Seven years later he began the bachelor in Jazz Saxophone and Modern Music at the Conservatori Superior de Música del Liceu. There he receives classes from the most renowned musicians of the Catalan, Spanish and European jazz scene, such as David Mengual, Gorka Benítez, Horacio Fumero, Bill McHenry, Giulia Valle, Víctor de Diego, Gonzalo del Val or Perico Sambeat among many others. He graduates in 2019 as the second classified in the Extraordinary Prize awarded by the conservatory. With David Mengual and Gonzalo del Val, creates his first jazz project: Martí Carrasco Trio. And again with David Mengual, and later with Joan Albert Amargós and Lluís Vergés, insist in composition classes.
In the 20-21 academic year he studied a master’s degree in FilmScoring, in ESMUC, where he attended classes by Albert Guinovart, Arnau Bataller, Vanessa Garde, Alfred Tapscott, Gerard Pastor and Bernat Vivancos, among others. There he had the opportunity to compose and record original music for different musical formations, such as string quartet or symphony orchestra, as well as electronic music or virtual instruments. It is during this course that he composes the soundtrack for the short film “Vuela” by the Valencian director Andrea Mateu.
Currently, Martí Carrasco works as a composer, arranger and saxophonist of very diverse styles, from classical music, soundtracks to jazz or soul.
