THE POWER OF WORDS
Y aiza Varona is an award winning international composer and sound designer currently based in Madrid, Spain.
She divides her time between writing music and curating sound design for the media (Theatre, TV, film, VR, installations, libraries, etc) and some personal projects, among them immersive sound works.
Built around experimental music and bold sound design, both are weaved in complex sonic languages. Her unique sound is deeply rooted in History, non traditional instrumentation, and a strong use of sound design and the spoken word as musical elements.
In the past, she has been published by West One, MIBE, CouldB, Synctracks, Felt Music, Nova Nota or Bedtracks among others. She has also written for New Diorama Theatre, The Spanish Theatre Company at Cervantes Theatre, Pinecone Performance Lab, Dotted Line Theatre or The Faction for live shows as well as for radio, film and advertising. Additionally, she is a featured editor in SCOREcast Online among other audio professional platforms writing specialised articles on Musicology and Logic X.
