Since the day I first came in contact with music, I've felt a great connection I have never wanted to lose. It is the first thing that, with confidence, had me saying "this is what I want to do for the rest of my life"
Venezuelan musician and guitar player Luis D’Elias first got into music at age 14, when for the first time, after mandatory music lessons, a teacher motivated him to develop his musical skills. At that moment, he began studies at the Olga Lopez Conservatory, where he took 2 years of classical training in different areas, such as piano, guitar and choir. Later, he participated in the 2004 Berklee Summer Performance Program, which got him into jazz theory and contemporary music.
Afterwards, he enrolled at the Taller de Jazz Caracas, founded by renowned bass player Oscar Fanega, where he began developing his skills in different areas of jazz under the guidance of musicians like Pedro Barboza, Luca Vincenzetti and Hugo Fuguet, each very known within the Venezuelan music scene.
At the same time, he was undertaking studies in Electronics Engineering at the prestigious Simon Bolivar University in Caracas, from which he received a bachelor’s degree with honors in 2011. Right after that, he finally applied to Berklee College of Music for full time studies, where he obtained a partial scholarship and is now pursuing a double diploma in Film Scoring and Electronic Production and Design.
As a composer, he has already scored 10 student short films, and most recently a full-length documentary titled El Camino de La Voluntad. He also has experience with video game scoring and creating underscore for different types of visual media. As a performer, he has shared the stage with Venezuelan artists like Francisco Vielma, Diego Maldonado and Fabio Rojas. Also, he has experience as a pit musician for different musical theater productions.
He has also had experience as the bandleader of Venezuelan prog-rock band Systaltic, and later of his own band, with which he recorded his first demo as a solo jazz artist in 2010. Currently he is working as an arranger for several musical theater productions in Berklee, as well as leading a new band in order to show his own music, which is a blend of traditional Venezuelan influences, mixed with contemporary jazz and rock.
