Camila Agosto has received a 2023 Berlin Prize Fellowship in music composition. The Berlin Prize is awarded annually to US-based scholars, writers, composers and artists who embody the highest degree of excellence in their respective disciplines. From the Berlin Prize's announcement, Agosto's project is described below:
"Agosto’s recent work has been inspired by linked concepts of memory, perception, psychoacoustics in sound and music, and experiences with PTSD, trauma, and dementia, as she seeks to understand the ways in which music and the arts are linked with memory and embodied experiences. At the Academy, Agosto will develop new works, including electroacoustic pieces for mixed instrumentation that incorporate her research in somatic experiences and sound healing, custom instrument design and fabrication, and eventual VR installation."
