Arranz, Ángel

Website: Ángel Arranz site ; The DK projection

Ángel ARRANZ is a composer of instrumental and electronic music, focused on the development of interchangeable sound-based structures between instruments and electronics through spatialization. His music explores time as a constructional matter through mathematics, correlated spatiality in physical, structural, notational and DSP domains and organicism by means of the morphology of natural forms and fractal geometry.

During his formation in Spain, he was a private student of Alberto Posadas. After earning with honors a Degree in Composition at High Conservatory of Music of Salamanca, from 2006 on he fixed his residency in The Netherlands, accomplishing with distinction in 2008 a Master in Sonology at the Royal Conservatory of The Hague. He received lessons from Paul Berg [algorithmic composition], Kees Tazelaar [voltage control techniques and analog studio], Johan van Kreij [Max/MSP], Paul Jeukendrup [sound engineering] and Richard Barrett [advanced composition]. Since 2009 Ángel Arranz occupies the position of Research Associate at the Institute of Sonology of The Hague and PhD Candidate at the University of Salamanca dissertating, between both institutions, on new technology applied to instrumental composition and electronic music.

Ángel Arranz develops since 2006 an innovative non-harmonic compositional system denominated sinusoidal deconstruction, whose efficacy is comparable to the diverse worldwide classical systems. The system allows joining and combining various instrumental parts into an organic whole given a composition, whatever is the number and configuration of its parts. Subsequent Interdisciplinary investigations on the relationship between music and architecture have orientated him to create various series of compositions inspired by/based on/worked within avant-garde buildings, designed by bureaus such as Richard Rogers Partnership and KonkritBlu Arquitectura.

In 2012 his 8-channel work Extrusion was selected to represent the European Federation in China at the Musicacoustica Festival in Beijing. In 2013, the prestigious Musicadhoy dedicated a full portrait concert in Madrid.

His pieces have been performed in The Netherlands, Italy, Portugal, South Korea, China and Spain. Ángel Arranz founds in 2009 The DK <projection>, an independent multi[inter]disciplinary collective conformed by international members, whose creative stimulus is the use of technology as a vehicle of musical and artistic transformation.
