Tomás Gueglio Saccone
Tomás Gueglio (he/him/his) is an Argentine composer currently based in Chicago. His music has been described as “immediately captivating” (I Care If You Listen), “touchingly harmonic” (Chicago Classical Review) and of “an exquisite weight” (Best of Bandcamp). In his creative work, Tomás strives to devise surreal and idiosyncratic sound worlds through the blending of different mediums and musical lineages. Metaphors central to his recent work are private languages, the logic of dreams, and, as of late, melodramas and radio soap operas. His music has been performed across the Americas and Europe by renowned ensembles and soloists like Ensemble Dal Niente, eighth blackbird, Pacifica and Spektral string quartets, Nuntempe Ensamble, Latitude 49, Marco Fusi and Ben Melsky. In addition to composing, he is a Lecturer at Northwestern University and a staff member at Chicago-based Ensemble Dal Niente.
