Ernesto Estrella is an educator, poet, and musician born in Granada who has lived in New York since 2000. He completed his Ph.D. at Columbia University, and between 2007 and 2011 he was a professor of Contemporary Poetry at Yale University´s Spanish and Portuguese department. Since the spring of 2012 he has turned to Berlin as a second base for his artistic and academic work. Ernesto has authored several books and articles on poetry theory and criticism, and his Spanish translation of Thoreau´s Journals has just been published. As a poet, his latest book Boca de prosas (Prosemouths), appeared in 2014, and is now being translated into English and German. Fragments of his current project, the experimental poem-novel, Escuela de tu nombre, have already appeared in poetry magazines. His multimedia book Achronos was part of CUNY´s Virtual Poetry Project: http://nml.cuny.edu/poetryproject/vpp/index.php/vpp/issue/view/2/showToc. As a musician, he concentrates on the voice’s potential to explore the poetic process through sound. Since his arrival to Berlin, he has become a founding member of the international quartet Berlin Sound Poets Quoi Tête, and he has created a band, Far Beyond Driven, that explores improvisational and compositional possibilities through original tunes.
