Jorge Antunes, one of the most important Latin American composers of electroacoustic music, was born in Rio de Janeiro on April 23, 1942. He studied Violin, Composition and Conducting at the University of Rio de Janeiro. He also majored in Physics at the National Faculty of Philosophy. In 1961, after constructing himself some generators, filters, modulators and other equipments, Antunes founded the Chromo-Music Research Studio, and has since been recognized as the originator of electronic music in Brazil. In 1965 he began to research the correspondences between sound and color, and wrote works that he called “Cromoplastofonias”, for orchestras, magnetic tapes, lights, using also the senses of smell, taste and touch. Between 1969 and 1972 he attended post-graduate courses in Buenos Aires, Utrecht and Paris. In 1973 Antunes was invited by the University of Brasilia to direct the Music Composition Course in the Music Department, where he is now Professor. In 1977 he had a long stay in Paris in order to finish his doctoral thesis at Paris University Sorbonne. Antunes was a winner of the most important composition competitions (Trieste, Angelicum, Gaudeamus, ISCM, Vitae, etc), and his scores are published by Salabert, Breitkopf & Hartell, Suvini Zerboni, Zimmermann, Ricordi, Sistrum and Billaudot.
