Tomás Tello

Sound / Luxembourg

Born in 1981 in Lima, Peru. He had a deep interest in sound from a very early age. He studied harmony and composition with Jorge Madueño and guitar with Andrés Prado. From 2001 to 2002 he lived in Barcelona and attended the “Taller de Musics”, there he practiced the Oud with Gani Mirzo. Back in Lima he studied traditional peruvian guitar with Gustavo Urbina. From 2004 to 2006 he lived in Buenos Aires. There he studied Alexander Technique lesson with Jessica Nardelli and guitar lessons with Fernando Kabusacki. From year 2006 to 2009 he lived in Lima and was very active in the local musical enviroment.
He formed the duo “Shaolines del Amor” with Raúl Jardín and played many concerts in Perú and in Chile. He is established in Luxembourg since 2009 and works with choreographer Yuko Kominami , teaches guitar and music, runs Andesground music label and performs as a soloist or with E.T. duo with Elisabeth Flunger. His work is inspired by peruvian traditional music and environment sounds. He is also interested in the possibilities a musician has to multiply himself. In order to achieve this multiplicity he uses a varied setting of instruments that include D.I.Y. electronics, casette walkmans interference devices, guitars, samplers,voice, flutes , bells , etc. It is his intention to express concern for contemplation, patience and to establish a close, warm and joyful relation with the sounds that are around us.
