Andrea Guterres is an Australian composer, sound artist, and freelance musician (classical guitar). With a specialisation in electroacoustic music and ambisonic soundscapes, her pieces have been showcased at a number of international festivals and concert halls throughout Europe, Australia, Asia, and the U.S. Highlights include MUSLAB (Mexico City), Ars Electronica Forum Wallis (Switzerland), Bushwick Open Studio (NYC), Tilde New Music Festival (Melbourne), and Gaudeamus Muziekweek (Utrecht).

In addition, her work has been premiered at several revered venues in the Netherlands, such as Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ (Amsterdam), Korzo Theater (The Hague), the Oude Kerk (Amsterdam), and Het Orgelpark (Amsterdam). I’ve also worked with Nieuw Ensemble (NL), Ensemble Black Pencil (NL), Ensemble Mise-En (US), Ensemble Ospring (AUS), the Blink Quartet (NL), and Block4 (UK), amongst others.

Residency project:

“How can you turn the act of listening to electroacoustic music through loudspeakers into a ‘live’, physical experience? This is the primary question that I would like to explore in my proposed project, ‘Sound in Space’, an interdisciplinary piece with a focus on the physicality of sound and the potential of spatialised sound to create theatre and dramaturgy in its own right.

The product of ‘Sound in Space’ would be an ambisonic, multichannel sound installation, which could be presented either on multiple speakers and/or headphones as part of a soundwalk. The aim would be to bring sound into the physical realm by using a range of spatial audio rendering techniques, for example Wave Field Synthesis, Vector Base Amplitude Planning, Ambisonics Amplitude Planning, and Distance-Coded Ambisonics.”
