DIEGO EZPELETA

My name is Diego Ezpeleta and I am a sound engineer and music producer.

 

I work on audio recording, mixing and mastering for different types of ensembles, ranging from classical to modern productions in jazz, blues, rock, electronic and experimental music, for studio or live environments.

As sound designer and sound mixer my work also features documentary films and multimedia productions, where I combine the use of field recordings, acoustic instruments, electronic sounds and original compositions to support stories and narratives.

I have collaborated with artists and organizations and from places such as Estonia, Netherlands, France, Greece, Belgium, UK, USA and Costa Rica.

My aim is to use sound and music to create, develop and support stories with soul and purpose.
