Jan grew up studying double bass and piano, having nurtured a deep passion for composition and film music from an early age. He received a degree in Classical and Contemporary Music Performance in the Superior School of Music of Catalonia (ESMUC, Barcelona) and was then admitted to the prestigious Composition for Screen course at the Royal College of Music, London, studying with Joseph Horovitz and Maurizio Malagnini and passing with distinction. Here, he was generously supported by The Major Van Someren Godfrey Memorial Scholarship and was also awarded the Joseph Horovitz Composition Prize.
His personal and versatile approach to music comes from a wide experience in composing for films, commercials, theater and concert music as well as in orchestration, music programming and music performance.
His latest projects include collaborations with the filmmaker Arnau Gòdia, in the award winning films Roger and Psicolapse, and also the co-founding (with fellow composer Christos Kiourtidis) of Rainfall Music Productions, a London-based studio dedicated to the composition and production of music for video games.
