Yaiza Varona is an award winning composer and sound designer based between London, UK and Madrid, Spain.
She divides her time between writing music and curating sound design for the media (Theatre, TV, film, 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.
On her background: Born in Barcelone, she is currently based between London and Madrid. She has a Degree in Musicology by Granada University in 2003, studying Early Music and Music Critics specialization subjects, and a Certificate in Composition for the Media. Her interests also include Music Technology and world music research. She is a Logic X and 9 Master Pro certified by Apple, working also as a instructor and consultant in person and online.
