Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, he obtained his Diplôme National Supérieur Professionel de Musicien from the Haute École des Arts du Rhin - Académie Supérieure de Musique de Strasbourg in 2023.
He is also a graduate of the National University of the Arts ( Bachelor's degree in musical arts-composition) and the Manuel de Falla Higher Conservatory of Music (musician-guitarist). He currently lives and works in Strasbourg, France, where he is pursuing a Master's degree in composition with Daniel D'Adamo and in electroacoustic creation with Tom Mays. He is also studying for a Master's degree in Composition Creative Practice at the Hochschule der Künste Bern (Switzerland) with Xavier Dayer and Simon Steen-Andersen.
His works have been premiered by Ensemble Accroche Note, Ensemble Linea, Nuntempe Ensemble, among others. He participated in several workshops given by Bryan Fernyhough, Steve Reich, Salvatore Sciarrino, Terry Riley and Heiner Goebbels, among others. He won the 2018 National Arts Fund Creation Award for his lyric drama project Una Red de Mirada, el hombre y su dolerme (based on texts by Hugo Mujica).
He has been selected as composer-in-residence at the Studio éOle in Blagnac, at the Centre d'exploration et de création artistique in Logelloù, Brittany, at the Mixtur 2021 Festival in Barcelona, Spain, at the Centre de l'expérimentation at the Teatro Colón, in Nanóperas, at the Teatro Nacional Cervantes and at the Centro Cultural Kirchner (Concert with Terry and Gyan Riley).
As an arranger and musician, he has taken part in various popular and academic music groups performing in different concert halls in Argentina, Spain, France, Belgium, Italy, Switzerland, Peru, Paraguay and other countries. He composed and performed the music for the short film Together and alive by director Iara Schteimberg (awarded at the Tel Aviv International Student Film Festival, Israel, 2017).
Upcoming projects for 2024 include creations for the Love Music Ensemble in Strasbourg, the Proxima Centauri Ensemble in Bordeaux and various mixed works with students from the Bern University of the Arts and the Strasbourg University of the Arts. Influenced by literature and the visual arts, his music frequently explores intertextual processes and counterpoint techniques, as well as researching and reflecting on timbre in constant dialogue with electronics. Adhering to the idea of the Musée Sonore Imaginaire, considering that each gesture has a precedent, a possible evocation, a genealogy, a network of temporalities, views and thoughts, his compositions seek different sound morphologies from which to pursue research and creation.
