    He did a remote mixing a year ago. Good service, nice mixing indeed. He did some editing even though wasn't included in the deal.

    I had the pleasure to work with the great sound engineer Javier Muñoz in ”Score II: Lo invisible del septimo arte”. I was the show conductor, and I’m very demanding with all the details. I was very happy with his work!! We will work together in future
