Saxofón Latinoamericano

La investigación sobre el saxofón en el contexto de la creación musical contemporánea de América Latina ha sido una preocupación permanente del trabajo artístico y docente del Dr. Miguel Villafruela, con el propósito permanente de ampliar el repertorio para el instrumento e incentivar la motivación hacia la creación de obras para el saxofón de parte de los compositores latinoamericanos.

En ese sentido, esta publicación Saxofón Latinoamericano tiene entre otros objetivos, a difundir la creación de los compositores latinoamericanos para saxofón e informar todo lo relacionado con el repertorio para el instrumento, existente en esta región del mundo.

Esta página es la primera edición para Internet que aborda el tema del saxofón en América Latina y a la vez se convierte en la actualización y renovación constante de su libro El Saxofón en la Música Docta de América Latina.

Datos Compositor

Born in Curitiba, Brazil, Felipe de Almeida Ribeiro (1980) is a composer of instrumental and electroacoustic music. He began studying composition in 2002 at the Universidade Federal do Paraná (Brazil) with composer Rodolfo Coelho de Souza. After writing compositional studies for instruments and for computer, he began a master's program in 2006 under the guidance of Dániel Péter Biró at the University of Victoria (Canada). Still in Victoria, British Columbia, he studied electronic music in diverse courses with radio-drum performer Andrew Schloss. During his masters, he had also the chance to work with American composer Gordon Mumma, and in 2008 moved to Buffalo NY in order to start a PhD at the State University of New York at Buffalo (USA) with Cort Lippe.

He concentrated his research on writing music for ensemble and computer, resulting in works for live-electronics, acousmatics, as well as with computer-assisted-composition software. During his student years, he had the opportunity to participate in different workshops/summer courses with great composers that deeply contributed to develop his aesthetic and poetics, such as Roger Reynolds, Matthias Pintscher, Helmut Lachenmann, Steve Reich, Hilda Paredes, Brian Ferneyhough, Philippe Manoury, Charles Wuorinen, Murray Schaefer, Chaya Czernowin, Georges Aperghis, Wolfgang Rihm, Manos Tsangaris, Isabel Mundry, Klaus Lang, Jon Appleton, and many more.

His music has been performed in South America, North America and Europe, such as June in Buffalo (USA), Matrix10 ExperimentalStudio (Germany), Bartók Festival (Hungary), Going North (England, Canada), SiMN (Brazil), Bienal Música Hoje (Brazil), Internationale Ferienkurse für Neue Musik Darmstadt (Germany), Banff Center (Canada), VI Festival Contemporâneo Pelotas (Brazil), Ignite!

He is also part of the Universidade Estadual do Paraná faculty (Brazil), teaching courses on Composition, Electroacoustic Music, and Musical Acoustics, and part-time instructor at the Graduate Studies Program of the Universidade Federal do Paraná (Brazil). He is also member of the LaMuSA (Laboratory of Music, Sonology, and Audio), a laboratory dedicated to the research and study of music and technology, and director of the new music research group Núcleo Música Nova.
