I was born in Almansa, Spain, on June 20, 1982. I consider myself a composer, singer and multidisciplinary artist. My expanded musical notations, which I baptized as rare scores, are proposals that go through video, choreography or fine arts, passing through skirt-scores, edible scores, video-scores, tactile scores, graphic scores, cartographies… I show these scores in exhibitions that I call Mono+Graphics. My projects aim at social transformation through playfulness and ritual.
I obtained public recognitions such as the Sonia Megías Classroom (Alicante, 2018), the Sonia Megías Library (Granada, 2022), Ambassador of the Festival ‘Una mirada diferente’ (Centro Dramático Nacional, 2018), or Resident Composer of the Choral Federation of Madrid (2017-2020). Recently, both the National Museum Thyssen-Bornemisza and the Spanish Agency for Cooperation and International Development (AECID) have published documentaries and books about my work with these institutions.
I have also received numerous commissions from Ministry of Culture of Spain and artistic awards and grants such as the Fulbright Grant (New York, 2010-2012), with which I completed a Master’s degree in Music Composition at New York University. In 2011 I created the publishing house EdicionesDelantal and the experimental laboratory CoroDelantal, currently based in Madrid and at the Museum of Contemporary Art of Alicante (MACA).
I currently live in Santa Pola (Alicante), together with the poet Eva Guillamón and our cats Petra and Amaro. From there I write the fanzine LaVidaenMúsica and tour worldwide with our band Dúa de Pel.
