The clarinettist Santi Mabad concentrates his performing activity mainly in the field of contemporary and XX century music in diverse chamber music instrument forms, as well as solo and accompanied by electronic performances, where a fundamental part of his style of musical expression lies. For this reason, he is in the habit of collaborating with several contemporary composers, having premiered works by Diana Pérez Custodio, Bragado, David Vendrell, Víctor Vallés, Lula Romero, José Antonio Ariza, Roberto Pineda, Sergio Fidemraizer, Ortiz Morales, Alberto C. Bernal or Sergio Blardony, amongst others. His versatility has led him to explore a variety of instruments within the clarinet family, for example the soprano, bass and contrabass. With each of these he transmits to the audience a fundamental part of his artistic language. Currently Santi Mabad is a member of the small group of clarinet players who are leading an evolution in the contrabass clarinet, exploring its sound and extended techniques and, in collaboration with many current composers, extending the repertoire of this instrument, somewhat unknown to the general public, but fundamental in so many aspects of contemporary music.
