Josué Moreno (1980 Jaén, Spain)

composer, sound artist, researcher

ABOUT

Behind his artistic practice there are two main ideas: the metaphor of “sound as space to articulate” and, collaboration as artistic means, hence the very interdisciplinary nature of his projects.
    Moreno researches the concepts of “urban sonic acupuncture” and “sonic weather” in his work, which varies from purely instrumental music to sound installations and interactive software. His work has been presented in important festivals and forums such as Jiem (Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía Madrid), Synthèse (Bourges), Festival de Música Contemporánea de Alicante and Seoul International Computer Music Festival. His work has been supported and commissioned by institutions such as Fundación Phonos (Barcelona), CDMC (Centro para la Difusión de la Música Contemporánea, Spain), Musicadhoy/Operadhoy (Madrid), ENPARTS (European Network of Performing Arts) and Kone Foundation (Finland). His music has been published in several CDs under the labels Marmita-Música Viva and AMEE.
    He worked in the generative design, interactivity and implementation of the sound environment for the Finnish Pavilion of the Shanghai Expo 2010.He is currently living in Helsinki (Finland) developing an artistic research project on Urban Sonic Acupuncture supported by Niilo Helander Foundation, Kone Foundation and Sibelius Academy where he also teaches. In August 2017 he presented a permanent audio-architectural sonic acupuncture installation at The Great Amber, Liepāja, Latvia for the Liepāja Art Forum.
