Hi! I'm Marta, a pianist and composer from Barcelona, passionate about collaborating with other Art Disciplines such as Dance, Film and Sculpture.

With a Classical Music background but a modern view, I try to find new ways of musical expressions, considering music as a way of communication with people. 

I've recently launched my debut EP Light-house under Piano & Coffee Records and I am currently based in Antwerp studying Composition with Wim Henderickx  at Koninklijk Conservatorium.

I am currently working on a piece for violin, accordion and clarinet inspired by the choreography The Flock by Roser López Espinosa and on a Solo Cello Piece dedicated to  the amazing cellist Kian Soltani.

Let's work together


  • Original Music for Dance & Theatre
  • Original Music for Audiovisuals (commercials, promotional videos, documentaries, films)
  • New Music for Ensembles and Soloists
  • Arrangements for different instrumentations 


  • Book a Concert (performing my own music)
  • Live Piano music (events, weddings, exhibition openings)
