Interview for SIP – SoundLAB Interview project

Born in Guatemala city, Guatemala the 2nd of May 1972. Luis begins his musical studies in the mid 80´s in “Conservatorio Nacional de Música” in Guatemala city. In 1994 he moves to Montevideo, Uruguay, to continue his music studies and to start his Art studies in “Escuela Nacional de Bellas Artes”. There, he specializes on Sculputure and Multimedia art. In 2003 he begins experimenting with Sound Scapes and Sound Art. Because of the distance between his native and his new homeland, he developes a special interest in the sounds of his native land Guatemala. He starts building a sound archive of in-site recordings and uses them to create or “re-create” the sounds in his memories. Since 2004 he works as a Sound Technician in a recording studio, doing TV and Radio commercials, Interviews for Radio programs and recording many musical styles, from Tango to Heavy Metal. He is now working in Sound Scapes
