He also put on various miscellaneous theater shows and dances. In the field of scene direction, he directed his operas, as well as those by other composers, for a variety of shows. As music director, he has instructed many chamber groups and the Municipal Band of Barcelona.
His musical portfolio includes stage performances, instrumentals, and works for soloists as well as symphonic groups. Since 2004, he has served as vice president of the Catalan Association of Composers (ACC), and as vice president of the Federation of Associations of Composers Iberian (FAIC) since 2009.
