Sound engineer, dj at Victoria and Albert museum
January 2011- present days
-Djing at the Victoria and Albert museum has been one of the most challenging experiences I’ve had in my dj career. The museum is a prestigious spot hosting thousands of visitors from all over the world every day. There I had to completely change my approach and my dj set style in order to suit the tastes of a multi-ethnic crowd; I had to accord the music to the very unique acoustic of the building and had to meet the museum requirements in terms of health and safety. Once a month, the cafeteria of the museum hosts a live band and in that occasion I work as sound engineer there, thanks to that I had the opportunity to work with great musicians as : Jay Phelps, Art Themen, Peter King, James Senese, The Chamber Ensamble Of London, Eduardo Niebla.
Recording engineer, mixing engineer for Emily Kraemer album “Left-Right” out on the 15th of december 2012
July 2012-November 2012
-I’ve recorded and mixed Emily Kraemer forthcoming album “Left-Right”. The recordings were challenging due to the low budget and the location. The artist decided to record the whole album in an old church located in Belsize Park, in London. The acoustic of the church wasn’t the best for some of the songs included in the album, so it required a very careful instruments and microphones placing, plus a equally careful mixing. The instruments list included piano, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, double bass, first violin, second violin, viola, cello, drums and percussions. Everything was recorded and mixed on Logic 8.

Against oll the odds the result was brilliant and the album got good reviews from specialized magazines and great feedbacks from listeners. Everything was recorded on Logic 8 and the band line up included first violin, second violin, viola, cello, guitar, electric piano, vocals and percussions.
