Colombian born, composer, producer and sound designer, hailing from the beautiful Caribbean city of Cartagena de Indias. I currently reside in Madrid/Spain where I have been living for the past thirteen years. I´m a veteran of local sound recording studios, most notably Synthesis Iberia, where I spent time as chief engineer recording voice-overs for most of the video-game titles you play in Spanish. As a musician, things have never stopped since I picked up my electric guitar and formed my first punk band back home at age 12….. and it has been an adventure in sound ever since! I currently record as one half of Electronic duo Somekong, with which aside from pressing our own material, have collaborated with seminal uk electronic act Ladytron on their 2008 effort “Velocifero” and most recently, remixed their 90 degrees track on their “Gravity the Seducer Remixed” album. I currently split my time between writing music for different companies and video production houses in Spain and France and my childhood “dream-pop” project Cocos Quemaos. Music is like a forest you walk to get lost in, exploring deeper and deeper every time. This philosophy prompts me to dwell outside my comfort zone and into new styles and territories. I always strive for making music you won´t feel indifferent to, but with respect to coexisting with its medium of application and embracing every project through my own filter but always as an experience.
