Eduardo Ángel Aguilar Vásquez (b. 8 September 1991, Ocotlán de Morelos, Mexico) is a Mexican composer.
Aguilar studied composition at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), where he was supported by the PUIC, a scholarship system for indigenous students and members of original towns. His thesis Self-reflection was distinguished with honors in 2018, in which Eduardo investigates his own creative process, addressing issues around concepts of idea, imagination, perception, representation, thought, design, and reality.
Pictorial scores, a black umbrella, percussion machines, paper, bags, or instructions for musicians to build sculptures with their instruments are elements that appear in his compositions. He has expanded his musical practice to create audiovisual projects, from videos and documentaries to GIF collages. In his works one encounters scripts, poems, graphics, or instructions to recite text. Recent multidisciplinary projects involve: poetry and graphics; geophysics and performance; history, scene, dance, and music; poly-sensorial sculptures and spaces; humor and text.
