After completing a Music Teaching Diploma in Argentina and starting a guitar performance career, I lived in Paris and London, studying at the Université de Paris-Sorbonne, where I received my BMus, MMus and PhD in History of Music and Musicology. As tenured professor at Universidad Nacional del Litoral in Argentina for a decade, I taught undergraduate and graduate courses related to musicological research and history of music. I also led two consecutive four-year research projects on the interrelationship of the arts, participated in the organization of various conferences, and edited a collected volume, among other publications. I collaborate regularly with pianist Alexander Panizza in different audiovisual events.
Exploring the relationship across music, visual arts and literature in modernism and contemporary art, my work has been published internationally and has received awards in the fields of musicology and art critique. I have also curated an exhibition called “Dialogue of the Muses: Music and Visual Arts,” featuring contemporary artists and composers. As 2018/19 Visiting Research Fellow at Ryerson University's Modern Literature and Culture Research Centre, I am investigating on the significance of music and sound in Florine Stettheimer’s paintings and poems under the supervision of Dr. Irene Gammel, and leading a workshop on research across the arts.
My research on artist Xul Solar was recognized by its contribution to the fields of musicology (Distinguished Mention in the I Gourmet Musical International Competition in Research on Latin American Music) as well as art critique (Best Essay of the Year, Argentine Association of Art Critics), both in Buenos Aires.
As a guitar performer, I was awarded first prize in a local competition in my home town (Rosario), and later received a scholarship from the Spanish government to participate in the prestigious International Summer Course on Spanish Music “Música en Compostela.”
I have supervised more than 50 undergraduate dissertations on a wide variety of topics (ranging from tango to hip hop, from Indigenous music to performance practice issues, from Igor Stravinsky to Leo Brouwer, from afro-Argentinian candombe to vocal techniques in contemporary music). At the moment, I am supervising two doctoral dissertations (one on Sound Art, at Universidad del Litoral in Santa Fe, and the other on Ginastera’s Late Style, at Universidad Católica Argentina, in Buenos Aires).
Even if this is my first year at Laurier, I am already impressed by the sense of community that is prevalent in campus. I also find that the students are very participative and eager to learn, which helps to create the right energy in class to be able to explore together the proposed material and make it relevant to their own interests.
