160 Meters: A Story of Rock in Bizkaia is a transmedia project that tells the social transformation that has taken place on both banks of the estuary of Bilbao during the 1990S, from the perspective of rock music.
The title refers to the distance that separates both banks of the Nervión River, having the Hanging Biscay Bridge as a mute and (in)mobile witness, emphasizing the sociological and economic differences that are materialized, in a context of deindustrialization and construction of the Guggenheim Museum, in two different rock scenes, and even two different ways to approach life. The one on the Left Bank had an edge more punk and social (Eskorbuto, Parabellum, Zarama, etc.), and the one on the Right, with what was referred to as Getxo Sound, a more hedonistic and global character (El Inquilino Comunista, Los Clavos, Lord Sickness, etc.).

He subsequently worked as assistant director at the production company Mecanos Productions on "La Vie Revée des Italiens du Gers" (Jean Pierre Vedel) and "Liquidation Totale" (Hélène Desplanques). In 2008, he directed his first documentary film entitled "Zu zara nagusia - ¡Qué grande eres!" produced by IDEM 4 in association with ETB and Canal Odisea. His highlights as a production director include "Mémoire Cubaine" (Alice de Andrade), selected for the Spanish Film Festival in Malaga (2011), and the short fiction film "Todos los trenes van a París", shortlisted for the Goya awards (2011). He is currently promoting his latest documentary release: "La Otxoa, viviendo sin complejos", and has recently received a scriptwriting grant from the Basque government for the fiction feature film project "Eskorbuto", co-written with Asier Guerricaechebarria.
A critic and music journalist, for almost ten years he has been a regular contributor to frontline publications with a national readership such as Mondo Sonoro, Efe Eme and Ruta 66, as well as to magazines in Euskera (Entzun!), and occasionally writing in El País. For several years he coordinated the e-fanzine electrozine, and was closely involved with other digital magazines such as Ipunkrock, Riff fanzine and Sonic Wave Magazine; he worked as a radio announcer for the music radio station BiFM and was also a member of the writing team that produced the book Kafe eta Galletak.
