Hi there! I´m a composer, musician and arranger based in Buenos Aires.

I have a wide experience playing, composing, recording and mixing different styles of music.
I play guitar, ukelele, drums and percussion, harmonica, charango, piano, keyboards, trumpet, and I work with lots of midi libraries. I love composing soundtracks for TV and cinema, specially instrumental music. I composed and arranged music for FOX international, Avealma Sound delivery, Wondery.com, Wideo.com, Ford, Random House Mondadori, and I composed the original soundtrack of the films "Tierra incognito" and "El Aprendiz", by the film director Tomas De Leone. I made some branding jobs too.
Basically, I love challenges.

Interview with Nicolas Reffray

Analog or digital and why?
A mix of both. Analog has always that warm halo that every musician loves, and digital is a great partner in some projects, there are incredible midi libraries, very realistic, so I think closing the door to it would be a mistake
What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
I play instruments since I was 12, now I´m 34 years old and I´ve been working on musical projects since I was 25. To me, music´s a way of life.
What type of music do you usually work on?
I´m not attached to one type of music. I composed some rock, alternative, pop, country, classical, acoustic, blues, dance tracks, and I made also some music for kids. Each style has its own way, and I love trying with everything.
What's your strongest skill?
My strongest skill is my ability to work with acoustic instruments and compose orchestral arrangements.
What's your typical work process?
It depends on the project and the client, but, in general, I start composing a simple base with the piano or the guitar, and then I continue developing the whole track based on the tastes and requirements of the client. I try to make the song sound simple and complex at the same time.
What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
I really feel inspired with the work of the great Phillip Glass, and the french composer Yann Tiersen, I think they are admirable and talented composers, each one in their own style, capable of creating melodies that go beyond their own time.
Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
Each work is different and I love that, because it allows me to try different stuff all the time, and each project -and each client behind that project- is unique.
Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
I composed and arranged some tracks for a FOX´s branding in Asia. It was a huge experience, plenty of changes and deadlines, and I´m very proud of the process and the final result. The whole project was produced by Martin Blanco for Avealma.
What's your 'promise' to your clients?
Professionalism, always professionalism, and excellent work.
Can you share one music production tip?
Always go further!
What do you bring to a song?
I bring all my experience and professionalism, I put my soul in every project.
