Beatriz Ferreyra is an Argentina-born, France-based composer. According to her biography, Since 1970, she has been working as a free composer. She also worked upon instrumental researches in collaboration with Bernard Baschet on his Structures sonores (1970). In 1975, she became member of Collège des compositeurs created by the Groupe de musique expérimentale de Bourges (GMEB). She worked at Dartmouth College in Hanover, USA (1976) and realized music for musicotherapy (1973-77). More recently (1998), she curated a serie of musique concrète concerts at Centre d’études et de recherches Pierre Schaeffer in Montbelliard, France.
Now she signed to Lawrence English label ROOM40. Echos+ is the new EP which will be out on March 27th. According to the press release, it brings together three of Ferreyra’s most engaging compositions. Each of the works are deeply personal, but transcend that position, effortlessly welcoming us inside them. They collectively chart out a broad framework that not only defines her philosophical interests as a composer, but also marks out critical moments in her creative and technical approaches; shifting from her roots in tape music to more digital approaches.
“Echos” is the first excerpt. Listen below.
