Wikipedia translation from Spanish.

Alejandro Iglesias Rossi is a songwriter Argentine researcher and educator. He has received two emblematic musical distinctions of UNESCO : "First Prize International Rostrum of Composers "( Paris , 1985) for his work Rites Ancestral a Forgotten Culture, and the "First Prize International Rostrum of Electroacoustic Music " ( Amsterdam , 1996) for his work Angelus.

Production of Iglesias Rossi reflects a paradoxical spirit. He is an artist who belongs to his time, in language, but whose search path approaches the medieval mystical side rather than the air of the end of s. XX. True to its Latin American origin, his works hold local color in text and sound materials and their apocalyptic vision translates into a voltage which the listener can hardly escape.
