Esmeralda Conde Ruiz is a London based composer for sound art, interdisciplinary choral and contemporary classical music. Her practice revolves around human voices with themes of memory, time and velocity. Her compositions evolve from a visual starting point of a collage to sound landscapes and rhythmical patterns.

Through her interest in the relationship between music and art she has collaborated with many contemporary artist such as Yoko Ono, Olafur Eliasson, Susan Philipsz and Peter Liversidge.

Her current pieces are Cabin Fever, a piece for choir, visuals and video conference software with latency and A Good Place, a piece for 300 children with hand held lights and organ to be performed at Dresden Philharmonie next year.
