The goverment of Bogotá, through the Instituto Distrital de las Artes, invited me to give a series of lectures and talks. Here I present a selection of images from those talks, that happened at the Planetarium, the Fondo de Cultura Económica, the Center for the Graphic Communication, the National Radio and Birgilio Barco Public Library.


For the tenth consecutive year, I had the pleasure of directing in Rio de Janeiro “Zoombido”, a TV program about the creative process of Brazilian and Latin American composers. The show, that involves both interviews and live performances and consists of 26 episodes per season, was shot again in Gilberto Gil’s studio.


Editions Métailié published in January 2015 my novel Scipion translated into French. I was invited in January to give a few talks and interviews in the week of of its presentation. It is the first of my books to be published in French, and I am thrilled and humbled to be counted among the wonderful list of authors published by such prestigious publishing house. Here I enclose a few extracts of the talks conferences in which I took part. You will find a few readable pdf files with the press articles here.
