Lebenslauf:
SANTA BUŠS is Latvian composer especially interested in detailed pre-compositional process and peculiarly in working with extra-musical ideas (found in other disciplines of art, physiology, history, mythology, nature, architecture, medicine, sports, philosophy, etc.). Although her main focus and also form of expression has been linked with instrumental music, lately she has discovered a deep interest in voice and its possibilities, as well as is very keen to expand her approach towards sound and composition exploring different forms of collaboration. This includes also exploring territories between conventional and unconventional notation and performance techniques, as well as experimenting between the boundaries of music, theatre and opera, and focusing on the physical manipulation of instruments and the presence of musicians as a source of drama. She has studied both composition and musicology at the Latvian Academy of Music and Hamburg University of Music and Theatre. Her works has been performed throughout Europe, in North America, Asia and Australia.
