Luis Maurette & Pablo Paz

Luis Maurette is an Argentinian-born electronic musician, sound and multimedia artist currently living between Buenos Aires, New York and Oakland. A nomad since childhood, Luis' artistic vision is born out of his many homes throughout North and South America; the natural world, and the different indigenous people who have inhabited these places across the continent.

He received a BA in both Music Production and Engineering and Music Synthesis from Berklee College of Music and attended the French institute CCMIX in Paris to study electronic music. He more recently completed an MFA in Electronic Music and the Recording Media from Mills College in Oakland, California. He has performed and released music, among other places, in USA, Argentina, Colombia, Mexico, France, Sweden, Spain, Italy and Brazil. He is also co-founder of the environmentally conscious NY-based art non-profit artist organization Eidolon Culture and Production Manager for the San Francisco based nonprofit, Nexmap. 

His work delves into several worlds, including improvisation, production, electro-acoustic composition, video, art/sound installation and multimedia performances. Among his numerous collaborators are Alejandra Ortiz, Luciana Sanz [aka lu(x)z], June Watanabe, Ben Bracken, Gregg Kowalsky, Rhea Volij and Joo Won Park.

His music is a continuous exploration of nature, ancestry, culture and spirit, a practice that is in constant growth and is directly influenced by the indigenous essence that is universal to all human origin.
