After a very long process, which started on November 2017, the adventure in Liedberg is now over.
I had the pleasure to compose and premiere a piece in AvantGarten Festival in Liedberg (Germany) the last 9th of September. I decided to do for this really special venue a performatic piece for water cans (that were sometimes not sounding as normal water cans!). It was a really good experience because I feel as a young composition student there are sometimes not a lot of opportunities to show some experimental music outside the normal concert situation. And AvantGarten definitely was one.
As always I want to thank to my performers Ana Belén Ruales, Veronika Paleeva and Pablo Fernández their amazing work and trust in my ideas. And also I must mention Brita Heizman and John, the organisers of the festival, for their absolutely amazing and kind work.
If you are in Germany in September 2019, you must go to Liedberg!
I am very happy to share the live recording of Primera Palabra. About forgiveness after Ashley’s words performed by the members of Ensemble TMC in Segovia, last 9th of March. Thank you very much, Rodrigo, Andrés and Santiago!
You can find it here!
Summer means video editing… and here it is the video recording of “four readers”!
Enjoy the reading and practice some german.
I am very happy to say my String Quartet “algo sobre un cuerpo” was selected as a finalist in Città di Udine Composition Contest.
Really good and motivating news, as my piece is one of the 17 finalists pieces of the amount of 517 applications.
Andrew Fowler wrote some beautiful words about my piece “it’s almost a lullaby”, performed during the workshop in Southampton University “Get Together 2018”.
The music of Helena Cnovas Parés, Colin Frank and Jamie Howell was workshopped on Wednesday. Helena employed Filipa in a theatrical manner to play out a delicately playful night-time ritual which drew attention to beauty of such ordinary actions combined with a twist on the classic expectations of a lullaby.

This week, on the 3rd and 4th, I was participating in Get Together 2018 by the Faculty of Music of Southampton University (UK).
It was a really nice experience and opportunity, to be abroad and hear what are the young composers doing there, and to share our music together. In addition we had a rehearshal-workshop with two fantastic musicians, and I had the pleasure to work my piece “it’s almost a lullaby” with Ana Filipa Botelho.
Now focused in my last weeks in Cologne before the summer holidays…!
The premiere of “four readers” was really amazing and such a great experience for me as composer. I will keep trying always new “crazy” things like this. Here some pictures of the premiere:
I want to thank to my great performers their motivation, you were great Arnau Rovira, Camila Mourkazel-Ortega, Veronika Pau and Ilja Gussarov (:
