Rafael Rico on SoundBetter

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).

Services offered:
- 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.

  1. Review by Marco A.

    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.

    Rafa is one of the best composers I have work with. He has everything a Director or anyone is looking: he is talented; has great input; knows how to listen and has great personality.

    Rafa's work has a great range, perfect for each different project you are work in. You will definitely enjoy working with him and I guarantee you will love his work.

  5. Review by Hans Goksoyr

    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.

  6. Review by Fran Mendez

    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!

    Fran Mendez,

  7. Review by Garrett Martin

    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

  8. Review by Patricia
