Interview with Julio Bernárdez

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  2. A: I was the composer and producer of the musical content of a podcast called La Sabrozona, by Mariano Sandoval. Mariano Sandoval is one of the biggest chefs in Mexico (IG @chefmarianos )

  3. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  4. A: I am working on a meditation app with some guys on India, recording meditation scripts with voiceover artists from mexico, I am also working on making beats in beatmakers, and sending pitches in soundtradr. I am also working with an electropop band from chile called intelectrica, and I am developing my DIY 500 preamps prototypes

  5. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  6. A: Yes, Gerardo Sánchez (a music composer also known as Jerry). I studied with him, made a few projects and he is frankly a genius

  7. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  8. A: Both. Mostly Digital, but I think that having analogue in the preamplification stage is a project-changer, mostly because that's the only thing that in my experience software can't fully emulate without adding harshness.

  9. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  10. A: Quality

  11. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  12. A: I can have fun and avoid the 9-5 office work (which I have just lately been able to afford to leave)

  13. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  14. A: Don't you get tired of working? No, I feel more alive

  15. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  16. A: That I am a DJ

  17. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  18. A: What is your vision on this project? Why are we doing this? How much time do you expect to get things done?

  19. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  20. A: Expect quality

  21. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  22. A: an electricity generator (for obvious reasons), a keyboard with velocity-sensitive pads included, my computer, my steinberg ur 44 with cables included, and the md 421 (best mic ever)

  23. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  24. A: I started with piano classes at 5 years old, I started playing bass at 12, I enrolled a music production academy at 15 at the same time I started working as a cable-puller in a studio, I graduated and studied Music Production and audio Engineering at Tecnológico de Monterrey University, and now I am in my last semester and I am working at a studio as a music producer
