Inti Figgis-Vizueta is a non-binary Quechua/Latinx experimental composer from Washington, D.C. They strive to create works that emphasize the performer’s perceptions and physical self, focusing on process-based music. Through the integration of intersectional and liberation principles into the compositional process, Inti believes the subversive barriers between composer, player, and audience can be broken down, promoting a growth in performance practice and community.
They recently completed their last year of a Bachelor of Arts in Music, focusing on music composition, at American University. Inti was a recipient of the 2016 Koster Grant for Summer Study, and attended the Wintergreen Composer's Retreat & the Atlantic Music Festival. They are attending highSCORE music festival in Pavia, Italy in August of 2017. Inti recently won the 2017 JMU New Music for Young Musicians award and was invited to participate in the Baltimore Choral Arts Society Composer Project. Inti is currently pursuing a Masters of Music in Composition at Boston Conservatory at Berklee, studying with Felipe Lara.
