Haptós is a word that comes from ancient Greek and refers to haptic perception, that is, perception through the active exploration of the sense of touch. We have decided to use this name because, after more than 15 years dedicated to sound, we are convinced that it is the best way to describe our relationship with sounds.
Hey! I am a Chilean sound engineer and acoustician. In 2014 I graduated with a master's degree in "Sound Studies" at the Berlin University of the Arts (UdK).
2013 I founded my studio, Haptós Soundlab, dedicated to sound recording, mixing and design. Besides, I combine my work as a sound engineer with artistic research within the field of sound art. In the last years, I've been participating in important festivals such as "Eufonia Festival", "Ars Electronica" and "48 Stunden Neukölln".
I am passionate about sound and I like to combine my technical knowledge with other areas closer to the phenomenon of sound perception such as the use of space.
Would love to hear from you. Click the contact button above to get in touch.

Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I like to work mostly "out of the box". Even if working "in the box" gives you versatility and flow, I think that it's essential to appeal to the warmth and imperfection that only electric components can deliver.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Steve Albini
