a brief bio
Quite early in the studies I started experimenting with compositional forms and realized that I enjoy working with a few chosen fragments, which develop in time.
Parallel to these, since 2015, with some early-age experience in singing, I started experimenting with my voice – rather a high soprano – wrote some pieces for it and performed them, and also sang in several performances of works of my colleges' and of other composers.

As a chaotic person, I envy people who are more disciplined and organized than me. I often look for ways to organize and categorize my thoughts and work. Structure and form are essential elements in my artistic work. I try to develop an inner logic for the forms I create. This logic isn't necessarily obvious to the audience, but it helps me define a path, so I know where to start, where to go, and how to finish.
One of my first attempts at organizing my work was to define series into which I could categorize my compositions. For each series I defined characteristics and based on these characteristics I composed concepts and pieces. One of these series is called "Names" and includes pieces such as "Richard" for amplified guitar, "Margaret" for tape, and "Suzanne" for solo soprano. Each of these pieces has a meaning to her name, like "Suzanne" who is a crazy woman getting ready for a party that doesn't exist. "Margaret," a tape play that claims in the recording that she is actually a piece and that she shall age for four minutes.
Another series is called "cosas pequeñas" (translated: tiny things), a series of miniatures for different duos.
