About

Sound designer | RUIDO | Ecuador

I’m a self tought musician who started studying Sound and Acoustic Engineering on 2005. I graduated on 2011 with a research project based on immersive film audio and my first job was in a studio dedicated to sound for film. My main roles there were audio post-production assistant and boom operator in many short and feature length movies. I worked there for 3 years and then started a career in sound production for film as an independent freelancer.

On 2015 I got a scholarship to study a masters degree in Acoustics & Music Technology in the University of Edinburgh, UK. There I learned about audio programming for digital sound FX and synthesis in MAX/MSP and Matlab, also interactive audio for video games thru FMOD and UNITY and physics-based modelling of musical instruments.

In the present I’m a part-time teacher on Sound Design for I.A.V.Q.’s film school and also work freelance in my co-founded company RUIDO (Social: @ruidoec), where we offer services for on-location sound recording, audio equipment renting, audio post-production, editing, foley production, sound design and surround 5.1 mixing for audiovisual media.

I also play guitar in two bands (Liners & Desastre Paradiso) and work as a freelance music producer and mixing engineer for bands, specially in the genres of Jamaican influenced music (ska, reggae, rocksteady) and Alt-Rock/Punk.

Currently, I’m co-leading a research project about recording and creating a database of acoustic impulse responses of emblematic and world heritage churches and old theaters from Quito, with the support and funding from the architectural faculty of the San Francisco de Quito University.
