I am a composer and a social entrepreneur.
As a composer I am enthusiastic, energetic and deeply synaesthesic. My work is focused on exploration of sound observed from different points of view. Timbre and silence are elementary parameters in my music. I enjoy working with extra-musical ideas based on poetic concepts, shapes, colours and nature phenomena, especially the light.
I especially value is the live experience of my music. So I don’t write traditional music compositions anymore. I compose experiences, I invite my audience to experiment, to let themselves go and to feel.
I was born in Cáceres, Spain in 1985. In 2010 I finished my degree in composition at the Higher School of Music of the Basque Country “Musikene” in San Sebastián, where I had the opportunity of studying with Gabriel Erkoreka, Stefano Scarani and Christophe Havel. In 2012 I completed a Guildhall Artist Master at Guildhall School of Music and Drama of London, with Paul Newland as my tutor.
