Marcos Meza (August 1984) is a Berlin-based Chilean pianist and composer. He began playing classical piano at the age of seven, learning from his Polish mentor Ewa Jasinska. His work encompasses compositions for piano solo that explore new-classical sonorities inspired largely by Tonada (traditional Chilean music) and elements of electronic music. His concerts showcase the intimacy with which he plays the piano, and the ability to take the audience on a contemplative journey through Chile's landscapes, ranging from the mountains to the ocean, from north to south, painting scenes of folkloric imagery.
He complemented his classical training on the piano by studying popular music at the Modern School of Music and Dance in Santiago, Chile. During his teenage years, he started producing Hip Hop and gained experience as a member of various music projects. In 2006 he co-founded the rap jazz band, Como Asesinar a Felipes (Clouds Hill, Hamburg), which has had several international collaborations with artists such as Billy Gould (Faith No More), Chino Moreno (Deftones), among others. As an arranger, Meza has worked for almost two decades in the field of music production, visual media, dance and advertising. Some of his arrangements have been nominated to three Latin Grammy Awards in collaboration with Ana Tijoux and Alex Anwandter.
In 2015 Meza decides to move to Germany to expand his horizons as an artist, studying piano and composition with Tatjana Komarova, thus developing his own musical identity, playing in different stages of the experimental and modern classical music scene.
