About Isa

Originally from the Basque region (Spain/France) and trained as a classical musician (Le Conservatoire/ piano), I am a composer, singer/songwriter based in London/UK.

I have worked extensively for film, theatre, dance and performance as well as producing songs. I have scored a wide range of films for Television and Independent Film from emotional psycho- dramas, to adventure documentaries, socio-political, visual art and animation such as BBC, Channel 4, National Geographic, Sexta/Spain, France 3.

My compositions and songs are eclectic (classical, electronic, jazz, urban and experimental) and have been published and broadcast worldwide.

I have collaborated with The London Contemporary Chamber Orchestra,The Marsyas Trio Ensemble; musicians from English National Opera, South Bank Sinfonia; Inner Vision Ensemble, Transglobal Underground and established choirs in UK and South Africa.

Key to my practice is collaboration and participation. I often work with people living at the nexus of political, mental health or environmental situations. I seek to articulate diverse lived experiences and bring together new dialogues, musical techniques and audiences often devised with community input. My work is often created and produced in collaboration with other musicians, artists, film makers, community groups, grassroots orgs and NGO’s, especially in deprived areas or with vulnerable people.

Nagarkot, Nepal

I have created a number of sound installations and soundtracks that explore these subjects through performance, music, visual art and lyrics. Some of this work has been exhibited at leading London galleries including Tate Britain, Barbican Arts Centre, Whitechapel Art Gallery and South London Gallery. These projects have also led me to collaborate, perform and exhibit with other communities, musicians and artists in UK, South Africa, Lebanon and Argentina, including Amnesty International, Greenpeace, Platform, Extinction Rebellion, WarChild, Art Angel, Glastonbury Festival, Cape Town 09 Art and Berlin Bienales.
