Who are 1ONCE1?
Francisco Noya and Miguel Noya, the forces behind 1ONCE1, have a long and devoted history within many facets of the music industry.
Miguel has been filling the electromagnetic spectrum with digitally processed sound waves for over 35 years. Upon completing his studies at Berklee College of Music and MIT (1978-1981) he returned to his native country of Venezuela where he managed to mix ethnic sources with modern nonconventional music to create his art.
Beyond his records and performances in a plethora of countries, Miguel has also collaborated with many great minds in the Dance, Theatre, Visual Arts, and Academic worlds. His projects have been shown on a planetary scale, including large audiovisual installations at the Venice Biennale in 1990, the Expo Lisbon ’98, and the Expo Aichi ’05 in Japan.
He was also responsible for “Netloops” (1996), one of the first electronic music concerts in real time via internet, along with his musical partner at “Dogon the band” Paul Godwin, which linked together the two remote locations of San Francisco and Caracas, Venezuela. Currently he is touring, performing, and recording in Europe.
Francisco is currently in his third season as Music Director of the Boston Civic Symphony Orchestra, and is a prominent figure in the Boston and New England music scenes, where he’s earned a reputation as a versatile interpreter of symphonic and operatic literature.
He has served as Music Director of the Longwood Symphony Orchestra in Boston, and Symphony by the Sea in Manchester. He served as the resident conductor of the Rhode Island Philharmonic Orchestra from 1996 until 2020. Noya is a respected member of the conducting faculty of the Berklee College of Music, where he was Music Director and conductor of the Berklee Contemporary Symphony Orchestra from 2008-2018, and actively engaged in the exploration of cutting-edge orchestral repertoire.
He has appeared as guest conductor of the Boston Pops, the Baltimore, Nashville, San Antonio, and Omaha Symphony Orchestras, and the Cape Cod Symphony, among others. In addition, he has performed internationally with orchestras in Argentina, Brazil, Peru, Austria, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Spain, Italy, and Russia. Francisco now lives and works in Nantucket, where he is also a member of the NCMC’s Advisory Council.
Together, the brothers dedicate their diverse musical talents to the exploration and creation of unique sonorities and live performance.
