ABOUT

I’m a composer with a passion for sharing stories that impact our life through music. I love the journey of sensing moments, visualizing colors and listening to the sounds around me, and then weaving them to form a composition. With an orientation toward making the right connection to a particular story, I look to nature, the people around me and every-day occurrences, as I search for the simple things that change our lives, and put them to music.

One of my latest compositions was played at the Picasso Museum in Barcelona; a piece for guitar duo, inspired by the painting “The Californi.” This work was performed by Marta Crous and Lluís Vila.

I have composed for both large and small jazz ensembles, Orchestral music and chamber pieces for a variety of projects: from soundtracks, to concert stage performance and electronic music.

At 2019 I compose the soundtrack for the short film Rígido by Pablo Mirellas Alvarez & Fernando López Gómez have received a serval prizes from different Film Festivals : Best edit Festival de Cine de Comedia de Tarazona y el Moncayo,

Best short film, best actor & best director Cylnema en corto & special prize from Cerdanya film festival. 

At 2017 I created an audiovisual project called Visible Lines with the main purpose of expose more people to contemporary classical music via performances in alternative stages.

As a child and throughout my early adulthood I surrounded myself with film and local theatre. The combination of imagery and sound provides a mirror through which our experiences are reflected. At age 17, I identified the emotional depth that I kept finding in those artistic moments where motion met music. Thus began my pursuit of a career in film composition. 

I have lived in Barcelona for the past 4 years, as my ancestry is Spanish. Born in Israel in 1990, I studied violin as a child and later moved on to drum set.

I started my academic studies in 2012, studying film composition at Rimon school of Music in Israel. I moved to Barcelona, Spain in 2014 to continue my studies . I graduated from the department of contemporary Music Composition at Liceu Conservatori , Barcelona.
