It has been a great pleasure working with Diego Sanchez. from the beginning he was aware of the entire process. he had a sincere interest in my project and knew how to put all his talent on it. he took the initiative to have a weekly conference to show his progress and ask if I am satisfied. I had no problem working with him, and he has also been very charismatic and friendly. I am 100% satisfied with his work, I highly recommend him. I am sure that I will win a great prize thanks to his effort.
Diego is an excellent professional always giving the best in his work
Diego is a very committed person with what he does and with his work. He always strives to give 1000% in each composition and this is reflected in his work.
Very serious work from a very talented composer!

A: Classical and Electroacustics
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Composing Orchestral Scores.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I always focus on the type of film, video game, or TV show and what it requires. To accomplish that original tone, I always answer to my self these following questions: What is the most suitable music for the visual? What does the story and the characters tell me, and how can I reflect that on the music? What is the tone and the rhythm that the film/video game/tv show needs?
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I set up a meeting with the director (spotting session) where we watch the film for the first time. After that first watch, we discuss and propose ideas and references for the music. I always try to find an original tone for the series and create original soundscapes that narrate the characters' struggles. Later that day, I analyze the film to understand the characters and the director's vision of the story. Then, I start a cue sheet to know where the music is going to take place. now that I have a map, concepts, and a deep notion of the story, I start composing the music. We have a revision every week with the director until the deadline, and after everything is approved, I mix and master the cues and deliver the stems to the dubbing engineer.
