Hara Alonso
Hara Alonso (SE/ES) is a pianist and composer based in Stockholm. Her music blends electronic and instrumental elements generating complex and imaginative sonic universes.
Her creative practice questions the hegemonic narratives around music and technologies by resignifing its tools and knowledge. By means of improvisation, somatics, physicality, DIY interfaces and coding, Hara composes new sonic systems and languages.

Hara works as sound designer in various artistic research projects at the Stockholm University of the Arts and is an artist in residency at Elektronmusikstudion in Stockholm. In 2014 she initiated the participatory composition project The City Composing. Besides her artistic practice Hara teaches music programming at The Royal College of Music in Stockholm.
