Henry Vega, born in New York City (1973), is an active composer and performer of new music whose works appear in productions of theatre, dance and concert music that focus solely on modern artistic trends. His music ranges from virtuosic instrumental writings to subtle colourful compositions orchestrating traditional instrumentations with the world of electronic sound. His current interests lie within theatrical settings of his music in combination with video in the space of minimal aesthetics that crosses simple harmonies over noisy counterpoints. Vega's works have been performed at festivals and venues in Europe and the Americas often performing with his trio The Electronic Hammer and his electronic music theatre group The Spycollective. He has had the pleasure to write music for ensembles such as the MAE, VocaalLab, Ensemble Integrales and the Roentgen Connection.
