Ileana Perez Velazquez

“Ileana Perez Velázquez has written numerous acoustic and electroacoustic works that reveal the depth and scope of her artistic imagination. Often inspired by extra-musical stimuli—ranging from the poetic to the psychological, the natural to the supernatural—Velázquez writes music that, while challenging for both performer and listener alike, is deeply expressive; her music may be uncompromising in its demands, but it also remains intensely dramatic and poignantly evocative. Whether she is writing for acoustic instruments, for electronics only, or a combination of the two, her music is always powerfully communicative. Her rich harmonic language and rhythmically intricate, multi-layered textures reveal her debt to her Cuban heritage.”
