Isaac Barzso, is a composer, improviser, and sound artist who creates acoustic and electronic music and multimedia art. Isaac’s work is grounded in complex, detailed sound, driven by the search for interaction between materiality and intangibility of sonic material, with his practice focused on continual exploration of the relationship between acoustic and electronic sound sources and alternate methods of auditory transduction.
Isaac’s work has been performed across North America and Europe in collaboration with artists such as JACK Quartet, Longleash, Ensemble Dal Niente, Mivos Quartet, Sandbox Percussion, and line upon line, and has been featured at events such as the Darmstädter Ferienkurse, Opera Forward Festival (Dutch National Opera), SEAMUS, Yarn/Wire Festival, NYCEMF, ICMC, SICPP, and the Loretto Project.
Isaac is a Ph.D. fellow in Music and Multimedia Composition at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island. In 2023 he graduated with distinction from the Royal Conservatory of The Hague, studying composition with Yannis Kyriakides, Mayke Nas, Richard Barrett, and Peter Adriaansz.
