My artistic orientation goes in a myriad of research directions, including technical musical aspects though history and around the world, aspects of metacomposition, the role of new arts in current society issues and hard to grasp reflections on symbolics and subconscious activity. There are many other interests I can’t (or I decide not to) talk about, and that idea of secrecy is by itself a highly interesting one for me.

As a composer, I find myself often in the double task of exploring deeper into my already established interests and procedures while at the same time exploring beyond the limits of what I know. Two fundamental aspects of study have stayed with me all along since the very beginning: pitch organization and the orientation of the musical perception through different proportional segmentations of time.

I obtained my Masters in Composition at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam, working with Richard Ayres and Wim Henderickx as main teachers. Previous academic teaching (MMus in Composition, Bachelor in Music Education) brought me to Seville and Estonia, learning from composers such as Servando Valero, Antonio J. Flores or Toivo Tulev.

I had the opportunity to learn from many other teachers in seminars, masterclasses, courses and provate lessons. Among them, Hèctor Parra, Carola Bauckholt, Georg Friedrich Haas, Toshio Hosokawa, Dmitri Kourliandski, David del Puerto, etc…

I’ve been lucky to have commited performers caring for and performing my music in Spain, The Netherlands, Estonia, Belgium, Singapore and Taiwan. Future projects to be premiered in Japan, United States and Germany. I’ve worked with the Nieuw Ensemble, Atlas Ensemble, Orkest de Ereprijs, Zahir Ensemble, Versión Vocal, Manufaktur für Aktuelle Musik and Looptail among other ensembles, and collaborated with artists as the set designer Martina Bauer, the dancer and choreographer Eduardo Rojas or the graphic artist Kry García.

I’ve been since 2008 continuously engaged in musical education and promotion, organizing and crowdfunding musical initiatives such as the “Noches de Repálago” concert series in Seville, the MASC collective or the sound-light-space experience “Baptista, vel Solis Cedens”.

I am happy to be granted as 2016 supported artist by the Young Artfund Amsterdam (YAA).

M
i orientación artística se dispersa en una miríada de direcciones de investigación, incluyendo aspectos técnicos musicales, aspectos de meta-composición, el posible rol del arte nuevo en las actuales problemáticas sociales, y reflexiones difíciles de abarcar en torno a aspectos simbólicos y subconscientes. Hay otros intereses de los que no puedo (o decido no) hablar, y la idea de “secreto” en sí misma me interesa muchísimo.

Obtuve mi Máster en composición en el Conservatorium van Amsterdam, con Richard Ayres y Wim Henderickx como principales profesores. Mi educación previa tuvo lugar en Cádiz, Sevilla y Estonia, aprendiendo de, entre otros, Servando Valero, Antonio J. Flores o Toivo Tulev.

A través de clases individuales, cursos, seminarios y talleres, aprendí también de David del Puerto, Hèctor Parra, Carola Bauckholt, Georg Friedrich Haas, Toshio Hosokawa, Dmitri Kourliandski, Chaya Czernowin, o Jesús Torres, entre otros.

Mi música ha sonado de la mano de diferentes grupos y solistas: entre ellos están el Nieuw Ensemble, Atlas Ensemble, Zahir Ensemble, Manufaktur für Aktuelle Musik, Orkest de Ereprijs, Saudade trío o Ander Erburu, así como colaboraciones con artistas de diversas disciplinas como la la escenógrafa Martina Bauer, el coreógrafo Eduardo Rojas o la artista gráfica Kry García.

En enero de 2016 fui premiado como compositor del año por la Young Artfund Amsterdam.
