Daniel Patiño on SoundBetter

Berklee College of Music graduate, Contemporary Writing and Production major. Winner of the 5th annual songwriting contest Ibermúsicas 2018. Finalist for the USA Songwriting Competition 2018, Latin Category. Nominated for Best Original Soundtrack at Die Seriale Festival (Germany), Buenos Aires Web Fest (Argentina) and Bilbao Seriesland.

My work consists in creating, arranging and recording songs for different needs. Songwriting is the core of my process. I love to work on harmony, song structure, lyrics and explore diverse sound concepts depending on the project or artist I'm working with. I'm a latino artist so I gravitate towards my latin music roots although I also take great inspiration from a lot of American and European artists that I grew up listening to.

Besides writing songs for my own project and for other artists, I write underscores for visual content such as movies, TV shows, advertising and documentaries. I arrange and record most of my work in my home studio, combining acoustic and virtual instruments. Depending on the project, I also work on the mix and master for the tracks.

My main instrument is my voice and I also play guitar, ukulele, bass and keys. Being able to play these instruments allows me to record full demos that sometimes end up being a big part of a final track. I arrange for different ensembles that range from background vocals, string sections, horn sections and full orchestra.

In over 10 years of experience as a recording artist and producer in Costa Rica, the US and Mexico, I've build a big network of session musicians, recording engineers, recording studios, mixing engineers and mastering engineers, with whom I collaborate and work on my projects.
