I was born in Gandia -Spain- in 1998.

I moved to Barcelona on 2016 for my bachelor´s degree in cello and

that’s why now I consider it my hometown.

From April 2022 I’m based in Hamburg, Germany.

 

I graduated in Composition and Performance of Contemporary Music (COPECO master) in July 2022 at CNSMD Lyon with Michelle Tadinni, Jean Geoffroy and Greg Beller as main tutors. This Master allowed me to studied in EMTA (Tallinn), KMH (Stockholm) and HFMT (Hamburg) and to connect with different European scenes of experimental art.

 

Currently I’m studying my second Master's degree in Multimedia Komposition with Prof. Konstantina Orlandatou and Alexander Schubert at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater, Hamburg.

 

In my work I explore text as a media and sound control of the space with non-traditional approach, using voice, body and sound as main sources of virtual action and political message.

 

I consider myself a multimedia artist since I work with poetry, virtual environments, sound , lights, improvisation and physical performance in my daily practice. My works and projects had allow me to learn about all this medias in a 360° extension, being flexible and open in the sense of my compositional approach at the same time that having a clear, refresh and consistent aesthetics. Even that, I consider myself architect of sound, being spatial sound my most strong skill.

 

For my performative approach and compositional ideas I been working with DieInstitution.com in season 2022 and being  currently artist collaboration of LiSiLog.com . Also, on 2021 I formed with Carolina Santiago Martínez, Regrat Duo, a multimedia+piano duo which will allow me to participate in important projects in 2023 as the Incubateur de Royamount. 

 

As cellist I work in the Barcelona  Modern Ensemble and play concerts around Europe, mainly doing experimental repertoire and free improvisation.  As sound designer I work in HOOU and in different theatres around Germany as Rampe Theater, St.Pauli Theater or having collaboration with institutions as UDK.
