Hi! I'm Marta, a professional pianist and composer from Barcelona, focused on creating a repertoire with the piano as a main instrument and with a strong interest in composing music for Dance, Film and Art Installations.
With a Classical Music background but a modern view, I try to find new ways of musical expressions, taking music as a way of communication. My main influences are of composers such as Bach, Debussy, Arvo Pärt, Ólafur Arnalds and Max Richter and I think music as textures, colors, atmospheres and sensations.
What excites me the most is being on stage playing for an audience; and the ‘silence’ that is created.
My debut Album EP was launched under Piano and Coffee Records Label and I am currently working with Sonder House NYC Label, as selected artist for the Recollections Vol 1 Album and I about to launch my new single Polissena.
I am currently working on a music and dance piece to be premiere on June 2019 and on the music for a documentary for the Belgian TV.
Thank you for your support.
