Clara Olivares

Clara Olivares (France, b. 1993) is a French-Spanish composer. The use of electronics in her compositions is characterized both by a desire to serve a dramaturgical purpose—as seen in her chamber opera Mary (2017) where a soprano interprets several characters with multiple live treatments embodying each identity—and by a work on combinations of sounds from different sources, thus extending the work of hybridization of timbres that she explores in the instrumental world, in search of a plasticity of her musical language. She holds a degree in musicology (Université Paris-Sorbonne), a Bachelor's degree in composition and a Master's degree in composition (HEAR/University of Strasbourg). Since 2017 she has been pursuing a doctorate in composition at the University of Berkeley (USA).
