Tomás I. Gueglio Saccone is an Argentine composer currently based in Chicago. His surreal and evocative works include chamber, orchestral, and electronic music, as well as pieces for actors based on speech and collaborative work with dancers.
He holds a doctorate from the University of Chicago, a MMus from Syracuse University, and a BMus from the Universidad Católica Argentina. Born in Buenos Aires, a major influence in his musical upbringing was Gerardo Gandini whose workshop he attended between 2003 and 2007.
Gray Center Fellow Claudia Lavista, Staging the Invisible (with Shulamit Ran and Augusta Read Thomas), joins fellowship collaborator Tomás Gueglio for the world premiere of Proa ("Prow") for four dancers and harp, at the Steppenwolf Theatre.
