Arranger, film composer, guitarist an lutenist. I've been making music since I was 13 years old and from that moment I've been doing different things related to music, studying and working with many groups.
-I play the guitar! Classic and electric. Rock, Latin American folklore, Classical, Sephardic, etc.
-I play the lute! Specifically the Renaissance lute, with which I make music from that period. But I also usually use the sonority of the instrument for current productions, which provides a very particular sound.
-I compose music! Mainly for cinema and theater
-I make arrangements! They can be general arrangements of a song for which you only have a basic melody and harmony, or more specific works such as wind or string arrangements.
Services I offer:
*Remote sessionist: send me your song and I'll record the guitar, the lute or any of the instruments you see in my gear. I can record here in my home studio.
*Arranger: send me your song and I'll make the arrangements for it. They can be wind, strings, piano, guitar, choirs or the general full band arrangement.
* Composer for audiovisuals!
Check the playlist of my works here on the right. (More samples)
