Oscar Larios Perea was born in Barcelona in 1969. He showed an early aptitude for piano and a good musical ear which led him to discover music in an autodidactic way. This early self-learning stage influenced and accompanied him throughout his training. At the age of nine he began his musical studies at the Institut Joan LLongueres, and soon afterwards continued at the Orfeó Gracienc. He followed his studies at the Conservatori Municipal de Música de Barcelona and he completed them at the Conservatori del Liceu. His father, a jazz lover, introduced him to the harmonic richness of this genre and his mother, originally from Córdoba, to flamenco with all its rhythmic amalgam. For these reasons he decided to extend his musical studies at the Aula de Música Moderna i Jazz de Barcelona.
Currently he is the Head of music theory at the Aula de Música 7, where he has been teaching music theory, harmony and piano since 1995, together with conducting the school´s orchestral ensembles.
A great deal of his work is addressed to children and young adults and is the fruit of these teaching activities, with works adapted to the different technical levels and preferences of his students. His catalog comprises works for orchestral ensemble, such as La Rosa dels Vents (The Rose of the Winds) and Suite Alexandra, commissioned by Camerata XXI foundation for the child and youth music camps. It also consists of chamber works for different levels and groups of instruments, progressive studies with swing for piano and Cançó de Nadal, cantata for children choir based on the popular A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens.
At present he combines his teaching activity with musical production as a composer and arranger for theatre, cinema animation, audiovisual and advertising. As an arranger he worked on the production of the collection of CD’s Supermúsics, edited by the Club Súper 3. In 2006, his children´s musical La Magia dels Ki-kids was premiered in the Theatre Condal of Barcelona to great public and critical acclaim.
