Ángel Faraldo (Spain, 1980) is a composer, sound artist, improviser and digital instrument designer currently based in The Netherlands.
He is interested in processes that maximize minimal resources, as materialized in his ongoing cycle, The Feedback Study Series (comprising pieces for instruments and electronics, works with dance and installations), his digital synthesizer MISS (which he usually plays in improvised music contexts, either solo or in combination with different musicians –especially in his project with Yolanda Uriz, Ademen) or his interactive sonifications of Tanja Smit’s Textworks.
He has presented his work in festivals and venues throughout Europe and the United States; his music is released for free through various net-labels on the internet and his works involving computers are entirely based on free and open-source software.
He also teaches workshops on improvisation and electronic music with Pure Data, and collaborates as digital instrument designer or electronic music performer with projects and ensembles such as Modelo62 (NL), Fonos21 (ES), Medea Electronique (GR) and IOM (NL).
He has studied Guitar at the Royal Conservatoire of Madrid and holds a Master’s Degree in Sonology from the Royal Conservatoire of The Hague.
