Bruno C. Faria is a Portuguese composer residing in Boston, MA. His works combine traditional musical language and structures with electronic creations and techniques, forming a hybrid between these two different sound worlds. The concept of time and spatial boundaries are challenged by incorporating ideas such as reversal methods and the manipulation of sound textures by way of electronic means. The end goal being a balance between the various schools of musical thought from its historical past up until the present day.
He has composed music for solo instruments, chamber as well as large ensembles, electronica mediums, and has been, as of late, focused primarily on operatic and vocal works, having recently written a chamber opera (finalist for the 2021 American Prize in Opera Composition award) on the trial and last days of Joan of Arc, and is now in the beginning stages of writing a three act opera buffa with librettist Erick Blore, based on "The Importance of Being Earnest" by Oscar Wilde.
He is an active member of the duos The Delicate Rising and Beleza Flux. Bruno holds degrees from Berklee College of Music and Longy School of Music of Bard College. One day he hopes to pull a Thoreau, raise gardens during the day and build music boxes by night.
