Bastidas works with dedication, consistency and determination in order to develop his personality and his own musical universe. His compositions show a serious intellectual curiosity, a great musical sensitivity and notable technical expertise coupled with a very rich and vivid sound imagination deeply involved in structural and architectural topics.

Tuve oportunidad de escuchar su obra B3:Sketches escrita para el Trío Brouwer, la cual me impresionó por sus cualidades técnicas, creativas ideas y solidez formal.(...) aprecio mucho su talento, carácter y humildad.

Bastidas is an outstanding composer. His music is very adventurous, imaginative, and it is done with extreme thoughtfulness. I found the inventive details in his scores to be extraordinary and exciting.
