Carlos Fernandez Soto on SoundBetter

I give you the hook, the shower-singing of your track, or if needed I'll arrange a complete song from your idea. Don't hesite trying me!

From IDM to pop, from soundtracks to ballets, through multimedia shows, branding and author music. Always accompanied by a profound sense of humility and admiration for the world around us.

My music is based on simple melodies, almost childlike, which develop in an exalted hymn with my own personal sensibility.

More than 20 years of experience making music for artists, companies, films and shows.

If you need a catchy melody, a hook, a chorus, you are in the right place. Every time I play and instrument i create new music. Try me. Its what I love to do.

Interview with Carlos Fernandez Soto

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  2. A: I'm the composer, producer and director of CAMPEADOR, for choir, rock, orchestra and synthesizers. An epic project where we mix all kind of music: medieval, rock, classic, trance, polyphony, all.

  3. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  4. A: Musicals

  5. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  12. A: Create something that doesn't exist before and it connects with people hearts.

  18. A: What do you want to tell? How do you feel? Whats all about?

  19. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  20. A: Listen the proposed melody. If you connect with it use it. If not, give it a second chance two or three days later. If it doesn't give you any connection you know that in the third listening you will probably give it away. Judging the music listening it only once is the most terrible mistake you can make in your artistic life.

  21. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
