Eduardo Bértola was born in Coronel Moldes, Córdoba, Argentina, 14 July 1939, and died in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, on 20 February 1996. Bértola was part of a generation of Latin American musicians from the 1960s and 1970s that included Joaquín Orellana from Guatemala, Coriún Aharonián from Uruguay, as well as Graciela Paraskevaídis, Alcides Lanza, Gerardo Gandini, Mariano Etkin and Oscar Bazán from Argentina. Bértola is recognized in the field of electroacoustic composition and, as Aharonián and Paraskevaídis have pointed out, his work is characterized by timbral exploration, distinctive textures, use of silence and repetition, austerity of materials, and a structure based on repetitive units without development.
