Pedro Gómez was born in Calasparra (Murcia, Spain) in 1982. He has studied Composition at Real Conservatorio Superior de Música de Madrid with professor Teresa Catalán, and Telecommunications Engineer at Universidad Politécnica de Valencia.
He has also received lessons from Alberto Posadas, Benet Casablancas, Georg Friedrich Haas, Ramón Lazkano, Raphaël Cendo, Hèctor Parra, Agustí Charles, Zygmunt Krauze and Alessandro Solbiati, among others. In 1999, he was awarded with the 1st prize in “I Young Pianist Contests“ at Conservatorio Profesional de Música de Murcia, and, in 2012, his piano work Ítaca was awarded with the 2nd prize at “I FIDAH Contest for Young Composers”.
The music of Pedro Gómez has been premiered in Madrid, Valencia, Pamplona, Radziejowice (Poland), London and New York, where avant-garde flutist Julián Elvira premiered the piece End of the Certainties, for Pronomos Flute and electronics.
Between 2019 and 2021, he has been teaching Analysis, Harmony and Counterpoint in Máster Universitario de Dirección de Orquesta at Universidad Alfonso X “El Sabio” in Madrid. Since 2021 he is professor of Composition Foundations, currently teaching Harmony at Real Conservatorio Superior de Música de Madrid.
Due to his duality as composer and engineer, his current creative work is focused on the use of physics and mathematics models to articulate new musical structures and obtain new ways to transform the sound material. In this sense, he took a Master Degree on New Technologies for the Recent Music at Real Conservatorio Superior de Música de Madrid, doing the Master Research in the translation of different concepts (entropy, gravity, quantum mechanics) to the sound by means of self-produced resources and procedures. Some pieces, as Time Asymmetry of Entropy, for string quartet, or Más allá del fin del tiempo, for wind ensemble, are the result of this continuous working process.
This combination of music and science has also resulted in several invitations to give lectures at Royal College of Music in London, Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, and Universidad de Navarra and Musikene, both of them as part of a conferences cycle called “Las artes suenan” organized by Jakiunde.
His interest in looking for new ways to present the music of our time leads him to be a founder member of M14 Creación Contemporanea, a group of composers aimed at developing new strategies to carry the new creation music towards new spaces and new audiences.
As a musician, since 1993 he is member of Asociación Banda de Música de Calasparra, and he has also being involved in Banda de Música de la Universidad Politécnica de Valencia, Banda de Música de la Federación de Bandas de Música de la Región de Murcia and Orchestra of the Universitat Rovira i Virgili in Tarragona.
