Clara de Asís
Clara de Asís is a Spanish composer and guitarist based in France. She studied cinema at college, and has developed her fascination with the sound in films into her own sound recording and editing. After moving to France to study electroacoustic composition, she started collaborating with other musicians. De Asís's intuitive, unconventional style of compositions utilizes a minimal, spatial framework in which performers can create individual sounds with personal instrumentation incorporating active listening, to attain a paradoxical but coherent result that "setting a frame could bring out a lot of unexpected possibilities and revelations that come from the sound itself." Her music has been showcased in many international scenes including Berlin, Paris, Prague and New York. Besides actively releasing collaboration albums in recent years, her 2018 solo album 'Do Nothing" (Another Timbre), on which she played guitar and percussion on a set of her five compositions, was extremely well received.
