Joaquin began programming alternative and electronic music in clubs and on the radio in the early nineties. Since then, his love for music, technology, and music production got him deeply involved in music making and live performance of electronic music. His unique blend of techno and electronic genres has seen him perform alongside top national and international Djs, who admire his ability to read the crowd. As a performer, in experimental music sessions, live sets, and contemporary dance pieces, he has found a way to further explore the possibilities of the man-machine relationship and become a specialist in live performance. Joaquin also enjoys success as a producer with a long list of tracks released on labels from all over the world.

When he discovered Ableton Live, it immediately became his favorite tool for studio production, recording, and live performance, enabling him to gain extensive practical knowledge of the software to the point of becoming the first Ableton Certified Trainer in Latin America. He currently teaches electronic music production, audio engineering, and Ableton Live courses at SAE Institute in Mexico City, with a focus on production, live performance, recording, generative music, sound design, and developing creative techniques.

Additionally, Joaquin provides masterclasses and conferences on the subject of audio production, sound design, recording, Djing, live performance, interactivity, and scenic art. Joaquin has given masterclasses and workshops in technology events, universities, and music festivals like Mutek, TagDF, SoundCheck Expo, and Campus Party. Through his website he offers training, as well as tips and tricks via free video tutorials. He’s also the founder and coordinator of the Ableton user group in Mexico. Joaquin has helped a large number of artists, musicians, Djs, producers, and live bands to rediscover their potential and creativity through workshops, or as a freelancer in one-on-one sessions.

Joaquin creates and performs sound art pieces and live visuals for dance installations and performances in Menta Movement, with performances taking place in the most recognised venues in Mexico.
