Visible and audible layers of composition

Lecture of Iñigo Giner Miranda about history of instrumental theatre and his own works.

Iñigo Giner Miranda was born in 1980 in Bilbao (Spain). He studied piano under the direction of Albert Nieto in Vitoria, then moved to Amsterdam in 2002. He pursued his composition studies there with Wim Henderickx as his main teacher, with a grant from the basque government. He later completed his Master studies at the UdK Berlin with Daniel Ott and Elena Mendoza, researching on the implementation of extramusical materials in the musical discourse, a project for which he received a DAAD / la Caixa scholarship. He has received several prizes and distinctions in different competitions and received commissions from different festivals and ensembles (such as Münchener Musiktheater Biennale 2012, Berlin Senate or Alicante Festival 2011). His work integrates visual, textual and performative elements into the musical discourse, sometimes working with musicians and sometimes with performers/actors. He is a founding member of the DieOrdnungderDinge Ensemble (the order of things), an ensemble formed by actors/musicians specialized in creating scenic concert-events. He is equally active as a pianist in the field of Musiktheater / Theatre, performing at venues like Schauspielhaus Zürich, Schauspielhaus Köln, Thalia Theater Hamburg, HAU Berlin or Teatro Real among others. The lecture came about with the support of Goethe Institute Budapest.
