|Mario Verandi is an Argentinean, Berlin-based composer, musician and producer with a long term fascination with exploring the blurring of musical genres. This has led him to develop a personal sound universe difficult to classify. His music draws from a distinctive combination of modern classical, ambient and electronic music. The classical music influences spreads an aura of mystery and fragile melancholy in Mario´s music and the experimental electronics introduce unpredictability and exploration, allowing unconventional textures and sounds to emerge. With an education in classical music, he also played in bands of different styles such as rock, jazz, tango and experimental. During his decade-long stay in London he spent an extended period studying and exploring electroacoustic music techniques.
Mario´s works have received prizes and awards in the Prix Ars Electronica Awards (Linz), European Bell Days Composition Prize (ZKM, Karlsruhe), Bourges International Electroacoustic Music Competition (France), Musica Nova Competition (Prague), CIEJ Electronic Music Awards (Barcelona) and SGAE Electroacoustic Music Competition (Spain). It has also been included in the Essex Collection of Latin American Art.
