In summary:

I make music.


The details:

I work primarily in the fields of art music, free improvisation, sound installation, and in collaboration with dance and video artists, where I seek to challenge ideas of processual fluency and development. Instead I look for new forms of sonic narrative based on static situations as objects of contemplation, articulating formal simplicity in brutal contrast with highly detailed textures.

I completed a PhD under Liza Lim, obtaining the “Vice-Chancellor’s Award for an outstanding Research Degree Thesis” at University of Huddersfield, where I also took editorial responsibility of issue 4 of the CeReNeM Journal. Previous degrees include MPhil from University of London, MA and Licentiate from Universidad de Chile, both awarded with ‘maximum distinction’. Besides formal studies, in 2006 a Chilean Arts Council scholarship allowed me to study composition privately with James Dillon in London. After years of nomadism, including residencies in Vienna and Mexico, I’m currently based in Perth, Western Australia.

My music is being widely performed in collaboration with some of today’s most prominent up-and-coming ensembles, such as CrossingLines (ES), Interface (DE), Hand Werk (DE), and Distractfold (UK). It has been presented in concerts in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Chile, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Netherlands, Poland, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, UK and USA. World premieres in festivals such as Impuls 2011, ISCM World Music Days 2012, Wittener Tage für neue Kammermusik 2013, ANODE 2014, Festival Mixtur 2015, and hcmf// 2013, 2014 & 2015. Radio broadcasts include BBC 3 (UK), Radio Klara (BE), WDR (DE), SRF (CH).
