Graciela Paraskevaídis is a composer, musicologist and educator who lies between referents of Latin American music production. Born and solidly formed in the city of Buenos Aires, Paraskevaídis has resided in the city of Montevideo, Uruguay, since 1975. Paraskevaídis’ musical and theoretical work has had an extensive reception and dissemination in Latin American and international spheres. A powerful and expressive concentrated load characterizes her musical production. Her works often have a restricted set of sound materials and expressive use of silence that are combined with non-mechanical reiteration processes. Paraskevaídis has developed an important role as musicologist alongside teaching and composition.
