CONTEMPORARY MUSIC ENSEMBLE
carrascosa llopis, pablo
Born in Valencia in 1979, his first contact with music was as a bass guitar/singer in a Black/Death Metal band. When he turned twenty, while studying a Master Degree in architecture at Escuela Técnica Superior de Arquitectura de Valencia (ETSAV), he decided to enrole the conservatory and study classical guitar. Having fun composing just by ear, this gradually lead into something more academic so, after finishing architecture and guitar studies, he moved to Barcelona in order to study music composition at Escola Superior de Música de Catalunya (ESMUC), where he graduated with honours. his approach to composition deals with silence, space and musical objects –all of them conceived from an abstract, "architectural" perspective–, but also with possible connections between popular (specially extreme Metal and electronic) and educated music.
Pablo combines contemporary music composition with audiovisual one, working sometimes as a live electronics performer as well. Producer/artistic director in CrossingLines ensemble, he also teaches composition at Taller de Músics Escola Superior d´Estudis Musicals in Barcelona.
