I have been interviewed by Marie-Therese Rudolph for the program Zeit-Ton of Ö1 ORF, as one of the finalists of the competition Ö1 Talentebörse earlier this year. Check it out here:
Really excited to share this very cool production that I have been working on with Manuel Alcaraz Clemente!
Hope you enjoy it!

My new piece [to be enveloped by] BLACK (2018-19), written for Ensemble Multilatérale and inspired by the poetic and visual works of Aldo tambellini, will be broadcasted during this week’s Création Mondiale program in Radio France, with Anne Montaron, Françoise Cordey and Soizic Noël.
This piece was specifically written for the ensemble and recorded at the Studios at la Seine Musicale for its broadcast in Radio France. It is a cycle of 5 miniatures of 2′ that will be broadcasted every day this week at 13.55h. The titles of each miniature are the following:
- to BLⒶCK from BLⒶCK (2′)
- BLⒶCK energy burns with fire (2′)
- the coming to be, resonating in the echo (2′)
- from the invisible made visible (2′)
- perforated on a BLⒶCK slate sky (2′)
You can listen to it live by clicking here.
On Saturday, June the 1st, you will also be able to listen to the complete cycle and to an interview by Anne Montaron at 23.30h. You can listen live by clicking here. There will also be iTunes Podcast and RSS Feed available.
Thanks sincerely to the team at Radio France, to the Ensemble Multilatérale, Léo Warinsky, Yann Robin and all the others that made this project happen.
My piece Impact / Tremors / Shifting (2017-18), written for l’Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France, was premiered at Centquatre Paris during the final concert of the Orchestral Reading Workshop of Ircam’s ManiFeste 2018, under the baton of Peter Rundel.
Now you can listen to it, alongside music by David Clay Mettens, Sina Fallahzadeh, LangQing Ding, Utku Asuroglu, Clara Olivares, Jinwook Jung, Cameron Graham and Karlheinz Stockhausen (Dritte Region von Hymnen) in the website of Radio France:
Here you can find all the information regarding the premiere of my new piece …in jeder hinsicht indirekt… (2017/18), for Baritone Sax, Percussion, Piano, Double Bass and Live electronics; a comission by Impuls, part of the Text im Klang Projekt.
The program also includes music by Jinwook Jun, Anna Korsun, Francisco José Domínguez Robles and Elena Rykova. There will also be an open brunch where we’ll discuss our pieces, taking place the morning after the concert.

Hugo Warinsky interviewed yours truly at the end of Université D’Altitude International Workshop for Young Composers (Saint-Martin-Vèsubie, France, 2016), so here you can listen to me [trying to] explain the musical ideas behind my Vértigo (2016), which was wonderfully premiered back there by the amazing Ensemble Multilatérale.
Hope you enjoy or, at least, have fun!
I got one of my piece broadcasted on Radio France last June the 27th. It is the brilliant performance of my Only then I felt the Ice (2015), by the Ensemble Multilatérale.

Le magazine de la contemporaine – 27.06.2016
There you go with two reviews of the concert by Ensemble neoN —last Tuesday, April the 12th, at Scandinavia House, NYC—, the opening night for MATA Festival 2016. They played music by Alexander Kaiser, Seán Clancy, Jan Martin Smørdal, Matthew Welch, Neil Luck and my Don’t Condescend [Don’t Even Disagree] (2014), for quintet.
The first one is by The New York Times’ critic Anthony Tommasini, the second is by New York Classical Review’s George Grella.
“…The young Spanish composer Diego Jiménez Tamame packs a lot of dense, restless music into his five-minute “Don’t Condescend [Don’t Even Disagree].” It unfolds with violent shifts and gnashing chords as motifs and cells of pitches interact and recombine…“
“…Don’t condescend sounds like a dense burst of white noise, disassembled, with the parts all heading back to coalesce at a central point. The well-executed writing is full of power and gnarled timbres…”
So! The New Yorker just announced the first concert of MATA Festival 2016, where Ensemble neoN will perform my quintet Don’t condescend [Don’t even disagree] (2014), along music by Alexander Kaiser, Matthew Welch, Seán Clancy, Neil Luck and Jan Martin Smørdal.
Here’s the link. Check it out and get your tickets soon, if you haven’t already!
