Rodrigo Martinez Torres '24
Rodrigo Martínez is a composer and producer interested in the abstraction of Latin American music as a tool for new creations. With a strong interest in popular dance music, electronic music production and experimental music, Rodrigo's work explores both traditional ways of approaching music making, as well as exploring unknown aesthetic scenarios for Latinamerican music. His current explorations revolve around social music –that is, music which promotes collaboration, deep listening, and horizontality. Rodrigo has won the Arturo Marquez prize, and was recipient of the Jóvenes Creadores grant in Mexico City. He was awarded a MacDowell fellowship in 2019, and was also the winner of the Dartmouth College Wind Ensemble Composition Competition in 2020.
