Ángel ARRANZ is a composer, sonologist and musicologist.
As a composer, his work centers on the development of modular structures, the exploration of intermediate domains between traditional instruments and electronics and sound spatialization. His music utilizes time as a constructional matter through applied mathematics, unifying the domains physical, structural, notational and DSP by means of organicism, morphology of natural forms, correlated spatiality and fractal geometry.
As a sonologist, he performs pieces by numerous composers through technical/artistic production at important venues, among others: Alberto Posadas, Kees Tazelaar, Richard Barrett, Jan Boerman, Dick Raaijmakers, Gottfried Michael Koenig, Babis Giannakopoulos, Johan Van Kreij, Juan José Eslava, Carlos Satué, Josué Moreno, Germán Alonso, Raquel García Tomás, Nuria Giménez Comas, Teresa Carrasco, Abel Paul, Siamak Anvari…
As a musicologist, he specializes on history of electronic music, working on a field research that examines space as a musical transversal concept, especially through the perspective of analog-acousmatic historical electronic music to date and algorithmic/ computer-assisted composition.
