I´ve been recording and mixing records in Buenos Aires for 3 years now. I´ve been through many different styles, like Jazz, Rock, Pop, Latin and many others.
I´m looking for bands or soloist musicians that want great mixes. Not just good mixes.

Interview with Marce Fuentes
Which artist would you like to work with and why?
At the moment I´m working with an argentinian band called Octafonic. You should check it out!!! I´m their monitor engineer and I would love to record their next album. It would be a big challenge for me.
Can you share one music production tip?
Try really hard to make your songs sound on it´s own. Study. Rehearse. That´s the only path that will lead you to great songs.
What type of music do you usually work on?
All kinds of music actually.
What's your strongest skill?
I think I have a really wide open mind (and ears) and I really mix what the music ask for.
What do you bring to a song?
I try to ensure that every song transmits it´s particular energy, it´s message. The search is the emotion.
What's your typical work process?
I always ask for reference songs and start listening to them. It´s very important for me to know what kind of audio my client is looking for. I open the multitrack and listen what the song is saying to me. Every song has it´s own soul and I think my job is finding it and making it visible with my mix.
What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
At the moment one of my inspirations is songwriter, producer and mix engineer Steven Wilson. Better known as Porcupine Tree´s guitarist and lead vocalist. He sure knows how to put together every brick that makes a song sound like it should.
Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
In live venues I can develop both as a FOH or monitor tech. At the studio, I usually record and mix music albums.
