My name is Juan Pablo Rodríguez, i´m from Bogotá Colombia and I just graduated from Universidad de Los Andes here in Bogotá. I am a music producer.
It all started when I was 16 years old and had a basic music production class at my school. I´ve always loved music and I wanted to go further into it as a career, so I chose that class to learn about audio and see if I liked it; I did a lot.
This song was composed by me and my friend Luis Chisco. It all started last year when I needed
to compose something for my graduation project. The entire production was done this year and most of the recording was done in my University. Because of COVID 19, I had to record the accordion and vocals remotely and mix it all at home with headphones (with Sonarworks reference 4 and a Yamaha HS7 as a reference). I finished it in July and presented my graduation project in August, so when the competition opened I said, "Why not, let's send something and see what happens." And it all went wonderfully.
A teacher named Marcela Zorro invited the students to create an AES section last year and I was really interested so I joined. Since then, I have been really happy to be part of it.
My favorite part was the competition. I really liked having the opportunity to receive feedback from very important engineers.
