Alejandro T. Acierto is a clarinetist, composer, and multimedia artist whose innovative work in contemporary music, performance art, and art installation has led Time-Out New York to call him a “maverick.” He employs a multi-media aesthetic integrating music, sound, performance, and installation that explores notions of fluid identities and the slippages of cultural definitions. His musical and performative works have been performed by the International Contemporary Ensemble, thingNY, Loadbang in New York, and Vox Humana in Montreal. He has exhibited installations at the Arts in Bushwick SITEFEST in Brooklyn and as part of the New Voices In Live Performance show at the Center for Performance Research. He had his first solo exhibition at Untitled Gallery at Marwen in Chicago and his work stolen synthesis no. 1 has also been distributed by Trifecta Publishing for their premiere art box edition. Acierto has attended residencies at the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, the Banff Centre in Canada, and High Concept Laboratories in Chicago. An avid performer of contemporary classical music, he is also a founding member of Ensemble Dal Niente with whom he was awarded the Kranichsteiner Music Prize for Interpretation at the International Summer Courses for New Music in Darmstadt.
