A major interest of the Spanish composer Alberto Posada is exploring the relationship between music, nature and mathematics. He also focuses on the connection between music and other forms of art. This portrait CD, Poetics of the Gaze, comprehensively documents the influence of fine art on his compositions. Alberto Posadas was born in Valladolid, Spain in 1967. He is regularly a composer-in-residence at IRCAM, has held scholarships from the Free State of Bavaria (Villa Concordia, Bamberg) and the Wissenschaftskolleg Berlin, and was awarded the National Music Prize by the Spanish Ministry of Culture. His music is played at many festivals, including the Donaueschinger Musiktage, Eclat (Stuttgart), Ars Musica (Brussels), Ultima (Oslo), Klang-spuren Schwaz (Tyrol), Ultraschall (Berlin), Musica Strasbourg, and the Wittener Tage für Neue Kammermusik. Klangforum Wien featuring Nacho de Paz as conductor.
