fondation royaumont : voix nouvelles aca

MHN (c) Fondation Royaumont / Voix Nouvelles Academy 2020



Manuel Hidalgo Navas (Córdoba, 1998), studies composition in Musikene (Superior Music Centre of the Basque Country) with Gabriel Erkoreka and Ramon Lazkano; and later with Gérard Pesson at Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse of Paris, where he practices, by the same token, electroacoustic composition with Yan Maresz and Luis Naon.

Interested in the dialogue between arts, particularly in the nexus and the possible exchange between sound and image, sound and text, communication processes and/or external references, Manuel Hidalgo Navas works frequently basing his music on a reflection on intertextuality and relief of sound.

Manuel Hidalgo Navas' music has been played by musicians such as Neue Vocalsolisten Stuttgart, SWR Symphonieorchester, Ensemble Recherche, Christine Chapman (Ensemble Musikfabrik), BOS (Bilbao Orkestra Sinfonikoa) or Divertimento Ensemble, among others; in venues as La Biennale di Venezia or Festival de Royaumont. He has been advised by composers such as Peter Eötvös, Alberto Posadas, Philippe Manoury, Hèctor Parra, Francesco Filidei, Dmitri Kourliandski or Raphaël Cendo; and he has participated in academies such as the Biennale College Musica 2021, the 30th edition of the academy Voix Nouvelles / Fondation Royaumont, as well as in the Quatuor Diotima academy. 

Within his upcoming projects figure a collaboration with the Deutsche Radio Philharmonie Orchester; and new pieces for Ryoko Aoki, Ensemble Intercontemporain and Ensemble Cairn.
