José Pacheco on SoundBetter

If someone asked me to answer impulsivly to describe myself as producer & musicmaker, well that would be like this: For me music is unique almost everytime. I try my best to relate to the singer/artist to understand what they like or want. I´m very honest and don´t take projects that I can´t handle or like.

I´m an originaly chilean guy in sweden and been around in Stockholm for a long time. Been working and playing in bands like all my life. I was so interested in music and sound that I chose to study on Piteå musik högskolan whitch is one the most coveted university for audio engineers.
Thru the years I been working on the National Swedish Radio as sounddesigner and engineer, Dramaten Royal Theather in Stockholm and Television.
Back in 1995 I was signed as artist for Warner Chapell in Sweden.
So, I been making music for a very long time and working with a lot of people with different bakgrounds. I feel that I actually have a lot to give. Experience is important and I can see that now more that ever.
I have connections with most of the recording studios in Stockholm and know a lot of people that can help. And equipment is not an issue.
