Jorge Martín, Composer


Hello, and thanks for stopping by my website! For those of you who don’t know, I’m a composer who’s been at it since the 90s as a free-lancer. I got my MA and DMA from Columbia and I’m glad to say that’s long since past. I write in any genre and have written in most, but vocal music is my favorite, and yes, I am one of those forlorn souls smitten by opera, the worst bitch goddess of all. But one at whose feet I gladly worship. I was born in Cuba but grew up in New Jersey from age 6. This simple fact has created all sorts of identity issues, not irrelevant to me as an artist. I live in Vermont, which is my home state, but also have a base in NYC, which I consider my home city. The fact I profoundly enjoy both deepest countryside and the citiest city on earth probably also says something about me. You will not be surprised to learn I also have family in Miami.
