Henry Vega
Henry Vega, born in New York City (1973), is an active composer and performer of new music whose works appear in productions of theatre, dance and concert music that focus solely on modern artistic trends. His music ranges from virtuosic instrumental writings to subtle colourful compositions orchestrating traditional instrumentations with the world of electronic sound.
His current interests lie within theatrical settings of his music in combination with video in the space of minimal aesthetics that cross simple harmonies over noisy counterpoints.
Many of his works have been composed for instruments in combination with the computer as a live instrument aiming to create new sounds for his compositions that fuse the virtuosity of the instrumentalists with digital variations of themselves. This combination has been an influence on the way the music sounds as well as an an inspiration for how to approach acoustic instruments and scores, something which is evident from his more recent compositions.
While based in The Netherlands, Vega’s works have been performed at festivals and venues in Europe and the Americas often performing with his trio The Electronic Hammer. He has had the pleasure to write music for ensembles such as the MAE, VocaalLab, Ensemble Integrales, the Ragazze String Quartet as well as the Roentgen Connection.
