Jorge Martínez Valderrama (México, 1981)
As a composer and sound artist, his work reflects on various aesthetic phenomena and concepts within contemporary, electro-acoustic and acousmatic music. Some of his works have been presented in forums, festivals and digital programs inside and outside of Mexico.
He has developed his recent work through artistic residency programs. He was part of the “Tejido Vivo” program in Cusco, Peru (2018), composer in residence at “Buinho Creative Hub” in Messejana, Portugal (2019), Santo Domingo Center for Latin American Studies at the British Museum (2021) and Medienfrische in Tirol, Austria (2023).
His work is based on field recording and is developed under the concepts of perception, alteration, poetics and pareidolia. His artistic interest focuses on listening and reflecting on the implications of sound in different contexts and ecosystems, collective creation and sound-environmental activism.
He has also worked as a composer, music supervisor and sound designer for dance, film, theater, multimedia, transmedia arts and installation projects. He works as director and music producer at Idyllium, a specialized creative services agency for artists.
