Premiere at Kalamazoo

The premiere of Amass for Clarinet and Computer by composer Christopher Biggs was a success. WMU is fortunate to have him as a faculty. I gave a clarinet masterclass and had time to get into the studio and record the piece (Plus, we made it into the Sunday news). I look forward to coming back to Kalamazoo.


It was my first time at Seamus (Society for Electro-Acoustic Music in the United States) and it was a great experience. I performed Jason Bolte’s With my Eyes Shut for clarinet and electronics. The great reverberation of the hall helped me blend with the fixed media quite well.

It was the final concert of the festival and we shared the program with legends such as Jon Appleton. A great honor!


What’s coming up on 2012

SEAMUS Festival in February and the world premiere of Christopher Bigg’s Amass, and incredible piece inspired by the popular movements in the middle East, Latin America and the US.


That was 2011

I have been away from the news for a while! The end of 2011 was filled with great things.  Some of them were:

Lectures at the Kansas City Art Institute, the University of Missouri-Kansas City and the University of Maryland.

Masterclass and recital at the University of Central Missouri. The audience was incredibly enthusiastic!

US Premiere of Nick Carswell’s Ghost/Wave for video and clarinet. A very powerful piece.

Livewire Festival 2012 at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. A nicely run festival.


Got Plastic?   

Composer Jorge Sosa just released his first CD entitled Plastic Time. Mauricio is featured on Refraction I, an electro acoustic piece influenced by Gregorian chant. Check out this and other pieces for flute, violin and trombone. Congratulations to Jorge! To learn more click here



Composer Christopher Biggs and Mauricio successfully completed their Fall 2010 tour visiting eight colleges in  the Midwest. They offered lectures, master classes and performances of music for clarinet and electronics.

Keep Austin Weird!

Mauricio and Christopher Biggs recently traveled to Austin, TX to perform at Clarinetfest 2010 as part of a recital entitled “Electronic Potpourri.”  Kudos to the International Clarinet Association and the clarinet professors at the University of Texas for a well-run festival, with great concerts and masterclasses.

The pieces performed were:

10 to the Negative Power of Minus 33 by Christopher Biggs and Refractions I by Jorge Sosa.


Recital in St. Louis

In May, Mauricio was selected as one of three winners of the Artist Presentation Society Audition-2010 held in St. Louis, MO.

On March 27, 2011 he will perform a recital for clarinet and piano as part of their 2010-11 series. To learn more click here


On May, 2010 Mauricio gave a master-class at the Universidad Javeriana in Bogotá, Colombia. The positive attitude and openness of the students and their interesting repertoire made this class a success (We even heard Madrigal by Mario Lavista!)
