Born in Sao Paulo, composer and improviser Alex Buck (1980) is graduated in composition with emphasis in Electroacoustic modality at São Paulo’s State University (UNESP).

His production as a composer focuses on acousmatic music – with particular interest in dialogues between referential-concrete sounds and abstract ones. Some of his pieces have been projected in concert rooms from countries abroad including Germany, Mexico and France. His piece “A Dialética das Durações” (sólo percussion – 2009) was awarded at the XIX Biennial of Contemporary Music promoted by FUNARTE (2010). Alex is now developing his master’s research in Electroacoustic Composition (UNESP) under the guidance of composer Flo Menezes.

He is currently a professor of Composition, Ècriture, Musical Analysis and Improvisation at EMESP Tom Jobim (São Paulo’s State Music School).
