Manuel Hidalgo Navas (Córdoba Spain, 1998), entered the conservatory of his hometown as violist. He began studying composition guided by Oscar Prados Sillero, and then with Gabriel Erkoreka and Ramon Lazkano in Musikene (Superior Music Centre of the Basque Country). Currently, he is completing his studies with Gérard Pesson at Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Paris (CNSMDP), 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, painting and sculpture, Manuel Hidalgo works frequently basing his music on visual references, carrying out a reflection on intertextuality and relief of sound.
Sponsored by the SGAE Foundation, Manuel Hidalgo has participated in academies such as the Biennale College Musica 2021, the XXX edition of the academy Voix Nouvelles – Royaumont Foundation, as well as in the Quatuor Diotima academy. He has received advices from composers such as Peter Eötvös, Alberto Posadas, Philippe Manoury, Hèctor Parra, Francesco Filidei, Dmitri Kourliandski or Raphaël Cendo; and he has collaborated with musicians such as Ensemble Recherche, Musikfabrik or Ensemble Divertimento, among others.
Within his upcoming projects figure a collaboration with the SWR Symphonieorchester and the Deutsche Radio Philharmonie Orchester; and new pieces for the ensembles Neue Vocalsolisten Stuttgart, Intercontemporain and Cairn.
