Andrea Guterres completed studies in classical guitar at the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music (Australia) with Tonie Field before switching continents and disciplines. During a subsequent 2- year expedition in Berlin, in which electroacoustic music used in conjunction with multidisciplinary performance was her main focus, Andrea collaborated with many musicians, beat makers, visual artists, dancers, and generally creative people. Her work and collaborations have consequently appeared in many festivals and iconic venues throughout Australia, Europe, Asia, and the U.S.
With the support of accommodation stipends from several artistic residencies within Europe, Andrea has had the privilege of examining her role as a composer in the wider, more holistic experience of contemporary music; something she attempts to consider in each of her works. Frequently drawing inspiration from literature, philosophy, and the general experience of life, Andrea aims to use music as a means to bridge the gaps between music, other artistic disciplines, and the collective human experience. At the Conservatorium van Amsterdam she studies with Richard Ayres and Jorrit Tamminga, hoping to sharpen her chamber music skills while simultaneously discovering new and exciting ways to combine classical and electronic music.
