Clara Brea is a London based electronic musician with a focus on field recordings of urban spaces, remote landscapes, combining the results with modular synth compositions and sound design.
Originally from Madrid, Clara’s background traverses different genres, from composing new works and sound environments for the theater company La Extraña Compañia Madrid to being Producer and DJ in residence with Heart Ibiza’s Acid Sundays and Heart Factory.
She has performed and DJ’d for GOA- Madrid, Art Basel- Miami, the Convergence Festival and for Dialogues of Space at Stour Artspace (London, UK). Her ambient production work was featured as part of Eduardo de la Calle’s Analog Solutions compilations (22 & 23) featuring their techno collaboration Formant Times.
Her first album, Dystopian OST, released in April of 2018 on the Madrid based label Solid Tapes, was reviewed by Electronica And Roll as, “A mature and ambitious work with ambient passages, dreamlike, industrial, abstract…that palpitates and breathes…” Her other releases and remixes can be heard via the labels Get Physical, LNDKHN, Idioteque Records and on her soundcloud page.
Currently, Clara’s focus on field recording has allowed her to spend time with Chris Watson, studying his practices in Environmental Sound along with participating in the Gutenberg Sound Art Academy in Germany. She will participate in the Catalon Eufonic Lo Pati 2019 residency in Catalonia, Spain, creating a new work that will debut at the Eufonic Festival later this year.
