Y No Había Luz

"Website for the experimental theater company from Puerto Rico Y No Había Luz which works with puppets, masks and unusual objects. I visit this website weekly because their images are always very inspiring. I have collaborated with them writing music for their plays since they started five years ago and they've had a great influence in my work as a composer."

The Rest Is Noise

"Articles, a blog, and a book by the music critic of The New Yorker Alex Ross. I visit this website on a regular basis to learn about recent performances, new recordings and everything related to recent and new music. Being a composer in NYC, this website offers not only some interesting and entertaining reads but also an invaluable list of great resources related to new music."


"E-zine of the American Music Center with news and articles on contemporary American music. I visit this website frequently to read interviews, articles and discussions about contemporary music and to listen to their great internet radio station, Counterstream. As a composer, the "NewMusicBox" is a great resource in keeping up with the performers and composers of our time as well as the spaces were all this music is taking place."

MATA Festival

"MATA is a non-profit organization that has, for the past twelve years, been dedicated to commissioning and presenting works by young composers from around the world. I visit this website on a regular basis to learn about upcoming events and opportunities related to the new music scene in NYC. MATA offers valuable connections and great opportunities to young musicians such as the curatorial associate program which mentors and educates young artists interested in concert production and which I'm currently participating in."

El FABlog

"Blog by the creative team from the radio show "Frecuencias Alternas" which airs every Saturday night on the University of Puerto Rico's radio station. I visit this website frequently to keep up with the scene in the Island. The show supports local bands and has featured both of my groups a few times on the air.
