Martin Herraiz never had a composition lesson. He won the Funarte Classical Composition Prize (Brazil, 2012) and the meLAB prize (2015) and was a finalist at the two Nieuw Ensemble/BAMdialogue Brazilian Composers’ Competitions (Holland, 2009 and 2011) and at the Ossia New Music Composition Prize (USA, 2016), among others. His works have been performed in several Brazilian cities, as well as in the United States, England, Holland, Austria, Sweden, Germany, Spain, Argentina, and Panama. He has worked closely with ensembles and performers such as Nieuw Ensemble (Holland), Ensemble Reconsil (Austria), Vertixe Sonora (Spain), Elissa Cassini (France/USA), Camerata Aberta, PIAP, Claudio Cruz (Brazil), among others. He co-organized in 2007 the 5th National Composers Meeting (ENCUn), which took place in São Paulo over a week of concerts (including dozens of premieres), workshops and roundtables, among other activities. In 2008 he co-produced the CD Ressonâncias (LAMI 007) featuring works by 10 living brazilian composers, including his own “misantrópicos I”. In 2010 he organized, in connection with the International Computer Music Conference (ICMC) in New York, the first Brazilian performance of the 60x60 festival, featuring his acousmatic miniature “migraine impromptu”. In 2014, with support from the Ibermúsicas program, he made an artistic residency in Vienna, Austria, where his work “don’t look now” was premiered by the Ensemble Reconsil. 2015 saw the release of the 14-CD box set Ensemble Reconsil Exploring the World (Orlando Records, Austria, or-0014), featuring “cubist dances”, and of the Boulez+ DVD (Selo SESC, Brazil, DVDSS 0024/15), featuring “relato de insônia”. In 2018 he was selected out of 985 applicants by KulturKontakt Austria to spend another three months in residency in Vienna writing a new piece for a local ensemble. He holds a Bachelor's Degree in Graphic Design and a Masters in Musicology at the São Paulo State University (UNESP) with a dissertation on Frank Zappa's orchestral music.
