Carlos Sandoval is an internationally active composer, sound artist, graphic artist and bike traveler. This tendency to "polymathy" (interests in a substantial number of subjects and disciplines) is to be observed since his youth. He is best known for his creative work combining technology with a gestalt approach. Michael Zwenzner describes him as a "socio-critical magician of multimedia-enhanced instrumental theatre". Cognitive theories of language as an object and theories about our inability to differentiate the external world from our own psyche currently exert a great influence on his work, no matter the discipline.

 

 

He is in general self-taught and has remained outside the circles of academia throughout his life.

Sandoval was C. Nancarrow's assistant. He has lived in Berlin since 2003 and acquired his second nationality (German) in 2009. His work has been requested or programmed by festivals such as Donaueschinger Musiktage (1992, 2015), Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival (2007) or Klangspuren Schwaz (2016). Recent commissions: NDR Das Neue Werk, ensemble mosaik, American Society, Siemens Stifftung, Grazer Kunstverein, Fundacin Alumnos 47, INM-Berlin, LIMINAR ensemble, ensemble Contrechamps and Vertixe Sonora ensemble, among others.
