Carlos Chinchillas Terrazas : Luthier
The maker Carlos Chinchillas Terrazas
I am luthier, I have been building musical instruments for 20 years, and I have also made sound sculptures. Currently, I am building violas, electric basses and in a more experimental way microtonal harps, with which I have been doing musical experimentation. I am involved with improvisation and indeterminate scores, and I am currently working on a recording of Cornelius Cardew's "Treatise", a score that I have been analyzing for a couple of years.I am very interested in the construction of new musical instruments, and in combining classical instruments making with the new practices of sound art
