Sergio Castrillón

I’m an artist interested in sound and any creative manifestation.

Currently I’m pursuing the last year of a PhD research called New Directions in the Cello Timbre at the University of Helsinki. I’m teaching and assisting diverse practical and theoretical courses as visiting lecturer within different scopes and institutions in Europe and South America, such as Laponia Improvisations, Sibelius Academy, Helsinki Theatre Academy, University of Helsinki, Helsinki Conservatory, Music Academy of Oslo, Estonian Academy, Basel University, University of Caldas, Javeriana University, Conservatory del Liceu Barcelona, and Latvian Conservatory, among others.

As performer I’m involved in several musical and multidisciplinary projects, which involved mainly improvisation. Among them are Kaiku Duo, Los Duo, Korvat Auki Ensamble, Laponia Improvisations Experiment, Mimo Art Company. Over the last years my work has been focused in collaborations within Sound Art, Performance, Contemporary Dance, Theater, Poetry and Visual Arts. As composer, my work incorporates several formats including instrumental acoustic, electroacoustic, acousmatic and multimedia.

My music and performances have traveled around Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Denmark, England, Estonia, Finland, France, Greece, Italy, Norway, Poland, Peru, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and Uruguay.
