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.
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
