I'm not a professional, but I take my time in order to achieve the best quality that I can offer. Thus, I try to make myself better by learning through new experiences.
Hi, my name is Sebastian and I'm from Bogota, Colombia.
Though I'm not a professional yet, I'm about to start to study sound engineering in Javeriana University here in Colombia.
I have some producing experience; I’ve produced an EDM album by myself.
I've mixed several metal/rock projects (which can be heard in the SoundCloud linked).
-Arrange tracks which have already been recorded (e.g. add synths to the recordings provided).
-Produce & make beats for several genres (such as trap, reggaetón, etc).
I'd like to work with many artists from different genres, since I find it fun to work with distinct cultures and musical experiences. I enjoy the songs which I work with, by trying to connect with the projects provided.

Interview with xMondra
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I find inspiration in many places and peole. I like to seek for new things in different places, therefore i do not listen only metal, or only latin, but for me everything is nice.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: It's a simple setup actually. I have a custom built pc that i use basically for everything. I have a behringer UM2 interface, to connect the Sennheiser HD650 I use for mixing songs. I use Studio One Artist (with 3rd-party VST plugin) as my DAW.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I first organize by colors in Studio One all tracks by type of instrument to allow easier identification within the program's interface and in the control panel. Then I create several bus and FX channels according the instruments and it's role within the song. I always start my mixing percussion instruments since they are the rhythmic base, then i start mixing by sections and finally arrange all sections into the master to achieve the final product. There are several steps in between, but i don't know how to describe them.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I have not worked with many artists, but i like to work with many people since everyone has a different vision about the song, they allow me to expand my own knowledge.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: At first, almost two years ago, I started to learn about sound engineering for mere fun, after a while i found it really interesting. Because of that, i decided to study sound engineering professionally, and luckily here in my country there are several universities that offer the program. I applied to 2 of them, the best according to several reviews and got accepted by the two of them (Universidad Javeriana & Universidad de los Andes).
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Always make sure that pricing is according the quality provided.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Making an approach to different musical cultures, styles and genres.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Digital, due to lack of bugdet I have not worked with analog gear, yet.
