Who am I?
I am Claudia Baulies, a music composer, sound designer, and artist from Barcelona.
What do I do?
My main fields of work are film music and sound design, music for visual media, and contemporary classical composition.
Why do I do it?
I strive to search and create deep, meaningful connections in all aspects of life, including music and art. Connections with my audience, with my team, and of course within myself, guide my artistic vision in the creation of my own art and my production when, being part of a team, we’re collaborating to bring to life someone else’s. I believe the best art is created when trust, friendship, and love are fostered and shared with the people with whom we’re making art.
So, what are we waiting for?
How do I do it?
The unique requirements of each project dictate the technical means of its production. I love physical instruments; there is nothing like an instrument masterfully performed by a soul. Yet to ignore the infinite possibilities that synthesis brings forth would be folly. Synthesis and sound processing, whether it be through hardware or digital devices, opens a whole cosmos of sounds. There is also nothing like creating a completely new sound when you have heard nothing like it before. I love creating music and sound, whatever the means. Often the project will necessitate a certain production process, while other times it will simply be a journey of experimentation which will form our creative vision.
