In 2016 I started the project OUT·SIDE, a concert series of unusual music in several Catalan art centres. The series has shown an exponential growth of artistic proposals and institutional support for each edition. The conception of OUT·SIDE can be summarised in three points:
Despite their clear stylistic variety, the common denominator of all OUT·SIDE projects is that they seek to move away from the “normality” of the usual musical proposals.
OUT·SIDE is presented in art centres, which means that the space, the acoustics, the relationship with the audience and the concert format are different from a situation in a concert hall. The programming of the series aims to take advantage of these particularities and propose specific situations to the public.
OUT·SIDE wants to be an active agent in the consolidation of proper artistic and working conditions to strengthen the new music scene. We choose to dignify the work of experimental musicians within the possibilities that the context allows us.
After OUT·SIDE I created “OUT·”, an enterprise devoted to the management and curation of several cultural activities.
