Luis Azcona is a contemporary percussionist based on Bern, Switzerland. He’s specialized on Sound Arts and Chamber music, although his career as a soloist accumulates awards, recognitions by numerous foundations (Lyra, Hirschmann) as well as concerts, talks and masterclasses.
Student of Brian Archinal in HKB, Luis bases his work on the exploration between poetry, sociology and politics. His aesthethic universe is situated between noise, post-percussion, historical approach of contemporary music, and an avant-garde taste of the art experience.
He has collaborated closely with composers such as Alberto Bernal, Wojtek Blecharz, Yiran Zhao, Michael Maierhof or Arturo Corrales, detailing their pieces and doing studio recordings of several of them. He’s also premiered pieces by Voro García, Marina Picaporte, Christian Spitzenstaetter, Alberto Bernal (2021), Wataru Mukai, Gemma Ragués o David Julián Carrillo.
He has been directed by conductors as Peter Rundel, Nacho de Paz, Peter Eötvos or Fabián Panicello, and collaborated with ensembles as Nuevo Contemporáneo, NEKO3, Freixenet, Me.Da. or Academia para la Nueva Música, having a solid experience on chamber music.
He’s part of collectives of new creation as Cuarto de Tono or LiQen.
