The Brooklyn Music Scene is my current Documentary Feature as a producer and director.

I have always been curious to investigate and create a documentary about the Indie music production in New York City, specially in the Lower East Side, which was for a long time a tremendous location for independent music production.

But today, the Brooklyn music scene is also getting world widely known with record labels such as DFA, Captured Tracks and Partisan Records. This tendency is constantly growing with music venues opening all over Williamsburg, Greenpoint and Bushwick and musicians from all over the world gathering there in search of gigs and fame.

What are the secrets of the Brooklyn music scene success? Is this movement genuine or rather the product of the Brooklyn ‘hipster’ tendency? How is it changing neighborhoods and how does it affect its communities?

The Brooklyn Music Scene documentary aims to answer these questions by following independent record labels, emerging artists and bands, and by visiting the best music venues and record stores in Brooklyn.

You can follow The Brooklyn Music Scene’s work in progress on Vimeo and Facebook.

The Jump! WTF Experience

Documentary Feature about the past and present of the underground jazz musicians in Barcelona.

The Jump! WTF Experience is a documentary released at Festival de Cannes 2016 and Directed by Carme Puche, which depicts the blossoming of more than a hundred young musicians in Barcelona. Breathtakingly talented but under the radar, they are struggling now as others have struggled in the past.

The Jump! is an observational documentary about a group of talented young musicians during what has been called ‘the abysmal year’ of Spain. But it is also a call to look to the past, to truly understand where we come from, despite not quite knowing how to navigate our path into the future.

Pi(e) day at the Brooklyn Public Library

Promotional spot for the Four & Twenty Blackbirds opening ceremony on Pi(e) Day at the Central Brooklyn Public Library.

The opening of a new coffee shop by Four & Twenty Blackbirds at the Grand Central Brooklyn Public Library on Pi Day is another sign of the effort of the Brooklyn Public Library system to transform its branches to more than simple studies or work areas.

The spot “Pi(e) day at the Library” celebrates the Brooklyn Public Library and the Four & Twenty Blackbirds’ initiative of bringing together culture and gastronomy. It helps to promote the idea of libraries as places where creativity, inspiration and collaboration are thriving among the community.
