Irene Galindo Quero is a Spanish composer, born in Granada in 1985.
Linguistics, literature and theories of perception have, from the beginning, played an important role in her work. She enjoys working along the threshold of music and language. Close observation of their common spaces often reveal the actual distances between these worlds.

Her works have been performed by, among others: Ensemble Surplus, Aleph Gitarrenquartett, Linea Ensemble Strasbourg, ensemble aisthesis, ensemble cross.art, ensemble alarm, and hand werk ensemble at Klangspuren Schwaz, Baden-Württemberg Literatur Sommer, Akademie der Künste Berlin, Mehrklang Festival Freiburg, Newcomer-Konzerten der Wittener Tagen für neue Kammermusik, new talents Köln, e-Werk Freiburg, Concertgebouw Brugge, Kulturbrauerei Berlin, and the Acht Brücken Festival Köln.
