About Mario Diaz de Leon

Mario Diaz de Leon is an acclaimed composer and performer, whose work encompasses modern classical music, experimental electronic music, extreme metal, and creative improvised music.

His classical works are noted for their bold combination of acoustic instruments and electronics, and are documented on four full length recordings. Working extensively with NYC based collaborators including ICE, Talea, TAK Ensemble, and Mivos Quartet, his music has been celebrated over the last decade for its “hallucinatory intensity” (New York Times), “snarling exuberance” (Pitchfork), “helter-skelter, electronically enhanced cadenzas” (New Yorker Magazine), and coupling of “crystalline clarity with the disorienting turbulence of a sonic vortex” (Wire Magazine).  His most recent, entitled “Cycle and Reveal” was released by Denovali in September of 2019.
