Nahuel Bronzini is an Argentinean guitarist and composer music producer currently based in San Francisco. Bronzini's music explores themes of nostalgia and longing, navigating sonorities from both the contemporary classical world as well as jazz and pop/folk generes. Nahuel is voting member of the Grammy Academy and the Audio Engineering Society.
Whether I am working on a pop mix with multiple layers of programmed drums and a variety of synth sounds or writing a string quartet arrangement with four or more voices, my main focus is in the music. Understanding the emotional content, what the artist is trying to put out as a message, and what the intended effect on the listener is, are the main goals of any production I work on.
My background is diverse, from formal studies in acoustics to playing jazz and contemporary classical music. I am comfortable on both sides of the action, from dialing in a conflicting frequency and addressing different technical solutions for a mix, to developing a musical arrangement for a specific part of a song, from a more intuitive pop approach, to a fully written orchestral score.
Although I love technique...Claude Debussy is always a beautiful reminder - "There is no theory. You have only to listen. Pleasure is the law. "

Nahuel is gifted producer. The tracks we were worked on sounded great and were a pleasure to add to. Hope we can work together again soon!
I was impressed with Nahuel's sound engineering skills. He combines technical skills with a great ear - hearing music deeply, ensuring optimal recording and mixing approaches. Because of his broad skills, Nahuel is able to effortlessly communicate with artists, musicians, and engineers alike.. I highly recommend you working with him!
Nahuel is such a real person and so able and willing to help. I like his approach of listening and understanding your needs very well, finishing a rather polished rough draft, and then finishing up. He works fast and with passion and skill. Highly recommended!
Although he is great with jazz, pop, and classical, he's also great with new age! You c
Nahuel helped produce a remix on one of my songs and he did an amazing job. He was easy to work with and go along well with my manager. I'd definitely work with him again!
I've worked on a few different projects with Nahuel Bronzini, and I'm still constantly surprised by his delicate harmonic sensibility and ear. Nahuel beautifully mixed my first EP and made our three-day recording sound like it had been done over weeks. More recently he arranged strings for four of my songs with amazing results! :)
It was great working with Nauhel on a project this past summer. He was instrumental in us getting a great sounding final product and is comfortable wearing multiple hats including mixing ,musician ,producing ,writing and has many other skills as well. Looking forward to working together more in 2016
Nahuel is a very creative, fun to work with, super professional composer! We had great experience working on 3 games already and we'll continue working together on new titles!
Interview with Nahuel Bronzini Music Producer
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I just finished a project that brings together the music of 8 different solo artists from the US and Argentina with the sound of the string quartet. My string quartet arrangements as the lingering tone all throughout. This was a very special project and I am very very happy with how it turned out. I encourage you to check it out. It's called "The String Quartet Experience".
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: The human connections I've made through the years! Some of my best friends and the most meaningful connections I've made have been through music and through my work specifically. The liberty of being about to create is one of the most rewarding things I could have given. The uncertainty that sometimes brings the fact that there are really no right or wrongs, and an infinite number of paths to different sounds and emotions is a daily challenge. It keeps me in a constant search for improvement and discovery.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: I would highly recommend that anybody seeking for music production services shows their material to different people and ask for ideas and suggestions based on their music. And that pay attention mostly to critiques rather than to compliments. The idea of bringing someone else to work in your music is to being able to get it to its fullest potential, and sometimes there are little details that a second pair of ears can catch and make for a great improvement. Also, the more insightful the answer you get, the more likely that the producer you are hiring will get more involved with the project and put the best out of themselves. This is about a creative process. Art is about involvement.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: I love to work on my productions using sibelius on rewire mode with pro tools. This allows me to fully experience the interaction between scored parts and the audio elements I already have going on the production. Most importantly how the main vocals and rhythmic elements interplay with a horn arrangement, string section or a single cello line. It's all about the composition of the full picture.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I do a combination of work, but mostly producing and arranging music for singer songwriter - solo artists that are seeking to expand their musical soundscape. I also do classical music recording and mixing of a variety of genres, from pop, to crossover of jazz and classical and video game music as well.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My hearing. My musical training on both classical and jazz, I would like to say my "musical" approach to the technical process. I love both.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I try not to get caught up with what "I" can bring to the song, but rather, what the song is calling for. It could be a small chord change, could be a larger arranging decision, "lets bring some strings in here...", or "this sounds great, let's actually track that guitar in mono, we don't need more than that in here!". These are examples from a broad range of things that could happen. My answer is I guess, both my musical background and technical experience at studio tracking and mixing. And mostly, just having my ears very sensitive to any nuance or details that we could improve or that we didn't catch along the way...
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: First of all, I like to talk with my clients and find out what their musical intent is and, only after listening to their music, I can truly start to understand how I will be able (if so) to help in their project. To me, music comes first, always, so I really like getting in touch with the music as close as I can, listening to a songwriter playing their songs straight from their guitar and voice live at my living room, before than at a tracking room. Once I have a good idea of what will be done I like to plan a multi step process where we are able to address all the aspects of the production: reviewing the music, addressing compositional details, deciding on form and arrangements, sketch the songs in a pre-production mode, and from there start capturing definitive sounds and later on preparing for mixing.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I work mostly at my home studio set up for most of my mixing that I do on my own and also all the arranging and pre production. I love the coziness and comfort of a space that I am very familiar with and also know to the bone. I mix on Yamaha HS Series accompanied by their sub woofer and work on Protools. I am constantly looking for new facilities around the Bay Area that can host different projects and that can best accommodate the specific needs of whatever comes next! Great rooms are the key to great recording of acoustic music, Drums, strings brass, you name it, and I love to choose a specific room for a specific project, since each project requires a specific sound.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I love Radiohead, Bjork, Coldplay, Boniver, Becca Stevens, John Maye (all these for both the production value and their music, and of course that has to do with those people involved in their production), I like when a certain style carries a specific "mixing sound", because I believe recorded music is an art of itself, which many times can differ from the performed music at a live situation. When the album has the power to captivate me as much as the live performance, or just in a different but equally effective way, then that inspires me.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: It really varies. But usually people get in touch with me for either singer-songwriter type productions, where a solo artist who has a handful of songs written is looking to "expand" its sonic landscape (we could say), and perhaps include new instrumentation, arrangements, could be strings, brass, a bg vocals layer, or a full band to capture it all in a studio album. But sometimes it is a group or artist who is looking for a mixing engineer to mix their music, coming from a different studio or sometimes a combination of self produce and studio recording.
