Josep Sanz (España) (Barcelona 1977)
Este jóven compositor catalán participa con la obra IRR_Study#2, para 5 voces virtuales (2013/2014)
 
"...I started to think about a set of pieces to ask myself about what I did want to compose. This sort of tabula rasa, hides the eternal question about what is art and what is art for. I started then to write down a list of characteristics that music have to include. The list began with Irregular, Irrational, Irreverent, Irritating…. From this list came of course the name of the series: IrrStudies."

Nimrod Katzir (Israel) (Tel Aviv 1988)

Katzir participa con la obra Men Sing para 4 voces y electrónica en vivo (2013/2014) y no s comenta: "I'm a musician who works across a broad range of modern styles and genres. Instruments and performers inspire me, in particular electronic instruments. I produce my music with synthesisers and sequencers so when it's not the piece that inspires me then it's often the sound and characteristics of the devices alone.'

"I still feel connected to my classical music training background, although more contemporary musical fields inspire me these days. "

Evis Sammoutis (Chipre) (Nicosia 1979). Evis participa con la obra Sculpting Air para cinco voces (2013/2014)
 
"The characteristic that most defines me as a composer is my curiosity and my willingness to experiment. Greek mythology as well as natural phenomena is often source of inspiration. My aesthetic choices are rooted in spectral music and the quest for sound development. My work as a composer is deeply rooted in the tradition of both Western classical music sources but also that of my home country, Cyprus."
























Marianthi Papalexandri-Alexandri (Grecia) (Tesalónica 1974). Participa con la obra Untitled VI para 3 voces masculinas y objetos sonantes creados por Pe Lang (2013/2014).

Papalexandri-Alexandri is a Berlin based composer and sound artist.
 
"My work focuses on the production and reception of sound by reinventing the instrument as a sound-generator (object as instrument and instrument as object) as as well as the type of sound production and behaviour of the performer"




















Daniel Peter Biró (Hungría) (Victoria 1969. Participa con la obra

Al Ken kara para 7 voces (2013/2014).
 

"I am inspired by questions of history, memory and identity and how to translate answers to these questions via the musical work. I am inspired by composing itself, as composing is not a choice but a necessity. My musical roots come from many directions: Dufay, Bach, Beethoven, Mahler, Hungarian folk music, Jewish liturgical music and many others."
 























Brahim Kerkour (Marruecos) (Rabat 1980) Participa con la obra Intone  para 6 voces (2013).

"His work situates itself within a musical philosophy of sensory experience. At the heart of his approach is a commitment to the research of sound materials and their distribution within microscopic transformations of kinetic, tactile and spatial criteria. His music, conceived as a choreography of sound organisms, aims to sculpt spaces for personal experiences in listening."

 























Zeynep Gedizlioglu (Turquía) (Izmir 1977) . Participa con la obra Kelimeler para 5 voces (2013/2014) .
