Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: In the recording studio we cover many kind of projects. From the musical production for artists, as the composition for TV spots, and even external recording of classical music. The projects that we most commonly receive are those related to music production. Many customers come and bring us their music. We help them record it and take it to the next level
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I have many references that I deeply admire. It is difficult to make a selection. I would forget many very important people. In Spain I can highlight a few: producers like Pepe Loeches, Paco Loco. As for international producers there are many; like Rick Rubin, Ricky Falkner, Gustavo Santaolalla, Avicii. Each of them has many things to admire in different facets. I love work well done. I think that from each job you can learn things.
