Martín Matilla on SoundBetter

Canvas Portfolio

I'm a VJ, audiovisual artist and designer. My artwork has evolved around the creation of loops and the animation of photographs, basing my main exploration on the surreal landscapes, collage and organic textures. I'm also a musician, producer and a tireless researcher in love with the process of imagining what is about to take place.

I understand that the canvas is a framework in itself and I work according to the fact that the piece reaches its maximum potential, resignifying or promoting the message of the musical piece, putting the visual at the service of the music. As a VJ and a Live performer I learned to synchronize music and image with enough impact; my work is based on finding an appropriate concept that summarizes the spirit of a song (or an album) keeping in mind that rhythm and energy are as important as colors, shapes and movement. I like to find the exact point where the visual and the music coincide as pieces that seem to have been created together, even if they are self-sustaining arworks that were built independently.

We can start working from a cover (or any other pre-existing image) or create an ideal visual concept for your track from scratch. I can suggest starting points or we can explore together until we find the perfect raw material. If you prefer, I will keep you up to date on the evolution of the project to ensure that we are moving on the right path.

I can also work in video editing, 3D animation, live visuals design, mapping, live set design with Ableton and Resolume and audio post production.

Contact me using the button above and tell me about your project, I am interested in hearing from you and I will be happy to answer any questions. Let's do some magic together!

    This is another project with Martin. Once again I am overwhelmed, these ideas he embeds in my covers. The more I look the more details I discover. Let Martin work without guidelines, he lets himself be inspired by the music. It's exciting to discover his work every time. Martin thank you

    Martin is a wonderful collaborator. He is super responsive and a great communicator, you can tell he is passionate about what he does. I'm really happy with the video edit he created for me and it was such a pleasure working with him. I would 100% recommend working with Martin and looking forward to working with him again!

    Martin dropped in on very short notice and got straight to work to deliver a wonderful canvas and some extra promotional goodies. I had a few themes for the design but no preconceived design ideas and I decided to leave these completely up to Martin's creativity. He didn't disappoint and captured the joy and positivity essence of the song immediately. He gave me a few options which are always nice but I went with his primary design as it was right on point. The results were wonderful!

    Martin created a second project for me, a cover, a canvas for Spotify and an animation for my song. He only received the music, no other information. Give him time and his imagination has no limits. He created an incredible piece of work. The collaboration with Martin is unique, he communicates very clearly. To get the best result, I can only recommend Martin! I look forward to working with him again!
    Thanks Martin, see you soon Toussaint

    Listen: I don't say this lightly --- RUN --- don't walk, to hire Martín. I've had a lot of experience with hiring people for visual jobs who phone things in and don't pay attention to the music or the prompt of the task and Martín is the opposite. His attention to detail is incredibly impressive and makes you feel like you're an important artist on a major labor the way he takes care of your art by being meticulous with his art. He is a great communicator and his professionalism is umatched.

    I have worked with Martin to design Canvases for our songs on Spotify. He always works to understand exactly how we want the visual to complement the song and he always provides several alternate ideas to choose from. He is a true artist and a pleasure to work with.

    After Martín did such a great job with my first video, I used him again for my second one. Martín was able to create the perfect video in only one draft..no revisions needed at all. Martín also provided detailed explanations to my questions regarding file format and sound quality...rest assured he will always make your audio sound optimal. I highly recommend Martín.

He works fast while being both technical and thorough. Delighted with the end result and will surely be back for more in future!

    I'm glad to have connected with Martín to create my Spotify Canvas. I couldn't imagine a better experience for this project. Martín took my instructions and added his own creative input where necessary to create a truly unique video. He was patient and effective at implementing my feedback too. Communication was prompt and thorough. Probably my favorite aspect of working with Martín was his attention to detail. For example, he was very meticulous with the file delivery. Thank you!

    Martin did a high quality job for me. He put all his skills into my project. I was looking for an artist who could make something special out of my music by creating an extraordinary art cover and animation. This turned out very well. He only got the music and a small translation of the text. He had a free hand and created something very special. Thanks Martin also for the nice correspondence. Another project is planned for next year. I can only recommend Marin.

    It has been an incredible journey to be able to work with Martin. Someone who you have never met in person yet makes you feel like you have known each for a lifetime. Martin made it easy for me. I never had to worry. He understood me and made any idea I had better. I am so happy with how everything turned out. I would recommend that whoever has a chance to co-create with Martin that they should take the opportunity. He will certainly make sure everything runs smoothly. Guarantee!

    We did a canvas project and Martín put crazy effort in this. He came up with lots of ideas and created a fantastic scenery with more than I could have asked for. Finally we even did a YouTube-Version and more. He´s definitely enjoying what he does! It´s a pleasure to work with him and I´ll come back soon. Thanks, Martín.

    Martin quite simply exceeded my expectations and delivered a compelling visual canvas full of life and color. Martin takes great pride in his work and loves to delight his customers. This makes him a pleasure to work with. Martin incorporated some initial ideas I had for the Canvas but I gave him creative license to go beyond that and he didn't disappoint! I would gladly work with him again as he provides astounding value for his services.

    Martin is an Incredible, exceptional and unique designer. I'm grateful that he added so much life into the cover art of a song I released. Not only is he a complete artist, he listened to my song to find the right pace of motions and graphics to go with the Spotify Canvas. I am so lucky to have Martin design the visuals for me and highly recommend you if you're looking for someone who can take the listener into another world with his inspiring art <3

    Martín is great—he made a looping animation to accompany my song, and he brought a lot of enthusiasm, positive energy, and ideas. I felt he was as excited about the project as I was. The animation is awesome and his communication was quick and detailed! I definitely recommend!

    I have worked with Martín several times and he has always exceeded my expectations. He is enormously creative, professional and at the same time receptive to all my notes and ideas. He asks the right questions, gets involved with the work, and always takes my aesthetic preferences into account. I will certainly continue to work with him as long as I can, and if asked, I highly recommend hiring him.
