(Rio de Janeiro, 1950)
Rodolfo Caesar is a professor at UFRJ School of Music in Rio de Janeiro. He studied in the early days of the Instituto Villa-Lobos, as it was conceived and coordinated by Reginaldo Carvalho. There began Rodolfo’s interest in the relationship between new technologies and music. Having been a Pierre Schaeffer’s ‘stagiaire’, he graduated in electroacoustic music at the CNSM de Paris. Since then, Rodolfo composes autonomous pieces, or works related to other arts, such as dance, theater, cinema, poetry and the visual arts. His pieces are displayed in galleries
or museums, or played in concerts and radio broadcasts. His current research project, funded by CNPq (National Counsel of Technological
and Scientific Development), addresses music’s different materialities, as it questions bio-acoustics and contemporary musical aesthetics.
