Born in Puerto Rico, Luis Quintana is an internationally prized composer who develops his work in France and abroad in the field of contemporary classical music, extending the frontiers of his musical universe from concert music to acousmatic pieces and sound installations.  

Often inspired by nature and various forms of traditional and popular music, particularly Caribbean soundscapes, he confronts the conventional and the modern — recontextualizing these elements and experimenting with suggested, effaced, and disseminated imagery.

After completing his composition studies at the Paris National Conservatory (CNSMDP) and the Ircam Cursus, he has been engaged in a wide array of projects internationally, earning various awards along the way, including the Composition Prize from the Académie des Beaux-arts in France (Prix Pierre Cardin 2022) and the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation fellowship in 2024.
