ARTCO music workshop leader

I am a percussionist/composer specialized on contemporary music. I devote most of my time to interdisciplinary artistic projects.

I was born and raced in Mexico City having the opportunity to be in touch with several Mexican indigenous communities where many experiences and friends have substantially changed my life.

I have performed in all five continents collaborating with artists like Pierre Boulez, John Zorn, Steve Reich, Kaija Saariaho, Alvin Currant, Frederic Rzewski, Anthony Pateras, and John Luther Adams.

I am a member of the groups The Electronic Hammer, Insomnio ensemble, and Ear Massage percussion quartet with whom we were awarded 2nd prize at the Gaudeamus Interpreters Competition (2009) and 3rd Prize at the International Percussion Competition (2005).

At the moment I study a doctorate on music performance at McGill University with the financial support of the fellowships MIDAS, Schulich, and Provost.
