I come from Bilbao, the Basque Country, Spain, and I am based here right now. When I finished school I went to Manchester (UK) to study BSc (Hons) Music, Acoustics and Recording in the University of Salford. I graduated with honors and I have been a sound engineer since. Before returning home assisted studio sessions in Soul II Soul studios in London for a while.
Back here I started as a assistant in Elkar Estudios and learned from two excellent engineers, Jean Phocas and Cesar Ibarretxe. I have had my own studio, Balea Musika ideiak, with some partners for some thirteen years.
Nowadays I work as a freelance and as a in house engineer in the word class Tio Pete studios. I love recording bands playing together and the lovely live rooms in Tio Pete are ideal for this. What I enjoy most though is mixing, and I can do that in a studio or in my home setup.
I enjoy working in very diverse genres, from classical to rock, from folk to urban music genres.
