The long awaited debut album from CLARAGUILAR. ‘Figura’ is landing via Lapsus Records on vinyl & digital formats, due out March 29th.

CLARAGUILAR is a Catalan composer and multi-instrumentalist moving simultaneously between the worlds of performing arts and cinema with her compositions for theatre, dance and film. She has become one of the most prominent names in the Spanish theatre scene when it comes to soundtrack and sound design creation for her unique soundscapes blending electronics, samples, and orchestral arrangements.

After a year full of success and awards from her soundtracks in films like “Suro”, “Self Tape” or “Creatura”, she unveils her debut album ‘Figura’ which she premiered in a spectacular live show at Sonar Festival in 2023. She brought the concept of an “invisible orchestra” to life with an incredible pixelated light-show with the help of Barcelona’s a/v designers Studio Oscila. Her live electronic instrumentation was presented in an elegant performance with expansive emotional range. ‘Figura’ went on to be performed at L.E.V., BAM, and Barcelona’s Auditorium.

‘Figura’ creates a space where electronica, ambient, and chamber-pop coexist; all under an operatic halo full of drama. She dives into melodic landscapes, merged with orchestral samples and chopped voices containing mysterious messages inside. 

Lapsus Records is a multidisciplinary platform founded in 2004 that has developed various complementary areas of activity including the weekly Lapsus program on Radio 3 (RNE), the artistic direction for the LAUT club in Barcelona as well as their sub-label, Balmat.

CLARAGUILAR will go on to perform ‘Figura’ on March 14 at Casa Montjuïc (Barcelona), April 13 at ZIP Fest (Catalonia’s National Theater), May 3 at Límbic (Santa Coloma de Gramenet, Spain), and May 18 at Embassa’t Festival (Sabadell, Spain) + more TBC.
