inti figgis-fizueta virtual residency
Composition Seminar April 29, 2-3:15 p.m.
"inti's music feels sprouted between structures, liberated from certainty and wrought from a language we'd do well to learn" - The Washington Post
Originally from Washington D.C. and now residing in New York City, inti figgis-vizueta (b. 1993) focuses on close collaborative relationships with a wide range of ensembles and soloists. Her musical practice is physical and visceral, attempting to reconcile historical aesthetics and experimental practices with trans and indigenous futures.
The New York Times speaks of her music as "alternatively smooth & serrated," The Washington Post as "raw, scraping yet soaring," and the National Sawdust Log as "all turbulence" and "quietly focused." inti is the 2020 recipient of the ASCAP Foundation Fred Ho Award for "work that defies boundary and genre."
