Passion for music and for people
The passion of Mauricio for music is as strong as his passion for motivating people on his journey through life. That is the reason his work on electric bass is a constant testimony in the search for new possibilities with the instrument. Due to this, in his role as a soloist and as a member of diverse bands, he has recorded several albums, live DVDs, done multiple tours in his home country, Chile, and abroad, performed concerts, festivals, clinics and talks; he has played alongside a symphonic orchestra, as well as being a finalist and winner of the Pulsar Chilean Music Awards (kind of Chilean Grammys) and being sponsored by prestigious brands of musical instruments and equipment. To all this is also added a talk he made a few years ago for the prestigious foundation TED.
His passion for electric bass has led him to generate a solo repertoire with an unique style, consisting of pieces from a classical and popular repertoire, along with his compositions and playing them with his own identity. This is reflected in his two solo albums "Solo Pieces for Electric Bass" (2015) and "The Four Seasons" (2017), the latter a milestone in electric bass history being the first time that a musician does the complete electric bass transcription for Antonio Vivaldi's masterpiece. Along with that, Mauricio is already working on his next album to be published in early 2018.
