New Professor for Composition RCSM Madrid

I can just announce that from September I’ll be joining the Real Conservatorio Superior de Música in Madrid as the new Professor of Composition. I’ll work with many other amazing Professors from September in this main institution in Spain (created in 1830). I think it will be a new challenging placement for composition (a wonderful new departament!) and for music. We will do our best!
I must leave the Conservatorio Superior de Música of Aragón (Saragossa) after 10 years. Thank you very much, it was a very nice time with wonderful colleagues and students.

Festival Musica Nova Helsinki


For guitar, resonance guitar, auraphon, and ensemble

[Worldpremiere / January 3th Festival Musica Nova Helsinki

Uusinta Ensemble Helsinki
Experimentalstudio des SWR Freiburg
Guitar: Petri Kumela
Electronic: Joachim Haas
Conductor: José M. Sánchez-Verdú
Festival Musica Nova Helsinki

The new piece Tombe de sommeil, which was commissioned from José-María Sánchez-Verdú y Uusinta Ensemble and Petri Kumela, examines the relationship between sound and space with the help of a virtual guitar and auraphon developed in SWR Experimental Studio in Freiburg. The playing of the guitar soloist is projected onto the ‘unmanned’ guitar as well as other instruments, and the result is a work that falls somewhere between installation and chamber music.
