Sound Editor Supervisor

Coser y Cantar Estudio

I’m is a Barcelona-based sound designer. Born into a family of architects, I decided early on not to follow the family tradition and instead pursue a career that allowed me to explore my creativity in filmmaking.

I graduated from the University of Barcelona School of Film (ESCAC) with documentary Pura (1999), after receiving a scholarship for a six-month stay at Singapore’s NgeeAnn Polytechnic.

Back in Spain, I worked with Guillermo del Toro on The Devil’s Backbone (2001)and with fellow ESCAC graduate Juan Antonio Bayona on Bayona’s first short films.

I then moved to New York, where I studied film post-production at New York University (NYU), and then on to London to work as a sound editor.

I returned to Barcelona to do The Orphanage (2007) with Bayona and began to work for directors such as Jaume Balagueró, Collin Trevoror, Kike Maíllo, Denis Villeneuve, Daniel Monzón, Edmón Roch, as well as for Juan Antonio Bayona’s subsequent films.

I was the sound designer of many Spanish and international films such as [REC] (2007),The Impossible (2012), Enemy (2013), Crimson Peak (2015), Penny Dreadful (2014), Jurassic World: The Fallen Kingdom (2018).

I received four Goya awards from the Spanish Film Academy, seven Gaudí awards from the Catalan Film Academy and one Golden Reel Award from the Motion Sound Picture Editors (MPSE).

In 2018 I was awarded Best European Sound Designer by the European Film Academy.

I now combine my work in sound post-production at my own studio, Coser y Cantar, with my teaching activity at ESCAC and other University of Barcelona programs.

I’m a member of the “Academia de Artes y Ciencias Cinematográficas of Spain and the Academy of Arts and Cinematographic Sciences of the United States (Academy of Hollywood) and I’m also involved in other projects in studios in the U.S., Canada and the U.K.
