Adrian Montufar

I am a composer and improviser in the Music Composition PhD program. My music often plays with the relationship between the musician and their instrument or, more recently, between the voice and the body. I try to use technology to extend and disrupt these relationships. In practice, this means I am learning to use sensor technology and controller design to build new musical instruments and sound installations.

I grew up in Quito, Ecuador, and obtained my BA from Columbia University. Between 2017 and 2019, I completed MMus programs in Composition and Sonic Arts at Goldsmiths, University of London, respectively under the supervision of Roger Redgate and Freida Abtan.
