Gustavo Aguilar

Gustavo Aguilar, percussionist, composer, and improviser, has been honing his craft as a music artisan for almost two decades.

His commitment to combining pre-composed (notated) and present-composed (improvised) musical elements has earned him the reputation as an 'intuitive, methodical mystic.' His music has been called 'beautiful, introspective and passionate,' 'thought-provoking and thoroughly fresh.'

A champion of Contemporary New Music, Gustavo has performed at major festivals throughout the Americas, Europe, Asia, and the Pacific, including IRCAM's Festival Agora (Paris), the Zagreb Biennale International Festival of New Music (Croatia), the Acousmania International Festival of Electro-Acoustic Music (Bucharest), the Jooksan International Arts Festival (Seoul), the Green Mills Project (Melbourne), the Los Angeles Philharmonic's Green Umbrella New Music Series, and the Interpretations Music Series (NYC) among others.
