Ana Luisa Diaz de Cossio is a performer-composer whose work traverses the space between social structures, individuality, spontaneity, and explores resonance in physical as well as cultural space. Through extreme extended techniques, Ana challenges conventional violin playing, exploring the possibilities and limits of sounds within the instrument. Her music is informed by political, social, and cultural awareness of the systems constituting our societies.
Ana has participated in Manifesté-IRCAM (FR), Darmstadt Summer Course (DE), Ensemble Evolution (USA), Karp Kamina Residency (Togo), ANMA+NordPlus Music Forum (EE), Dark Music Days (IS), Time for Music (FI), ActinArt (DK) among others. Ana holds degrees from Universidad Autónoma de Baja California, Boston Conservatory at Berklee, and Listaháskoli Íslands.
