De La Chica began his music career in the classical tradition, studying piano and synth at the age of six. During high school, finding himself dissatisfied with the conservative musical minds and curious to see the world and other styles, he moved to Europe and lived in Germany, Italy, France and Spain. He studied humanities at a private institution in Salamanca and also briefly studied philosophy and metaphysics in Madrid. In the north of Germany, he spent time in self-guided studies, immersing himself in reading classical literature, composition and the study of dead languages. It was during this period that he composed pieces and essays relating to music, philosophy and spirituality, inspired, specially by Garrigou-Langrange and Teresa de Avila. De La Chica never continued his education formally in a conservatory.
Following his album debut Irreverence (2012), where he explored genres such as hip hop, ambient and electronic, De La Chica released his solo piano album Nocturnal and Circular Images Op. 5 (2015). Among his collaborations are Minimal Aggression (2015) with musicologist and composer Susan Campos - Fonseca (Casa de las Americas Award, 2012), a mutual questioning about minimalism, its possibilities and trajectory in the 21st century; Four short Stories at the Standard hotel Op. 6 (2016) with The Scorchio Quartet and tenor José Heredia; Experimentelle und unbestimmte Lieder Op. 9 (2017), a cycle of German songs for piano, soprano and synthesizer recorded by American soprano Rachel Hippert; Preludes Op. 8 (2018) A cycle for piano and synthesizer recorded by the legendary pianist Lisa Moore. On August 16, 2018, De la Chica released his third solo album Psychosis, an exploration of mind and music, during a live show at the ShapeShifter Lab in Brooklyn, NY. In May 2017, De La Chica won the Best Original Score at the London Independent Film Awards with the film Margaret by Lebanese director Badr Farha.
Currently, De La Chica is composing his first opera El castigo de Dios, based on his Story El Castigo de Dios, about leprosy in Colombia in the 19th century and how influential it was in the political situation of the country during the sale of Panama.
Since November 2009, Mr. De La Chica has been part of the Baldwin pianos Co. and currently he plays the custom designed Baldwin: Heavy Metal piano. He is a founding member of Irreverence Group Music (IGM) record label and lives in Brooklyn, NY.
