About Alberto PosadasAlberto Posadas, born 1967 in Valladolid, has explored the relationship between nature, mathematics and music, as well as with other artistic disciplines. For years he has researched the instruments at a micro level, developing what he calls "micro-instrumentation".
In 2002, he won the Audience Award at the Ars Musica Bruxelles festival and, in 2011, the Spanish Premio Nacional de Música. He was selected by the reading panel at IRCAM (2003/04) where he has regularly been composer in residence, as he had been at the Internationales Künstlerhaus Villa Concordia in Bamberg (2014) and the Wissenschaftskolleg in Berlin (2016/17).
Festivals and concert series including Musica Strasbourg, Festival ManiFeste (Paris), Donaueschinger Musiktage, Wittener Tage für neue Kammermusik, the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival and Ultraschall (Berlin) have programmed concerts devoted to his music.
