Irene Galindo Quero is a Spanish composer, born in Granada in 1985.
Linguistics, literature and theories of perception have, from the beginning, played an
important role in her work. She enjoys working along the threshold of music and
language. Close observation of their common spaces often reveal the actual distances
between these worlds.
She studied in Granada with Pedro Guajardo, at the Musikhochschule Freiburg with
Cornelius Schwehr and Mathias Spahlinger, and at the Musikhochschule Köln with
Johannes Schöllhorn.
Her works have been performed by, among others: Ensemble Surplus, Aleph
Gitarrenquartett, Linea Ensemble Strasbourg, ensemble aisthesis, ensemble cross.art,
ensemble alarm, and hand werk ensemble at Klangspuren Schwaz, Baden-
Württemberg Literatur Sommer, Akademie der Künste Berlin, Mehrklang Festival
Freiburg, Newcomer-Konzerten der Wittener Tagen für neue Kammermusik, new
talents Köln, e-Werk Freiburg, Concertgebouw Brugge, Kulturbrauerei Berlin, and the
Acht Brücken Festival Köln.
She is also active in the fields of film and installation, with performances at the
Kommunalen Kino Freiburg and participation at the exhibition Regionale 11
Kunstverein Freiburg.

Alexander von Humboldt Scholarship, La Caixa-DAAD, Association des Amis de
Royaumont, Composer- in residence at Brahmshaus Baden-Baden, Artist-in-Residence
