Biography

I am a Chilean composer.

My work mainly explores timber by means of manipulating and orchestrating complex sounds that, varied and transformed, are developed in time aiming to build a poetical musical discours. The use of informatics tools in order to extract musical material from the analysis of these sounds, the integration of the space and the body of the performers as perceptual parameters, the exploration of relationships between the written score and improvisation, the use of live electronics as an extension of the instrument sonorities or the research of new instrumental technics are some of my main interests.

This exploration has been possible thanks to continuos collaborations with artists of my generation, conceiving new projects that resemble common questions, including artists such as Standardmodell, Achtung, the TNS school of theatre, Angèle Chemin, Marie-Claudine Papadopoulos, Violaine Debever, the Ensemble Maja or the Ensemble C Barré.

I studied composition at the Universidad Católica de Chile, then at the composition class of Stefano Gervasoni at the Paris Conservatory. The encounter with Gervasoni, as well as other composers, such as Chaya Czernowin, Philippe Manoury, Alberto Posadas, Yan Maresz, Hèctor Parra or Brian Ferneyhough, were very important to forge a personal language and an original musical project.
I attended the Cursus 1 & 2 at IRCAM in Paris, between 2013 and 2015.

I have received distinctions including the Musica Festival Academy’s prize or the CDMC prize at the INJUVE academy in Madrid, and commissions from the Ministère de la Culture et de la Communication de France, the Royaumont Fondation, the Diotima String Quartet, the Conservatoire de Musique et de Danse de Paris, the Festival Messiaen, the Forum International de Création Musicale et Théâtrale d’Annecy, the ensemble C Barré and the Musica Festival at Strasbourg. I was artist in residence at the Camargo Foundation in 2017.
