Nacho Goberna
Composer, musician and singer

Small things may be the answer. Sustainable creativity. Fair trade applied to musical distribution.

Nacho Goberna was born in San Sebastian on July 30, 1964. Composer since the age of 17 years, he has lived in first person, over the past three decades, the erratic evolution of the music industry, which has led to the current worrying situation. Music and technology have been his passions, a combination of interests that marks the evolution of his career. A career that has led him to create songs inside one of the reference groups of Spanish pop, “La dama se esconde”, which he was leader, under whose name he released 7 albums, the first two on an independent label and five in a multinational record company. He also developed WWW.GET.ES (“Spanish Groups on the Web) in the mid-late 90’s, the first thematic Internet portal dedicated to the dissemination of Spanish pop music all over the country. It also originated other websites like Heroes del Silencio, Benicassim Festival, Subterfuge, and so on. Later, in 2006, he created his own label, Closer Popnography, which has accommodated quality proposals, far from its more commercial line. Within, and consistent with this path, his last step combines all their creativity and experience, is Unbosquedeteverde.com, which takes its name from her second solo album, “A forest of green tea,” 2010. This is a new way to experience music from a solo proposal, independent from industry and the usual distribution methods. The composer uses the versatile, powerful and affordable tools, offered by Internet and the new technologies to interact with their followers, those who have decided to share a piece of the “refuge”, as he calls it, of that ” Cabin in the Woods “. Unreleased songs, live concert recordings, video clips, writings, photographs … The ideal formula for the different windows open on his sensitivity and to raise a fair cultural exchange model, an original and innovative way of sharing, relating, develop his work without prejudice and outside of the convention. In short, one answer to a stagnant market acostumed to repeating habits.

I have the great fortune to have access to hundreds of families with young children and many adults with small children.

Adults want to change their children, their partners and their environment to feel better about themselves, but they resist or ignore the need to first change their own skin, their look and feel, in order to bring fundamental changes in the heart of humanity and society.

I am a mother. Clinical psychologist and trainer in the field of child health promotion and prevention.

My name is Jose Pedro Garcia and my friends call me Josepe. I exercise as a professor of Industrial Engineering at the Polytechnic University of Valencia where I achieve that they believe that I know something about the interesting subject of Operations Management, particularly in the automotive sector. For many years I was the most important person in my family until my little sister was born, the most visible feature of her was her Down Syndrome. For almost two decades I’ve collaborated with companies and institutions engaged in the employment of people with disabilities to increase their productivity.

Xavier Serrano Hortelano
Clinical psychologist, sexologist and psychotherapist character-analyst


I studied (scholarship) 10 years of my life as child and teen with Jesuits, sharing daily life with fellow inmates, I could “tan” in the field of sexual repression but I also approached the “sexual liberation” because the last years coincided with the transition to democracy in our country. That transition was reflected in a staff of young teachers, “communist”, “cute” that made us read Karl Marx, J.P.Sartre and S. Freud, sharing desks with girls… the experience continued in college, in community experiences with youth of both sexes in the Barrio del Carmen apartments in Valencia, full of “pubs” like “Campsa” where the bodies were caressed without names… and in my travels to Paris and Perpignan to visit its XXX cinemas and neighborhoods. While not everything was “Sex and rock and roll” because I was imprisoned a while, fortunately short, thanks to the general amnesty, in a Valencia jail called “the Model” … there, I met again with texts by Freud and W. Reich, “The sexual revolution” or “sexual struggle of the young” and “Function of the Orgasm” and “Analysis of character.” Perhaps the combination of all this was what defined my future life plans: helping to reduce emotional distress and deepening of human sexuality, bringing me up several years in France and Italy (where I did my own analysis)

And I have been “distracted” in this during my last 30 years. Psychopathological clinical intervention with focal psychotherapy combining them with a depth psychotherapy model (Vegetotherapy character-analytic) which, among other things, facilitates emotional expression and the development of the capacity for pleasure and sexual enjoyment. That and moments of preventive intervention (self-regulation) in families and schools from the womb to adolescence who have allowed me to follow the development and psycho-emotional maturation of children with disparate educational shapes …

I also have experimented all of that with my three children. All of this makes me feel within the paradigm of the “global ecology” along with other colleagues in the training school that I lead (Reichian Therapy Spanish School). I’ve shared the last 11 years of my life with my partner and wife Roxana Gonzalez. I’ve communicated my knowledge, doubts and hesitations through my classes at specializing schools in Europe and Latin America, and also in articles, books and lectures.

The origins of TEDxValencia

Publicado por | Blog, Sin categoría | Sin comentarios


As David Plà tells, in his office at the Campus at Alcoy of the UPV, he organized an event to deliver student certificates of his courses of financial advice. Oriol Amat and Santiago Carbo were responsible for providing a conference and deliver the diplomas to the students in 2006 and 2007. However, despite the quality of the speakers and the interesting topics of popularization, they failed to attract the attention of the general public.

How knew David Plà the existence of the TED platform?

In parallel to those events, and since someone sent him the Conference: Does Schools Kill Creativity? of Sir Ken Robinson, David became an absolute fan of TED. Gradually, he investigated about this association: what did and how it operated. Finally, he learned that there was a program called TEDx, by which any person could perform independent events in his city. Something that, although it wasn’t clear at the time, changed his life (June 2010).

How the TEDxValencia adventure begins?

At that moment, David Plà bought the domain TEDxValencia.com. Soon after, reading the fine print, he knew that buying the domain without getting first the license was something prohibited. Even so, TED did not object to the granting of the license. The project was becoming a reality.

From there, everything went smoothly. He easily convinced his team of partners, Lidia Olmos and Marisa Vercher, which did not hesitate. Later, he contacted several people which he maintained good personal and professional relationships, as Diego Perez of Old Students of UPV, Patricio Montesinos of Postgraduate Education Center of UPV and Purificación Baldovy of AVANT. All of them launched the first TEDxValencia, 2011 edition.

What conclusions were drawn from the first edition?

The experience was a success and it was enough for knowing that both, David and the rest of the team, would continue down the same road, recruiting many more people, raising awareness about the platform and the TED and TEDx formats. So for 2012 they thought about a reframe of the way in which they would organize the event, allowing the entry of any talent that could bring any volunteer. That’s how they entered in Collective Intelligence and Radical Collaboration, hallmarks of the working model that is being developed for TEDxValencia 2012. Are you going to miss it?

Pre-Spreading of TEDxValencia 2012

One of the challenges that arise within the TEDx project is to reach as many people as possible in a simple, clear and entertaining way. Quickly it appeared the idea of using public transport stops as broadcasting points. After analyzing the different options, the Metro Valencia network is the most likely alternative as it offers video and LED displays, which allow self-explanation without relying on staff, or additional systems. Besides it can reach thousands of people on a daily basis.

Thanks to these possibilities, and in addition, we’ll carry out a series of performances at the train stations by the group led by Pau Vercher (Rocambolesc Teatre).

The collaboration that MetroValencia has provided to the TEDxValencia team has served to generate new ideas and improve them, so they will be reflected soon.
