Joan Gomez Alemany was born in Spain in 1990. He trained as a pianist and studied visual art at the Valencia Polytechnic University before traveling to Austria to study composition at the Kunstuniversität Graz with Clemens Gadenstätter; he then returned to Spain to continue his composition studies with Oliver Rappoport at the Conservatori Superior de Música del Liceu in Barcelona.
