Trailer for the feature film “Los Condenados” for which I wrote the music and Lawson White produced and mixed the recordings at Avatar Studios, NYC.
Following my Ecstatic Fest appearance, Q2Music wrote a wonderful and beautiful profile of my music. I must say that I haven’t read anything yet that presents or describes such an accurate emotional connection to my works that I personally feel is very close to the goals I have with my music. I was asked to introduce some of my works which can be also heard online. Here’s a short quote from the article:
Angélica Negrón’s music is a whisper. A young composer, she has crafted a small oeuvre of concert works, each suffused with a kind of compassion, as if regarding something very small and delicate, but without condescension. She samples tiny noises, seemingly trivial sounds, and turns them into music. - Daniel Stephen Johnson
Ecstatic Fest was a great experience. Had so much fun and been so busy that I forgot to update my site these past couple of months. Our show got a group of great reviews including one from the New York Times. Also Brooklyn Vegan went to the concert and took a couple of pictures. Plus Q2 Music recorded it in its entirety and you can listen to it online! Full list of reviews and sources below.

From The Greene Space:
At the nexus of the active, New York-centric indie-classical scene, Merkin Concert Hall’s Ecstatic Music Festival is a ground-breaking series emphasizing vibrant, adventurous ensembles and unlikely collaborations between composers from the pop and classical realms. In this its second year, the festival returns with a star-studded line-up of artists from diverse musical backgrounds. Hosted by WQXR’s Terrance McKnight, Q2 Music’s preview concert features music and conversation with Ecstatic Music Festival composer-performersJason Treuting, Angélica Negrón, and Jherek Bischoff as well as a conversation with composer and festival founder and curator, Judd Greenstein.
