Carmen-Helena Téllez practices composition as part of her work as a conductor and producer of inter-artistic events, and as a corollary of her research on music within interdisciplinary arts. Her music is influenced by her life experience as a Latin American artist and scholar and by Latin America’s multicultural heritage. She also addresses the fluctuation of memory and perception, the role of music in the generation of sacred and communal spaces, and the co-creative action of performers and audiences.
For a full view of Carmen’s activities as a conductor, producer and interdisciplinary artist, please visit the pages of her production group Aquavá New Music Studio and her artistic collective Kosmologia.
