Paco Ramirez on SoundBetter

Film Composer, Multi Instrumentalist, Arranger, Producer, Nice Guy. Feel free to contact me if you want to want your next project to sound like a soaring and epic master piece or if you need just one touching and soft piano I can adapt to your needs. Seriously, I'm a really nice guy.

I have been a musician for the last 10 years working as a session guitarist for local projects in my hometown, songwriter, film composer and occasional music editor.

I have credits as an arranger for the band Aliter and as well working with film composer Alejandro Karo for his debut EP "Lienzos" as a music editor.

My services span as a session musician, edition, full orchestration for your film/tv episode, produce your next song, additional music/recordings.

Since the bulk of development is done in Mexico, I can offer much better cost-benefit ratios. – The experience is that of dealing with a local provider. You get the best of both worlds; Mexico Partnership – Offshore Prices.

That being said, you can ask for my demo reel and recent work through e-mail for your interest in working together.
