his new music have been performed at venues including UCLA’s Royce
Hall, RedCat in Disney Hall, the Getty Center, and Juilliard. He has
extensive film and commercial credits in both the United States and
Mexico. His practice
bridges music, film, and art installations,
from the futuristic cantina music heard in the film Total

experimental multimedia performances, works for large orchestra and
music for the theater.  His musical work is frequently informed
by cognitive aspects of music, the structure of myths, and rhetoric.
