One Of SmartSound's Audio Visionaries
One of SmartSound’s most popular royalty free music creators, Francisco has made a name for himself in international film, trailer music and other media. In 2013 he scored the movie “Brillantes” by award winning filmmaker Ignacio Gonzales, a comedy-action film shot in Arizona and released in February of 2014.
“What really inspires my music are pictures, either the actual pictures of the film or simply mental images. From there, I imagine the histories behind the characters or think in terms of an emotion.” This attitude explains Francisco’s popularity with SmartSound’s media creator customers, who are often driven by story and a strong sense of emotion. By thinking of details such as character history, Francisco is able to develop a deeper emotional connection in his music through the unstated but still present subtext of this history.
Born and raised in Santiago, Chile he is a graduate in composition and arrangement from the Modern School of Music in Santiago where he developed his strong sense of the orchestra and how to use orchestral color to portray emotions. A true musical artist, besides being classically trained as a pianist he also plays the guitar, clarinet and oboe. Despite his strong background as an instrumentalist, his studies at the university inspired him so much he fell in love with the orchestra and with writing for it, and that has become his passion. Currently, Francisco makes his home in France, where he writes and produces music for a variety of media clients.
Meticulous, Francisco says he can “pass hours trying to recreate a particular sound that comes into my head, it could be the challenge of reproducing a certain instrumental passage or recreating a particular sound or point of view in the music.” This sense of dedication to quality and perfection shines through Francisco’s music.
