Fernando is constantly searching for outlets to expand his artistry and connect with new audiences. “Electronically Augmented Piano” (EAP) is a term he uses to expand the acoustic piano as a live, real-time signal source for effects. This technique showcases the acoustic piano in all of its current glory but also allows for the instrument to grow by utilizing electronic methods not traditionally associated with piano music. Fernando composes, arranges, and performs within different ensemble formats. A graduate of Berklee College of Music, the Banff International Workshop in Jazz and Creative Music, and winner of various awards and honors, Fernando is codifying the use of the EAP within modern music.
