Born and bred in Southern Switzerland (Bellinzona) during college I joined a band and soon developed an interest in making things sound nice and clear… and loud! So I picked up working for a regional PA rental company (K-Sound). A few years later moved to London where I started working for leading Pa company Britannia Row (first shifting boxes and cleaning cables and all that very glamorous side of the industry). Later on I started gigging as assistant engineer/babysitter and then landed the Kula Shaker gig.
Consequently worked with many artist including VV Brown, Amy Winehouse, Kano, Gorillaz, Cassette Kids, Patrick Wolf, Tindersticks, Amy MacDonald, Delorentos and David Bisbal. From 2011 I am also Waves Live product specialist for Latin America as well as Sales Manager for Spain and Portugal. I was looking after Calvin Harris FOH sound for a few years, a mastering gig on a huge scale! Love the fact I tune the PA for a specific song instead of a song for a PA!
Mixing the broadcast feed for the spanish show Got Talent was good fun, now onto the second world tour of Spain with for a Spanish superstar! David Bisbal.
Tiësto knocked on my door and I could not pass the offer! Back out mastering records on massive rigs! (and checking in airport lounges like a pro). In 2019 I mixed FOH for Operación Triunfo 2018, a TV show moved onto arena shows with 14 kids singing, mainly in front of a big PA hang! From February 2019 I joined forces with Marc Llopis to distribute the incredible JH Audio products for the Spanish market and launching the maestroav.com brand.
2019 was a fantastic year, finished off with being in charge of the audio for the Davis Cup finals opening and closing ceremonies; total career highlight!
2020 was a total write off, although I did a few gigs with David Bisbal, Tiesto (pre-covid) and Natalia Lacunza. Ever so thankful for them trying to look after us during these incredibly difficult times.
Some services provided
Below you’ll find some productions I have worked in the past for my clients. Attention to detail is what I focus on the most. No matter the medium I believe everybody has to have the best sonic experience. Through years of research and experience using the most advanced audio processing tools, I am able to deliver consistent output being over a PA, on a TV set or on Youtube with the sound picked up at one of the shows. Distorted YouTube videos are a thing of the past, careful management of the dynamic range almost always guarantees the fans recordings are crystal clear, for them to play back and be able to enjoy the experience again and again..
