To Ferreyra, composing is a physical process. The film gives a deep insight into Beatriz Ferreyra’s  research, her working methods and the genesis of her music.  But it also follows the tracks that lead Ferreyra to music and the life of a composer, revealing her unique and charismatic personality.

“I didn’t have anything. I didn’t have a doctorate, I wasn’t a master. I didn’t have any diploma. Nothing. I was nothing. I had only my ears – that’s all.” – Beatriz Ferreyra

Beatriz Ferreyra is best known as an electroacoustic composer, who studied with both Nadia Boulanger and Earle Brown, among others, and who worked for much of the 1960′s at Pierre Schaeffer’s GRM in Paris. Ferreyra has remained active in the five decades since her initial experimentations, including a stint at the Institute for Electroacoustic Music in Bourges and work in the field of music therapy. Since 2014 Ferreyra is Member of Honour of the CIME/ICEM. In 2015 her GRM Works was released via Recollection GRM in collaboration with the Viennese label Editions Mego, and the pairing of archival recordings with more recent compositions showcased a remarkable consistency and purity of artistic vision. The Heroines of Sound Festival 2016 dedicated a particular focus on the music of Beatriz Ferreyra and Christine Groult..

“GRM veteran Beatriz Ferreyra is carrying Pierre Schaeffer’s utopian musique concrète into the future.” – The Wire
