CONCERTS SERIES & WORKSHOPS:
Curt0-Circuito de Música COntemporânea
A educational and artistic project, focused on the music of young Brazilian composers and on fostering experimental music in Brazilian society.
Its second edition happened in August 2015, and brought to Brazil saxophonist Allison Balcetis and pianist Roger Admiral. Since 2014 the project has been responsible for 33 premieres by 30 different composers across 9 concerts. While its second edition is still underway through a number of professional development initiatives, a third edition is currently being planned to happen in August 2017.

BU LAPTOP ORCHESTRA
Starting in the fall of 2017, I will be directing a newly created digital ensemble at Boston University. More details regarding our season, format, and programming will be coming soon.
This project is made possible by the generous support of an Arts Grant from The BU Arts Initiative – Office of the Provost.
Theater & Dance
Since 2008 I have worked on a number of projects outside the scope of concert music. These have been extremely rewarding and I look forward to future opportunities to collaborate with artists from different fields.
I would especially welcome projects that seek to build from the work of Grotowski who has become a central reference to my understanding of art.
