Andrea Guterres

Composer & Classical Guitarist


Hi there!

I’m Andrea, an Australian-born composer and classical guitarist with a specialisation in electroacoustic music and spatialised sound. Over the years, collaborating with numerous ensembles, visual artists, theatre-makers, and dancers, has helped develop my current style of interdisciplinary experimentation. I believe that music is a unique platform for storytelling and a potent enabler of human connection. With this in mind, I use sound to unpack social constructs and explore the philosophical complexities of our human condition.
