Andrés Quezada was born in 1993 in Santiago, Chile. He has a degree in Composition and Percussion from the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile. He was drummer for the math rock band tortuganónima and currently is composer and performer in Narval Orquesta, an ensemble of ten musicians that explores an eclectic fusion of genres, from art rock, experimental pop, free jazz, electroacoustic music and various influences from contemporary classical music. He is the founder and director of the record label Narval, which creates, produces and distributes new experimental Chilean music. His music has been performed throughout Chile at numerous festivals and concerts, including the Festival de Música Contemporánea UC, Festival Ai-Maako, Laboratorio de Música Electroacústica Universidad de Chile, as well as in the United States, Japan, Germany, Mexico, Belgium and Spain.
Quezada's work focuses in the development of instrumental and electroacoustic music for orchestra, chamber ensembles and soloist performers. His music incorporates various eclectic stylistic elements that coexist in the same sound universe, thus converging contradictory and paradoxical materials that dialogue with each other. His interest in electroacoustic music has led him to develop extended sounds in traditional instruments, thus creating music with new and divergent tonal and sonic possibilities, exploring the crossings between acoustic and electronic media.
