group at Pompeu Fabra University (Barcelona).

By adding this position, Phonos wants to boost its activities and open new perspectives in the areas of education, research, creation and promotion.

Akiko Hatakeyama

CCRMA-Stanford University - Sat, 03/17/2018 - 23:17
Date:  Sat, 05/05/2018 - 7:30pm - 9:00pm Location:  CCRMA Stage Event Type:  Concert Akiko Hatakeyama is a composer/performer of electroacoustic music and intermedia. She explores the boundaries between written music, improvisation, electronics, real-time computer-based interactivity, and visual media. Storytelling, memories, and nature play an important role in Akiko's work, and she most often finds beauty in simplicity.  Akiko's practice focuses on realizing her ideas of relations between the body and mind into intermedia composition, often in conjunction with building customized instruments/interfaces. It is a form of nonverbal communication with her inner self and with the environment, including the audience. By somatically actuating perceptions with sound, light, and haptic objects, her ideas of relations between the body and mind become embraceable. FREE Open to the Public
