Miguelángel Clerc Parada

Miguelángel Clerc Parada (Chile/the Netherlands), is a researcher, performer and experimental music composer. His work explores the relations and tensions that arise between music and its sonic environment. Clerc Parada seeks to blur the artistic object and to achieve a multi-directed sensory experience that exposes the multiple forces that interact with the artistic space.

He has composed music for soloists and ensembles in Europe and the Americas, some as the Nieuw Ensemble, Ensemble Klang, Ensemble Modelo62, Het Nederlands Saxofoon Octet, Het Balletorkest (NL), Ensemble Taller de Música Contemporánea (CL), Schlagquartett Köln (DE), among others. 

Since the late 2000s he has regularly collaborated as a composer and sound designer in numerous contemporary dance productions and installations, with choreographers such as Astrid Boons, Pedro Goucha Gomes, Marina Mascarell, Dimo Milev, Loïc Perela, Ivan Perez and Heidi Vierthaler.

His works have been presented in diverse festivals and venues, some such as the Gaudeamus Festival, Julidans, HollandFestival, Muziekgebouw aan 't IJ, Paradiso, Theater Rotterdam, Nederlands Dans Theater, Korzo (NL), Dans I Nord, Opera of Gothenburg (SE), Mercat de les Flors,  Compañia Nacional de Danza (ES), Fringe Festival, London Biennale (UK), Dance Theater Heidelberg (DE), GAM (CL), among others.

Clerc Parada holds a PhD in artistic research from Leiden University and Orpheus Institute in Ghent.
