Rehearsing a piece is always something exciting, but I must admit this week with Musikfabrik I had one of my best rehearsal-experiences of my life! It’s just amazing to work with these incredible musicians with also so a nice work-flow and mood to play new music of students.
I am very looking forward to Adventure #1, the first concert of a collaboration between Institut für neue Musik and Ensemble Musikfabrik in Köln, where my piece “Unterweisung im Singen – Bearbeitung des gleichnamigen Texte von Julio Cortázar” will be performed by Musikfabrik and the Soprano Elena Plaza.
I am almost graduated of my Master in Instrumental Composition in the HfMT-Köln…
…but I’ve been also official accepted to study a second Master in Electronic Music by Michael Beil!
So it’s very nice to know I’ll stay a bit more in this wonderful place full of opportunities 🙂

Excited to take part again in Acht Brücken Festival in Cologne. In this edition I have a premiere of a new piece for trio (Baritone Saxophone, Cello and Percussion) performed in a very special venue: a boat!
I am very thankful to Duoni Liu, curator of the project, to let me take part of such an adventure. My piece “algo sobre el gris” will be performed together with pieces from composers Jonah Haven, Pablo Garretón, Duoni Liu, Sergej Maingardt, Mazyar Kashian, Jakob Lorenz and Hannah Choi. Our great performers are Álvaro Arias (Sax.), Elio Herrera (Vc.) and Ramón Gardena (Perc.). We are all giving a different perspective to the Thema of this year’s festival: the city / Großstadt Polyphonie.

I am very very happy to announce Alba Font Villar and I won the Prize “Beca a la Creació Artística ‘Ciutat de Vic'” with our project “Espai sense títol”.
Vic is the nearest city of my hometown, where I took High School and music studies. There I met Alba, with who I’ve collaborated in some projects like Untitled Shapes. Somehow, in Vic I also discovered I wanted to be a composer; I wrote there my first pieces, which were played by my friends and colleagues from the Music School.
So there are very good news for me to know I will be able to work there again with “Espai sense títol” in 2020. Right now I am willing to take the flight tomorrow and be there, visit kind of fast my family and receive the on Wednesday in Vic’s City hall.
The video recording of “zwei Gießkannen und die weißen Häusern” is now available!

You can now listen to my last String Quartet “algo sobre un cuerpo”, composed and premiered in 2017. It was the first piece that I composed as a student of HfMT-Köln and I am kind of proud of it!
