Originally from Aguascalientes, Mexico, Luis began an early career as a pianist, and his interest in composition emerged by performing contemporary music. He has had multiple works commissioned, with premieres in Italy, Canada, and Mexico. His work Chido was premiered by the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra during the WNMF 2018 as winner of the CMC Emerging Composer Competition and awarded the first prize of the Sir Ernest MacMillan Awards of the SOCAN Foundation. Other prestigious awards include the OAC Music Creation Projects Grant with Amarras Tango Quintet and the Joseph-Armand Bombardier CGS Doctoral Award. He was recently selected as a Composer Fellow for the Hamilton Philharmonic Orchestra.
An eclectic musician, Luis has toured as a classical pianist, conducted the Brandon Community Orchestra, presented his academic research, and is a member of the Amarras Tango Quintet. He is pursuing doctoral studies at York University in Toronto with Randolph Peters exploring the digital landscape for music-making and our pernicious dynamics with the internet.
