Profile of JIMÉNEZ, Marisol
Marisol Jiménez is a composer and multidisciplinary artist from Guadalajara, Mexico, currently residing in Berlin. Described as “fashioning a deep, primeval musical discourse”. Her work expresses an intense fascination with the tactile process of creating sound, an interplay of the entropic within the structured musical machinery, colliding the primeval with the technological to seek forceful sensuous and visceral energies. Her output includes numerous chamber and electronic works, as well as sound and intermedia installations. Most of her acoustic, electronic and mixed media works involve self made sound sculptures, found objects, and collected sound materials from her own field recordings, improvisations and performances. She completed a Doctorate degree in composition at Stanford University in 2011, and a Master of Arts degree from Mills College, Oakland, CA (2005). Jimenéz is a member of the National System of Art Creators in Mexico from the national Found for the Arts and Culture (FONCA). Her work has been performed and commission by leading ensembles and interpreters of new music throughout Europe, The United Stated and Mexico.
