Angélica Castelló (Mexico City 1972) is a recorder player, composer, improviser, sound artist, curator, teacher living in Vienna.
She plays mainly the “Paetzold” which is a sub great bass recorder, along tapes and electronics. As a composer, she writes music for her own instruments and for ensembles as well. The last few years she has done various installations which combines music, performance & visual arts. Even though her source of inspiration, such as literature or visual arts, often have specific roots, they lead Castelló to an abstract engagement with such topics as death, and dealing with traumatic encounters.
Recorded in Vienna & Berlin (September 2016 – January 2017 respectively) her work for Thalamos, “Lepidópteros”, consists of 2 pieces about butterflies, moths, caterpillars and also about the love and fobia towards them.
