Poma is a project born from the idea of using free improvisa- tion within a composed context. Thus, the musicians immerse themselves in improvisation which occurs within pre-established structures, or along previously defined musical pathways, or even together with previously composed music; the essential principle being to set as few restrictions as possible on the performers.
Paco Jordi was born in Girona, Spain in 1981. He is a composer and guitarist. He has played guitar with some pop rock bands like Brazzaville (with David Brown- Beck’s ex-sax player), Holland Park (a local band with 2 album releases) amongst others.
He studied guitar and trombone at the Barcelona Conservatory and composition with the renowned Catalan composer Albert Llanas.
He has composed for string orchestra, solo instruments and chamber music. His “Piece for 12 strings” was one of the three works selected in the composition contest “Sincronic” organised by Phonos Foundation.
Together with different musicians he works on improvisation in an experimental music project called Poma.
