Active member of the audible experimental Iberian scene, forms part of the art and free action community ALG-A, of the Spontaneous Music Orchestra OMEGA and the pedagogic space EXPLORATORY ORCHESTRA, amongst other. With his personal project MDMME (Mechanical Digital Machine Manufactured for Exploration) he employs all types of recycled artefacts (toys, fans, coins, plastics, tubes) to enjoy the immense audible potential of the piano.
