Gonçalo Gato was born in Lisbon, Portugal. His works have been performed in UK, Canada, Germany, France, Portugal and Brazil. He was one of the Panufnik Composers associated with the London Symphony Orchestra in 2016-17 and became Young Composer in Residence at Casa da Música during the year 2018. He is currently a Soundhub Associate at the LSO. As a composer, Gonçalo has worked with some of UK’s foremost orchestras: the London Symphony Orchestra, which publicly rehearsed Fantasia (2017), the BBC Symphony Orchestra, whose musicians premiered his octet Vacuum Instability (2013), and the Britten Sinfonia, developing the piece Colour Matters (2016) after having been shortlisted in the OPUS 2016 competition. He has also worked with distinguished ensembles such as Remix Ensemble (Portugal), ensemble recherche (Germany), CHROMA Ensemble (UK) and Sond’Ar-te Electric Ensemble (Portugal). François-Xavier Roth, Peter Rundel, Baldur Brönnimann and Richard Baker, feature among the conductors which have performed his music. Before moving to London in 2011, Gonçalo was awarded first prize on two occasions: in 2011 with the piece Vectorial-modular, for orchestra, and in 2008 with the piece Derivação, for piano. As composer-researcher, Gonçalo has been most active in the field of computer-assisted composition. He recently finished his doctoral degree at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama under the supervision of Julian Anderson, researching how the use of computerised processes affects compositional decision-making. This research led to the publication of a chapter in the OM Composer’s Book 3 (2016), published by IRCAM (Paris), an institution where he has received training and at which he was invited to present ongoing research. He is now exploring computer-assisted orchestration as the orchestra has become an important medium to express his musical ideas.
