He studies with Miller Puckette, Philippe Manoury, F. Richard Moore, Gerald Balzano, David Wessel, amongst others. He is currently assistant to composer Roger Reynolds. In Lima, he studied theory and composition with José Sosaya and briefly in the National Conservatory of Music and LIEM-CDMC in Madrid.
His current production consists of composed pieces (for computer, instruments and mixed), sound performance and installation. His research explores the history of electronic music, particularly, the multiple expressions of live performance with computers - interactivity, digital-electronic instruments, etc. Although historic, this research is informed by concepts and ideas from gesture, human-computer interaction, philosophy, cognitive science and critical and media theory.
Some recognitions include scholarships from the Fulbright Commission, the University of California and the Ministry of Culture of Spain. He recently obtained the 1st prize in the Guthman Musical Instrument Competition at the Georgia Tech Center for Music Technology. He is member of the board of directors of Realidad Visual, an organization for experiments in culture and electronic arts and of VAE, Lima's Video/Art/Electronics festival.
