Guilherme Rodrigues is a cellist, improviser, sound explorer and composer from Lisboa, Portugal.
He was born in 1988 and started to study cello and trumpet when he was seven at Orquestra Metropolitana de Lisboa and later in Conservatório Nacional de Música de Lisboa to study classical and music theory until his twenty-three.
With an intuitive approach to improvisation and exploration of the timbres,
using both classical and extensive techniques, his music is exciting, polyrhythmic and full of contrasts. His work probes the physicality of the space in which listening occurs. His music, comprising both acoustic and electro-acoustic works has been described as delicate, intense, focused and physical.
Apart from work in music ensembles ranging for contemporary classical to free improvisation, he often works with dancers. Has created music aswell for theater, radio, television and silent film.
He is part of Creative Sources Recordings record label, music director of Hosek Contemporary Art Gallery and active member of Reanimation Orchestra.
Has been following a professional career in music since 1997 and performs in concerts and workshops around Europe and Asia. Currently living in Berlin.
