Andres Solis is a composer and sound artist. His work has focused on exploring free musical forms that intend to dilute the rigid constraints imposed by traditional musical structures. He has sought to assimilate his environment to find his own language through computer assisted composition, improvisation and interdisciplinary artistic collaborations. A special attraction for the performing and cinematic arts has led him to collaborate on different projects of theater, dance, video art, sound design and film music. He has also worked with prepared turntables and modified acoustic instruments in combination with analog and digital processing tools. His academic training started in 1989 in Mexico City at the C.I.E.M. (Musical Studies and Research Center). Then he moved to Holland to continue at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague, where he studied with Clarence Barlow. Later, in Paris, with the support of a grant from the French Government, he concluded a postgraduate degree (DEA) under the supervision of Horacio Vaggione in the department of Sciences of Performing Arts in Paris 8 University, Saint-Denis. He was co-director of the experimental music festivals AURAL and RADAR in México City. In 2012 he entered the National System of Art Creators of FONCA.
