From 1999 on, the Lute Society publishes several of his compositions. In the year 2001 he wins the first prize at the Lute Society's Composition Contest. Between the years 2012 and 2020, the Society publishes four books written by him for the Renaissance lute and a book of songs for lute and voice. The pieces are written in a historical style.

He has also collaborated in the first album of Consort Pere Serra, a recorder flute chamber orchestra in Catalonia. The recording sessions for a second solo album are going to take place in the near future.
