In these dark and troubled times, especially as far as culture is concerned, we welcome initiatives and projects that, besides being interesting, take care of little details. Luckily this crisis that we have been suffering for years hasn’t brought only misery, but also a host of good ideas born out of necessity. It was necessary to rake our brains to find other formulas to see the light at the end of the tunnel. But, above all, we realized the modus operandi we had been following wasn’t yielding good results. In this sense Milivingroom did a good job by fusing music and the audiovisual world and changing the usual stage to prevent live music from dying slowly.

Milivingroom is a unique project that is already common in the US and in the rest of Europe consisting in organizing concerts in unusual spaces, thus helping to spread music and creating synergies between artists and the audience. What is more, those live performances are recorded so that you can watch them as many times as you want onwww.Milivingroom.com.

Based in Granada, in 2009, Raul Molino and Fernando Cienfuegos joined forces to open the Milivingroom Cultural Association to develop this great project, joined by Adrian Nieto a few months ago to direct it. As we have said, it is based on a web platform for the promotion and dissemination of music through audiovisual works. And to generate all that stuff they organize concerts in intimate spaces like your living room? In this way, they managed to find a new space for more playful and experimental music projects that resulted in a new art scene in the Andalucía’s music-loving city par excellence, in private homes or in spaces not designed for this type of activity.

We love the idea, not only for what it implies as far as ways to listen to music and music formats goes, but also because it is an open project in which anyone can participate, either as a musician, in a technical team, as audience, as a sponsor or as a partner. Although it is in Granada –a city with a great musical tradition- were most events take place, it also reaches cities like Seville, Madrid and Barcelona, ​​which have already witnessed their good work of Milivingroom’s promoters and organizers.
