Xavier Bonfill (Barcelona, 1986) is a Catalan composer currently based in Copenhagen, Denmark. His pieces deal with the elasticity of time and different kinds of permeability and synesthesia between instrumental writing and electroacoustic material, between abstract and programatic concepts, and between sonic, visual and textual languages.
After studying composition in "Escola Superior de Música de Catalunya" (ESMUC) in Barcelona with Bernat Vivancos, he is continuing his studies in "Det Kongelige Dankse Musikkonservatorium" (DKDM) in Copenhagen with Niels Rosing Schow and Jeppe Just Christenensen.
He has written chamber music, interactive multimedia pieces, as well as he has written music for opera, theater, film and advertising. He won the Berliner Opernpreis in 2014 with the SpinOff Collective as he has received support from OSIC (Government of Catalonia) and Fundació Phonos (Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona), amongst others.
