José Luis Perdigón is a Canarian (Spain) composer based in Berlin. In his works he explores the possibilities of time and ’mind space’ organization with different sound layers, extreme contrasts, repetition and independence of silence; as well as new relationships with body language, techno, electronic music and trash culture.
He has received commissions from Vertixe Sonora Ensemble, Brandenburgisches Staatsorchester, Orquesta de Valencia, Sonido Extremo Ensemble & Kollektiv Unruhe and his works have been premiered by Trio Accanto, Percussions de Strasbourg, Schallfeld Ensemble, Trio Abstrakt, Sonar Quartett, BCN216, Vertixe Sonora Ensemble, Ensemble Sonido Extremo, Orquesta de Valencia, Kebyart Quartet, Brandenburgisches Staatsorchester Frankfurt and Ilinx Ensemble. He has participated in festivals such as Impuls (Graz), Mixtur Festival, Ensems Festival, Crescendo, MehrlichtMusik!, Monat der zeitgenössischen Musik, II Ciclo Ibercaja de Música, 'Jornadas de Música Contemporánea de Segovia' and the International Music Festival of the Canary Islands.
He was recently awarded the first prize of the XIX International Joan Guinjoan Prize for Young Composers (2021).
