Gabriel Pareyon

Gabriel Pareyon (born October 23 1974, Zapopan, Jalisco) is a Mexican composer and musicologist.

He studied at the Composers’ Workshop of the National Conservatoire of Music, Mexico City (1995-1998), with Mario Lavista, and he received bachelor and master degrees in composition at the Royal Conservatoire, The Hague (2000-2004), where he studied with Clarence Barlow. He is currently developing a doctoral research on cognition, language and music at the Faculty of Arts, University of Helsinki, under the supervision of Eero Tarasti.

His works selected for Thailand International Saxophone Competition for Composers (Bangkok, 2006, I Prize), the 2nd International Jurgenson Competition for young composers (Moscow, 2003, II Prize) and the 3rd Andrzej Panufnik International Composition Competition (Kraków, 2001, III Prize). His output as composer includes works for soloist and ensembles, choir, symphony orchestra, opera and music theatre. Although he experiments with Mexican traditional instruments, metres and phonetics from Nahuatl and Hñähñu, his music also combines wider aspects of linguistics and human speech, mathematical models (series, patterns, algorithms, etc.), and models coming from bird song and nonverbal communication.
