Luís Tabuenca IN RESiDENCE at the School Antaviana

Luis Tabuenca (Saragossa 1980)

Born in Zaragoza, Luis studied percussion and composition in his home city as well as in Barcelona, Amsterdam and at the University of California, in San Diego. He is currently studying for a Doctorate in Sound Art at the University of Barcelona. He has received grants from the Fulbright Commission, the Government of Aragon, the Barcelona Culture Institute (ICUB in its Catalan acronym), the Ramon Llull Institute and the Spanish Authors’ Foundation. He has received numerous awards and has given workshops and lectures at institutions around the world (Bern, London, Cairo, New York, etc.). He has been the founder and artistic co-director of the International Experimental Music Festival (FAT) and resident artist at the New York University, the Electroacoustic Music Days in Portugal and the Phonos Foundation of the Pompeu Fabra University.

He has composed works for various formations, which have been performed both in Spain and abroad. In 2014 he founded an ensemble of his own, dedicated to promoting an interdisciplinary dialogue between music, art, science and nature, focused on redefining the concept of opera, in order to reorient its practices toward a more dynamic form of art of the 21st century, one which allows representation beyond specialist theatres and reaching new audiences. He has recorded seven records for the labels: Mode Records, Aural Embanins, Diatribe, Verso, Sinkro, Naucleshg and Acheulian Handaxe Records.

Institut Escola Antaviana is known for an educational approach that considers inclusion and attention to diversity as one of its main objectives. Its pupils are a very broad cross-section of the social spectrum of the neighbourhood and show a very high degree of diversity in terms of individual educational needs and socio-economic background. Antaviana also has strong links with families, the neighbourhood and its facilities, such as the Ateneu de Nou Barris, which is a reference point for the entire educational community.
