Antunes, Jorge, Brazilian composer and teacher; b. Rio de Janeiro, April 23, 1942. He enrolled at the National School of Music at the Univ. of Brazil in Rio de Janeiro in 1960 to study violin; then pursued training in composition and conducting there (from 1964) with Henrique Morelembaum, José Siqueira, and Eleazar de Carvalho; also took courses in physics at the Univ. and studied composition with Guerra Peixe at Rio de Janeiro’s Pró-Arte. In 1969–70 he held a postgraduate scholarship at the Torcuato Di Telia Inst. in Buenos Aires and studied with Ginastera, Luis de Pablo, Eric Salzman, Francisco Kröpfl, and Gerardo Gandini. Following research under König and Greta Vermeulen at the Inst. of Sonology at the Univ. of Utrecht (1970), he went to Paris to work with the Groupe de Recherches Musicales de TORTFF (1971–73) and to study with Daniel Charles at the Sorbonne (Ph.D. in music aesthetics, 1977, with the diss. Son Nouveau, Nouvelle Notation) . Antune’s avant-garde convictions prompted him to pursue experimental byways while he was still a student at the Univ. of Brazil when he founded the Chromo-Music Research Studio. In 1967 he organized the music research center and became a prof. of electro-acoustic music at the Villa-Lobos Inst. in Rio de Janeiro. In 1973 he became a teacher of composition at the Univ. of Brasilia, where he later served as prof. of composition and acoustics. He also oversaw its electronic music studio and founded the experimental music group GeMUnB. In 1972 he won Rio de Janeiro’s National Composition Competition, and in 1983 its Fuñarte Prize. In 1991 he was awarded the Vitae Prize of São Paulo.
