Jordi Carrasco Hjelm is a Swedish Double Bass player focusing on chamber music and free improvisation. He lives in Amsterdam where he was a Bachelor student in the class of Olivier Thiery and Rick Stotijn at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam where he finished his Masters degree in Cross-Over music making with the jazz violinist Tim Kliphuis.
He performs regularly as a member of the O/Modernt Chamber Orchestra, the Swedish contemporary folk music band Garizim and with the Dutch improvising violist and singer Yanna Pelser. Together with young musicians from all over Europe Jordi is a founding member of the C/o Chamber Orchestra that combines orchestral playing with principles of non-hierarchical collaboration.
In 2019/2020 Jordi looks especially forward to playing Schöenbergs Verklärte Nacht in Kings Place with the O/Modernt Chamber Orchestra, improvising with Gareth Lubbe in the Sylt Chamber Music Festival in Germany and to playing Hindemith duets in the alps with Matthew Hunt.
