Pianist I Composer



Music from a house-boat in Sausalito.


Light-house is the debut EP by Barcelona-based pianist and composer Marta Cascales Alimbau. She found the inspiration to release this EP in Sausalito (California), onboard of the old houseboat Vallejo during her stay at Varda Artists Residency. In those picturesque surroundings, she composed the piano piece Tide-Lighthouse, and decided to go back to her recent pieces and bring them to light under the title Light-house. The result is six pieces for piano, violin and cello, where you can hear the influences of composers such as Bach, Debussy and Arvo Pärt, as well as all the imaginary around the ocean, the fog and the tide from Sausalito.

Reviews of Light-house

  • Doug Thomas Writings. "Light-house certainly bears a sense of gentleness and elegance".

  • Piano & Coffee Blog. "The warmth of the tender piano is like two hands holding mine, reassuring me that things will work out."

  • Sonorospace. "Therefore are pieces like "Pleut“, "Tide“ and "Bachiana“ with an intense symbiosis between Marta’s virtuoso piano patches and impulsive violin interplays."
