I have more than 10 years of experience in the audio world. I worked with all kinds of clients: from big companies, advertising and multimedia agencies that handle the highest standards of sound, audio logos and sound design, to small independent artists who dedicate their lives to their art.
I believe that creativity is the starting point to find the solution to most problems. I am very thoughtful and intuitive for every project I get involved in. I like to internalize myself as deeply as possible. That's why I am constantly training and facing new stimuli in order to have always new and renewed ideas.

Working with Mariano was incredible. His musicality, clarity and experience made everything super easy and enjoyable. Looking forward on collaborating again soon!.
a pleasure working with this dude . Amazing ears and really understands how to lift a project to the next level.
I needed a great communicator who had professional experience producing and mixing a song which required Mariano to hire vocalists, create a new version of original music from a demo I recorded, and mix a single. I found a gem, a complete pleasure to work with, and I hope this is the first of many great reviews he earns.
Interview with Mariano Cukierman
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: There is no correct answer. They are two sound design tools, each with its pros and cons.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Each artist and each song are a world to discover. Being the explorer of those worlds is what fascinates me the most about my work.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: If the song works with only one instrument, the rest are colors.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I usually work on pop songs, groovy beat, R&B and soul.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I feel very comfortable working with the groove of a song, both from the sound design and from the musical arrangement, I think that making the listener move his foot when he listens to the music is my most successful work.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I like to have a chat with the artist to get to know him and understand where his/her musical quest is coming from, what kind of audio he/she has in mind and how I can help him achieve it. Then, I usually ask for inspirational references that can be used for the search (either arrangement, audio or mixing). Once the process is underway, I like to maintain a constant communication channel with the artist to see the progress together and to be able to make the necessary adjustments to materialize the music.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: Right now, I'm working with either Pro Tools or Live - depending on the type of production or mix I have to do. Gear wise, I have an Apollo Twin Duo, U87, SM7B, and 57 mics, Adam T7V monitors, Arturia controllers, Seagull AC guitar, '94 Japanese Fender Stratocaster, Shecter Custom 335, Warkick Rock Bass, and a 2019 Macbook Pro.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I'm a music fan, I like the sound design of Fineas, the groove of John Mayer and D'Angelo, the harmonies and arrangements of Sting ... if it's music, I love it!
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I usually do integral productions related to soul, r & b and indie. I'm also call to mix third party productions.
