Isabel Soveral IN FOCUS ON THE MIC.PT IN September
In September we dedicate the MIC.PT In Focus section to Isabel Soveral, thus marking the release of the Dossier no. 15 devoted to this composer published by the MIC.PT. This new Dossier belongs to the MIC.PT digital editions series: Dossiers . Portuguese Composers of the 20th and 21st Centuries.
Isabel Soveral was born in 1961 in Porto. At the age of 18 she attended the Composition course led by Jorge Peixinho, with whom she worked until 1988. Together with Joly Braga Santos, he became one of the main figures in the process of her music education. In that same year she became student at the Stony Brook University in New York, where she studied with Daria Semegen and Bulent Arel.
Since 1995 Isabel Soveral has been Composition, Theory and Music Analysis professor at the Aveiro University, where presently she's also director of the Electroacoustic Music Research Centre (CIME), as well as creator of the EAW - Electroacoustic Winds platform. She’s also coordinator of the EAW 2017 International Congress, taking place between November 13 and 17 2017. The composer also coordinates the INET-MD Composition, Theory and Music Technology group, and since 2008 she has been member of the Portuguese Music Research & Information Centre Scientific Council.
The distinctive factor in Isabel Soveral’s music, both at macro and micro levels, is the sense of morphosis, constant transformation from one piece to another - the composer has a particular taste for joining her works in cycles. Her music creation, where one can find strong modernist influences, also possesses a “visual” component, being reflected in Isabel Soveral’s way of working with sound “masses” and “fabrics”, analogically to creating visual arts pieces.
In September visit our In Focus section dedicated to Isabel Soveral.
