Hey thanks for cheking out my profile!
I am a cellist and composer form Buenos Aires, Argentina. My career has led me to work world wide, touring Europe many times, playing and interpreting my own music and the works of other colleagues such as KALEEMA, Naama Tsabar, Wilfrido Terrazas, playing in festivals such as MUTEK (ES), Akouphène (CH), Art Basel Cities (AR), KLANGRAUM (DE), PIano + among others. I also have received support for my music by Swiss Arts Coouncil Pro Helvetia, Austrian Cultur funds, the Fondo Nacional de las Artes (Individual Creation, Groupal Creation, Improvisation and Composition Residency), Fondo Argentino de Desarrollo Cultural y Creativo, Centro Experimental del Teatro Colón, heim.art.
On the audio sample I had the pleasure of play and record all 6 of this cello sextet. Write if you wish for other references.

Interview with Gabriela Areal
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I'd like to work with Suddan Archives, her music is super interesting when combined with full strings section.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I'm great at super expressive lines, extended techniques and complex rhythmic patterns
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I'll bring a very accurate, thoughtful and easy to mix recording of what's needed for the song.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I work at my home studio, in the middle of the block square. Depending on the needs, the place can be arranged to be super dry, in order to release clear clean samples, or to have some resonance, giving the recordings a very nice natural room sound. I use the Focusrite 4i4 audio interface, a DPA cello mic for most recordings, and a Zoom 4Hn when needed and Sennheiser HD 25 Closed-back On-ear Studio Headphones.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Kaleema, Suddan Archives, Eevee, Juana Molina.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Listen and trust your work. Buck up your tracks.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Experimental, contemporary, dream pop, folk.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: First I get in touch with the previously existing materials, weather that is the score, the song, or talking to the artist about their references for the music. If it's a cello playing gig, after this I study and try ways of playing that could enhance the music. Then I record, listen, correct things if it is needed, send it and expect feedback!. If it's writing a string arrangement, I'll have some further conversations and references with the artist in order to nail what they are expecting. Then I make a draft and share it, and after having it approved I goo on and finish.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Contemporary pieces, dream pop and folk songs. I also get a lot of consultation regarding other arrangements.
