Music is my life, but so are movies! So, I just like to spend my time creating music and soundscapes for films and audiovisual content. On my spare time, I write and produce my own music as a singer/songwriter.
I'm a full time Composer/Sound Designer/Producer with more than 7 years of experience working on TV ads, films, documentaries, etc. I got a degree in Post & Game Audio Production from Nimbus: School of Recording & Media and I'm also a singer/songwriter with 2 studio albums, 1 live album and an OST for a feature documentary called "Unbounded".
I have worked for brands like Pepsi, Samsung, Gatorade, Levi's, Under Armour, Amnesty International, Delichoc, Land Rover and other artists like Chino y Nacho (Venezuela), Hanggai (China), Ozuna (Puerto Rico), Stephanie Ratcliff (Canada), Andrés Mata (Venezuela) and producers like Bob Ezrin (Pink Floyd) and Garth Richardson (Red Hot Chili Peppers).
- Music production for artists and soundtracks.
- Writing to picture & Jingle composition.
- Mixing and recording engineering.
- Post audio production: Sound Design, Foley, ADR, audio restoration, editing and mixing.
- Session player: singer & guitarist. Remote recording if needed.

From the first contact Rafael, I felt very comfortable. I entrusted him with the arrangement of my first song, which thanks to his professionalism, know-how and a good dose of passion has become a great piece. I'm glad to go back to work with him and I recommend him highly.

Rafael is a very talented and creative composer/sound designer. We have a great working relationship. He really listens and embraces the project needs in a way that very much helps push the final product to a new level. He also works fast and gets feedback implemented seamlessly. I highly recommend Rafael for your scoring and sound design needs.
Rafael's talent, ingenuity, and trustworthiness, are just some of the qualities that make him such an invaluable collaborator.
For the last couple of years, I have developed a solid professional relationship with Rafael and he's now been my composer for several projects.
Rafael is also a truly *amazing* sound designer. He's extremely kind, fast and very thorough with his work.
I highly recommend him!
Rafael composed music for a feature documentary I was directing titled "Unbounded". He was able to produce a score that completely exceeded my expectations. Rafael has an incredible ability to bring visuals to life through his music. Even with a vague direction, he is able to create a score that flows with scenes and completely enhances the final product. He is efficient, quick, knowledgeable and has a diverse set of skills that few other composers have
Responsible, straightforward and effective communication, top notch service. Rafael is incredibly talented and works really fast.
