Louis Pino is a fourth-year student at Oberlin Conservatory studying percussion with Michael Rosen and computer music with Aurie Hsu. Pino began his musical career playing drum set and hand drums with several local ensembles. He then moved on to study with Jonathan Haas, Pablo Rieppi and Greg Giannascoli at Juilliard Pre-College, where he received the Commencement Award upon graduation.
Since arriving at Oberlin, Pino has had the opportunity to collaborate with other conservatory students and has come to premiere over 50 new chamber and solo works. He performs with the Oberlin Orchestra, Mozart Project, the Improvisation, and New Music Collective, and Brazilian Drum Ensemble.
Pino also teaches a small studio of students as well as coaches the Northern Ohio Youth Orchestras Percussion Ensemble. As a composer, Pino is interested in writing all electronic and electro-acoustic music for both electronic artists and acoustic musicians.
