Originally from Morelia, Michoacán, he recently received his composition degree at Mexico’s Escuela Superior de Música. He studied composition with José Luis Castillo and Germán Romero, electroacoustic music with Carole Chargeron and is also trained as a percussionist. López is part of the WhiteNoise collective, which organizes an electronic music festival in Mexico City. Recent commissions include one from Mexico’s Contemporary Music Experimentation and Production Center (CEPROMUSIC). He states that his compositions aim to “separate the act of sound creation from narrative implications.”
