Work in progress
In the course of these two decades Arturo Fuentes (Austrian citizen, born in México in 1975) has created a very diverse catalogue of over a hundred works. In the last years he started to create the scenography and to direct his own music theatre projects, like the opera-monodrama Carlota (2018) dedicated to Sarah Maria Sun and the Klangforum Wien. His catalogue consists of chamber, vocal and orchestral music and mixed works with electronics, as well as electroacoustic works, staged concerts, dance performances and short films that he has directed and produced.
