With an intimate relationship with the choral world, Eva Ugalde began to write music for white voices encouraged by Javier Busto, one of the pioneers of the new wave of composers that flourished at the end of the 20th century.
His particular language, perfectly intelligible in its complexity and organic for the singing voice, means that his works are performed all over the world, becoming obligatory pieces in the most prestigious choir competitions, such as the Tolosa International Competition.
Winner of several composition prizes, her music receives special reception in the United States, Canada, Japan or Sweden, countries that are at the forefront of a modernized choral world.
Eva Ugalde is regularly invited to be part of juries in contests such as San Vicente de la Barquera, La Antigua (now defunct) or in the Grand National Prize for Choral Singing (Ejea de los Caballeros, Gijón and Valladolid). Likewise, he has participated as a jury in international competitions such as the European Award for Choral Composers, Concorso Internazionale di Composizione “Guido d'Arezzo” (Firenze), Festivale Internazionale “Leonardo da Vinci”, Choir Festival “Johannes Brahms” (Wernigerode), International Festival of Women's Choirs in Latin America (Puerto Madryn) or the Biennial of Composition of ACORDELUR (Uruguay)
In recent years he has given both masterclasses focused on his work (Pyrenaeum Música, in Jaca, Spain or Movincanto in Cassano-Magnano, Italy, IV Diploma in Choral Conducting (on line) in Manizales, Colombia) as well as choral composition courses ( FENIARCO European Seminar for Composers in Aosta, Italy, FICFE, in Puerto Madryn, Argentina). As a speaker, the conference entitled "Composition from a female perspective" for the University of Valencia or "CompositorAs, the invisible history" for the International Festival of Women's Choirs in Latin America stands out.
In her role as director, she has been invited to Hungary to direct her works with the Cantemus Women's Choir of the Kodaly Institute, one of the world's leading leaders in its discipline.
His music has been recorded by different vocal groups and can be found on platforms such as YouTube, Spotify or Apple Music. In 2018 he personally participated in the recording of a monograph of his music for equal voices by the ALAIA female choir from Madrid, directed by Daniel de la Puente and Irene Alfageme on piano.
