Biography

born in Cali, Colombia, august 22, 1977.
 
1995-1998 Universidad Nacional de Colombia under the tutorship of Roberto García, Horacio Lapidus, Hegberto Bermúdez, Angela Rodríguez and Blás E. Atehortua, among many others.
During 1997 composition with Juan C. Marulanda at the Pontificia Universidad
Javeriana thanks to a scholarship given by the Fundación Mazda para el Arte y la
Ciencia.
Between 1998 and 2000 analysis and composition lessons with Rodolfo Acosta R. This encounter influenced my way of thinking about music from there on.
At the end of 1998, without having finished my studies, and after having failed in my effort of adapting to the academy, I decided to interrupt my studies and dedicate myself to composition as a full-time activity.
 
In 2001 I moved to Basel, Switzerland, where I studied composition with Detlev Müller-Siemens and Erik Oña, and other subjects with Dorothé Schubarth, Roland Moser, Hanspeter Aeschlimann, Markus Jans, Hans Saner and Jakob Ullmann, among others.
 
Seminars, courses and workshops in Colombia, Spain, Hungary, Germany and Switzerland, as well as composition masterclasses with Coriun Aharonian, Graciela Paraskevaidis, Beat Furrer, Michael Jarrell, Jonathan Harvey, Marco Stroppa, Klaus Huber, Mark Andre, Brice Pauset and Helmut Lachenmann, among others.
 
In 2008 I assisted the german composer Jakob Ullmann (*1958) in the realization of the electronic part of his piece PRAHA: celetná-karlova-maiselova, commissioned by the Deutschlandfunkf, and premiered at the Forum für Neue Musik 2008 in Cologne, Germany.
 
My music has been played in Colombia, Mexico, Switzerland, Germany, Poland, USA and Hungary, by ensembles such as Tambuco, Ensemble Phoenix Basel, Ensamble CG, Ensemble Proton Bern, Eunoia Quintett, Geneva Camerata, Ensemble Aventure Freiburg, Quatuor Voce Paris and by the Basel Symphony Orchestra.
 
I live with my wife and children in Basel, where I work as a freelance composer, as well as for the International Society for Contemporary Music Basel.
Swiss citizen since 2015.
