Nicolas Chuaqui's recent works have been heard at many prominent festivals, including June in Buffalo, The Diffrazioni Multimedia Festival (Florence, Italy), The Florida Electroacoustic Student Festival, The NYC Electroacoustic Music Festival, and The Deer Valley Festival. He has also recently had his first opera, The Forest of Dreams, premiered in a fully-staged production by New Voices Opera (Indiana; 2016).
His music draws on both his childhood training as a chorister and pianist, and his interest in musical memory, time, and the soundworld existing around us. Recent compositions have taken on a decidedly postmodern flavor by striving to build a context for the listener that addresses its own existence in our world. He has received degrees from Dartmouth College and Indiana University, and will begin at Eastman in the Fall of 2017.Curriculum Vitae/Works List
