Studied acoustics in Chile where he started composing and performing music for experimental theatre and ran several performance projects with actors and musicians. In 1999 he moved to Denmark to undertake post-graduate studies in sound perception at Aalborg University focusing on spatial sound and timbre perception. He studied composition at the Carl Nielsen Academy with Anders Brødsgaard where he composed and performed various compositions and took part in several interdisciplinary projects with visual artists. For several years he worked as a research fellow at the Acoustic Technology unit of the Danish Technical University in projects exploring the directional characteristics of musical instruments for room auralizations in collaboration with the musical acoustics team at IRCAM.
In 2005 he pursued his composition studies at the University of York in England with Ambrose Field and Roger Marsh focusing on electroacoustic composition and music theatre. His works have been performed in festivals and events in more than 30 countries across Europe, Asia and the Americas and received, among others, the first prize at the 2008 Citta di Udine International Composition Competition, the first prize at the 2012 Radio France International Quartz prize, the first prize at the 2013 Musica Nova competition in Prague and the first prize at the 2016 Citta di Udine International Composition Competition in Udine, Italy. He also collaborated with Neil Sorrell in the music for the BAFTA-award winning radio play The Glass Man commissioned by BBC radio 4. His research work has been published in various peer-reviewed journals like Organised Sound, Computer Music Journal, Acta Acustica and the Journal of Music, Technology and Education.
Felipe is currently a Senior Lecturer at the Universidad Austral in Chile, where he is developing a pilot research project exploring creative applications of spatial sound in contemporary dance funded by the Chilean National Commission for Scientific Research and Technology (CONICYT). His research interests involve critical listening, field recordings, spatial sound, electronic music and interdisciplinary collaborations. His music is released by the British label Sargasso.
Luciano Giambastiani makes use of clarinets in different registers to provide a sound world that is based on the broad spectrum of instrumental techniques associated with contemporary music, passing through materials defined by pitch, multiphonics, keyed percussion and the classic rough sonorities of the frullatos.
Rodrigo Castellanos contributes the electroacoustics through digital processing, where the aural richness is not always easy to explain, but certain techniques may be recognized, such as sampling and transposition of the sound captured by the computer, synthesis, delay and reverb among others, all in real time.
Luciano Giambastiani (1978): Luciano is an interdisciplinary artist, musician and Argentine composer from the province of Jujuy. He is trained as a clarinetist and composer at the ESM de Jujuy, Argentine Catholic University and Manuel de Falla Conservatory.
