Who We Are
Encounter of Santander
Born in La Piedad, Mexico, in 1987. Since 2023, he studies at the Reina Sofía School of Music’s Composition Chair with professor Fabián Panisello. He has been granted scholarships by Gina Díez Barroso and Fundación Albéniz and an accommodation scholarship by Santander México.
He began his musical training in Morelia under the guidance of Maestro Manuel Torres Cosío. In 2005 he entered the School of Fine Arts at the Michoacan University of San Nicolas of Hidalgo. In 2011, he joined the National Music Conservatory of Mexico to study Coral Conducting and, later, he studied analysis and composition at the composition workshop with Mario Lavista and Armando Luna Ponce. Simultaneously he combined it with his composition studies with Juan Cristóbal Cerrillo.
In 2018, he studied at the School of Music of the University of Mexico with Julio Estrada. During the pandemic and together with two other members, he founded the Ars Nova Project, an independent space for creation, reflection and spreading of contemporary music in Mexico and they launched their first album “El sonido distante para cuartetos de cuerdas” and, years later, they released a recording for violin solo and another for percussion with the collaboration of more musicians and composers extending their experience and fostering Mexican youth composers’ creation. Since 2022 he is developing the community music project which, thanks to the support of Ibermúsica, will make it possible to bring contemporary music closer to the communities where concepts such as syncretism, colonialism and decolonisation will be questioned through the discovery of the community's own sound environment in Mexico City.
