Gerard Erruz, composer in residence during the Fall 2022

He will work on a new immersive electro-acoustic composition

Imatge inicial

Gerard Erruz is one of the composers selected in the Phonos Summer-Fall 2022 call for residencies, to work on his project La coreografia del so. His proposal focuses on the creation of an immersive electroacoustic musical work that works on the movement of sound based on ideas from dance choreography. Erruz wonders what ideas and conventions of dance could be used to give meaning to the musical discourse of an immersive work, or what types of sound movement can be used musically in current immersive audio systems. These questions will guide his research as well as the creation of his piece, which will be performed on the multi-channel audio system of the Sala Aranyó during the Phonos Residencies Festival, at the end of November 2022.

This project has received support from the OSIC grant for research and innovation in the fields of visual arts, architecture and design, performing arts, music and thought.

Gerard Erruz (Barcelona, 1993) is a composer and researcher. He studied composition at the Conservatori Superior del Liceu with professors Ramon Humet and Benet Casablancas.

He graduated in Physics from the University of Barcelona and completed a Master's degree in Sound and Music Technologies at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona.
