Carmen Torrano Mellado
Carmen started her musical journey in Murcia (Spain) studying clarinet and double bass at the Professional Conservatory. She continued with her double bass studies in Rotterdam (Holland). Following this, she graduated with both her Bachelors and Masters at Sibelius Academy in Helsinki (Finland).
Carmen is presently working as a double bass player at Georgian National Philharmonic Orchestra. Before this, she was working in other formations like the Georgian Sinfonietta as a principal double bass, Turku Philharmonic Orchestra (Finland) or La Lyra Hispana (a small ensemble specialized in period music in Spain).
Her love for chamber music has made her go to Sweden several times to participate in the Aurora Chamber Music Festival. Due to the current sanitary crisis, she started searching for different ways of expression, using her knowledge as a musician to combine traditional musical elements (played on double bass) with music software.
