Bruno Faria is a versatile musician with a major interest in merging fields of action as a performer, a researcher, and an educator. Since very early in his career Faria has been involved with symphonic, chamber music, different forms of popular music repertoires—including especially Brazilian music, as well as with experimental and improvisational practices in his native Brazil, in The United States—where he earned his Master’s degree at The University of Iowa, and in Sweden—where he earned his Ph.D. at Lund University—Malmö Academy of Music. Faria’s PhD thesis, “Exercising musicianship anew through soundpainting: speaking music through sound gestures”, is a thorough artistic-academic study of experiences of the soundpainting practice from his perspective as classically trained flutist.Through the practice of soundpainting Faria has been expanding his expressive palette towards the creation of improvisational works with electronics as well as multidisciplinary live-compositions blending music, theatre, visual arts, and dance). Faria aims for investigating and combining these forms of expression together, seeking thoughtfulness as an artist–researcher avid for integration and innovation. A predominant focus in his artistic, pedagogical and research activities relates to the interplay between moments of preparation and performance and the development of methodic processes for raising awareness towards expressive subtleties.
