Biography

In his schooldays, at a time when his friends were emulating the medalists of the then ongoing Barcelona Olympic Games, Marc Martinez would instead keep precociously busy with the tricky taming of an Atari 1040ST with a keyboard Casio PT1 connected to large headphones. The attempt did not quite succeed, but the strong-headed 9 year-old little man would all the same spend most of his spare time testing a “playskool” deck. The background music of his teenage remained bands like the Alan Parson Project or Pink Floyd. He advisedly took advantage of a dad working at a disc store.

In 1995, Marc’s parents left his hometown, Barcelona, to settle in Mollerussa and little Marc had to pack and follow. There he studied solfeggio and piano for 7 years at the town school. Creatively restless by nature, he soon grew confident to make his first compositions of classical music. The classically-trained young Marc wouldn’t tour Europe playing Piano as geniuses of the past had done; he instead got his first synthesizer, a Casio HT-6000, and as he turned 15, was given his first personal computer. Marc was now put in command of a full, though made of silicon, philharmonic orchestra and he wouldn’t wait a minute to set off creating his own stuff with programs like Audio Mulch, Cubase and Fruity Loops.

In the year 1998 an epiphany happened: some may have gone to Mecca and saw Light; Marc went to the Sonar Festival (for the oblivious, this was the memorable year of the Brazilian girls).
