Manuel Rodríguez Valenzuela
Manuel Rodríguez Valenzuela, born in 1980, Valencia (Spain), studied composition in Barcelona, Helsinki and Aarhus and attended several seminars and master classes in different countries. He lives in Potsdam.
Manuel feels comfortable in the diversity, alternating between sometimes extremely different compositional techniques, instrumental resources, objects and different media. He also enjoys organizing chaos into unexpected combinations. Lately he focuses on intertextuality, reinterpreting pieces from the past, and also on a personal idea of honesty in the process of composing.
