Portfolio – Music

I’ve composed and produced songs for bands I’ve played in, but I have also created a number of pieces for cinema, TV, radio, advertising and the web. Here you will find a selection of my work. To go to a specific section, please use the index just below:

Bands

  • “Unfulfilled” (2011, album) is a compilation of small pieces I’ve composed along recent years. Some of them are rejected pieces from other projects, some are pieces that were around with no special purpose, and some others were composed for people who are important for me. Every piece is accompanied by graphic composition. They can be downloaded from here.

  • Spacebarman is an electronic/indie/rock band where I compose, sing and play guitar. It has its own web page, please come and visit it! This is our most recent EP:

  • Fabricamusic (formerly known as La Fábrica) is a Colombian electrorock band I co-founded in 2000. We have been nominated and have won a number of prizes, and we have done some cool gigs, such as being the opening act for Björk during her performance in Colombia in 2007. We have released a number of EPs and LPs. Stop by and visit our web page. Here is one of our EPs:

  • KillDemonios was a short lived, energetic rock/punk/drum’n’bass band from Bogotá, Colombia. We published three songs which can be heard here:

  • I mastered the tracks for La Espiral first (and only, so far) album “Electrosoul”:

Full-length film soundtrack

  • “Yo soy otro” (2008). Directed by Colombian director Oscar Campo, it is a fantasy film that happens in the context of the armed conflict in Colombia. This soundtrack was co-composed and released by Fabricamusic.

Short films:

  • “Travelling” (2010), a surreal short film directed by Alex Quezada.

  • “El Pescador de Estrellas” (2007), produced by Fosfenos Media. It tells a love story between two kids from Piangüita, a village in Colombian Pacific coast.

  • Escondite” (2007), directed by Marcela Gómez. A night of rebellion against the American Dream.

Interactive sound / art

  • “MixPerceptions” (2013).


    MixPerceptions is an art installation where users interact with artworks using their smartphone or tablets and headphones. The interaction is achieved by means of an augmented reality app that reveals rich and dynamic visual and auditory elements that create an engaging multi-sensorial experience.
    I created the soundtrack, sound design and programmed the audio interaction using Puredata.
