ABOUT

Born in Madrid (1995), A. Crespo Barba is a Spanish artist and composer. He graduated with honors in Contemporary Music Composition at Escuela TAI (Madrid), where he was awarded with the Beca al talento scholarship. He also studied his Master of Composition at Codarts (Rotterdam), having graduated Cum Laude. 

His music is a mix of many influences that goes from Radiohead to classical music or the oldest flamenco forms, the latter being the main topic of his most recent works. In addition, his way of thinking about art establishes ideas in common with artists from other disciplines, as he had worked with experimental choreographers, visual artists or fashion designers such as MAISON the FAUX, Stef van Looveren, Boris Edrosa or Lukas Karvelis. He has participated in different festivals in The Netherlands, like Red Sofa!, Grachtenfestival, Gaudeamus Muziekweek, November Music or New Music Conference (where he was awarded with the Best New Composer Pitch Prize); and abroad, having premiered pieces in other European festivals and events such as Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival in England, New Baltic Festival in Lithuania, or Crossing Borders in Italy. Since 2019, he is also member of the AMEE (Asociación de Música Electroacústica de España). He is currently working on a new production issued by the festivals November Music and Flamenco Biënnale Nederland.
