Iván Ferrer-Orozco (Mexico City, 1976) is a composer, electronic media performer and sideman. His music is a mix between unbridled energy and meticulous crafted structures to hammer mind and body. Music is vigorous energy, present pure; within it elements as sound, territory, new media and space are shaped to unveil experiences related with memory, sensual reaction and intuition. Sound and space are carefully shaped within thoroughly planned structures to stir public’s intuition, so that music becomes a path in which the world can be consciously and profoundly experienced beyond language.
Ivan's music has been performed in festivals and concert series of Mexico, Spain, Canada, Argentina, Chile, South Korea, Japan, Vietnam, Germany, Italy, Cyprus and USA. He has been artist in residence at La Residencia de Estudiantes (Spain), Camargo Foundation (France), I-Park Foundation, MacDowell Colony, VCCA and Djerassi (USA); Arts Centre of San Luis Potosi and CMMAS (Mexico), Hooyong Performing Arts Centre (South Korea), Park in Progress-ARTos Foundation (Cyprus), Schleswig-Holsteinisches Künstlerhaus and Oberpfälzer Künstlerhaus (Germany); and Ibermusicas-Tropi Ensemble (Argentina).
