The first meeting of the Institut Français – Barcelona Modern Project course just finished. An intense weekend with lots of interesting presentations by guest teacher Hèctor Parra and the participants of the course, workshop with the musicians of Barcelona Modern Project and Joan Martí Frasquier about new instrumental possibilities and also a portrait concert with early Hèctor Parra’s chamber music.

I have been just selected as one of the composition students—with my piece Don’t condescend (Don’t even disagree) (2014), for five players— for the Pierluigi Billone’s masterclasses and workshop during the SIRGA FESTIVAL, that will take place in Flix, Tortosa (Catalonia) early July, 2014.

The New Music Conflagration New Dates.

As I have been told, the concert by TNMC including my piece Jazz, and so, what? Histrionic Jazzy Phantasy (2011), that was first set up on June the 8th, has been postponed until January 2015.

The main causes are that a lot of composers and pieces were selected for the 2013-2014 TNMC New Music Concert Series and it was impossible to program them all.

Looking forward to have news from the guys of TNMC! See you in 2015!
