Garcia, Orlando Jacinto 




Through more than one hundred and forty works composed for a wide range of performance genres, Orlando Jacinto Garcia has established himself as an important figure in the new music world. The distinctive character of his music has been described as "time suspended- haunting sonic explorations" qualities he developed from his studies with Morton Feldman among others. 

Born in Havana, Cuba in 1954, Garcia migrated to the United States in 1961. In demand as a guest composer and lecturer, he is the recipient of numerous honors and awards from a variety of organizations and cultural institutions including the Rockefeller, Fulbright, Dutka, Civitella Ranieri, and Cintas Foundations, the State of Florida Council for the Arts and the Ariel, Noise International, Matiz Rangel, Nuevas Resonancias, Sonic Circuits, Salvatore Martirano, and Bloch International Competitions. Most recently he has been the recipient of 3 Latin Grammy nominations in the best Contemporary Classical Composition Category (2009-11). With performances in most of the major capitols of the world, his works are recorded on New Albion, O.O. Discs, CRI /New World, Albany, North/South, CRS, Rugginenti, VDM, Capstone, Innova, CNMAS, and Opus One Records and are available from Kallisti Music Press and the American Composers Alliance.

He is the founder and director of Miami Chapter of the International Society for Contemporary Music (ISCM) and several international festivals including the New Music Miami ISCM Festival and is the founder and artistic director of the NODUS Ensemble and the Florida International University New Music Ensemble. Garcia is Professor of Music and director of the School of Music at Florida International University in Miami (USA).
