Percussion and electronics
Alabastre (Alabaster) is a 58-minute-long work for one percussionist and electronics. This project was born out of the enthusiasm of the percussionist Noè Rodrigo Gisbert. The ductility of this material allows to achieve high precision microtonal tuning. The crystal clear timbre is enhanced by the impressive resonance, rare in a lithophone instrument.
At this time, you can watch a documentary about the process of designing and building the instrument on YouTube. You can also listen to the first movement of the cycle in a video performed by percussionist Noè Rodrigo Gisbert: Alabastre. This work is structured in 7 movements for percussion and electronics, and 8 electronic interludes that make up a 58 minutes long work.

Vers l'infinit (3rd string quartet)
Amplified string quartet and crystal singing bowls | 55'
I am really excited about some features of this new work, where I investigate on just intonation in a very new and radical approach (at least for me!). The premiere of the work will take place in Barcelona in the 2024-2025 season. Stay tuned! In the meanwhile, you can watch and listen my first string quartet “Fràgil” by the incredible Armida Quartett on YouTube. My second string quartet will be recorded soon by the amazing Quartet Gerhard. Check out this stunning trailer. The score of the string quartets are available at Universal Edition.
Violin and piano
This summer I took a two-week desert cave retreat, and the endless blue sky around me provided the inspiration for a new work for violin and piano for the amazing Joel Bardolet (violin) and Marc Heredia (piano), members of Trio Fortuny. I am currently working on it to be able to premiere it next season.
On hi ha Silenci
Overtone singing choir
Inspired by the ancient Zen sutra “Shodoka” (8th century), I explore natural overtones in conjunction with diphonic singing, khoomei singing and other vocal techniques, to achieve an inner landscape close to silence, full of deep peace. I am writing this work in colaboration with the enthusiastic MuOM Barcelona Overtone Singing Choir.
