Claudia Robles Angel is an audiovisual artist born in Bogot‡-Colombia, currently living in Cologne-Germany and active worldwide.

She pursued postgraduate studies such as: Film Animation (1992-1993) at the CFP (Milan-Italy); MA in Visual Arts (1993-1995) at the ƒcole SupŽrieure d’Art Visuel (Geneva- Switzerland) and Sound Design and Electronic Composition at the Folkwang University Essen (Germany) with Prof. Dirk Reith (2001-2004).
Her work has been presented in festivals and in group and solo exhibitions around the globe, for example, the ZKM Center in Karlsruhe; the International Computer Music Conferences ICMC in Copenhagen and MontrŽal (2007/2009); the New York City Electroacoustic Music Festival NYCEMF (2010/2013); the SIGGRAPH Asia in Yokohama (2009); the Re-New Festival in Copenhagen (2011); the NIME Conference in Oslo (2011); more recently at the ‘Salon Suisse‘, an official collateral event of the 55th Venice Biennale (2013).
