Marcos Meza  - Chilean Pianist & Composer
About,

Marcos Meza is a Chilean pianist and composer living in Berlin. He began playing at the age of seven learning from his Polish mentor Ewa Jasinska. Now his musical journey encompasses compositions for solo piano that explore impressionistic and cinematographic sonorities inspired largely by the Tonada (traditional Chilean music) and use of electronic textures. His concerts stand out for his intimacy with the piano, and the ability to take the audience on a contemplative journey through Chile's own landscapes. Between the mountains and the sea, from north to south, in an imaginary folklore.

Classically trained on the piano, he studied 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 Chino Moreno (Deftones), Mad Professor, among others. Also a producer and arranger, his incessant bond with musicians of different genres has marked a creative versatility in him that has further grown during his years living in Germany.
