Chilean-Spanish composer, music teacher and author, known for his harmony treatise and various pedagogical texts, used in Spain and Latinamerican countries.

Zamacois, being of Spanish descent, moved to Barcelona with his family. He began his musical career under the tutelage of his father, studying later at Conservatori Superior de Música del Liceu and at Escuela Municipal de Música of the same city. Then, he dedicated himself to composition. In 1914, he was named Professor at Liceu, and in 1940 at Escuela Municipal de Música, where he was the director in 1945, transforming it into a Conservatory.

Zamacois died on 8 September 1976 in Barcelona, aged 81.
