Speaker / topic for this month: Guillermo Alberto Subauste on preproduction, the recording process, & album planning.
Guillermo has 16 years of experience performing, producing, song writing, mixing albums, recording and doing live sound around the world. He emerged from the Peruvian punk rock scene of the early 2000s, with a DIY approach that allowed him to play countless shows, organize festivals and work as a sound engineer for several bands at a local studio in Lima, as well as doing live sound.
After a 2 year period at The Banff Centre, where Guillermo worked alongside great artists and producers (Jane Bunnet, The Bad Plus, Joni Mitchell) at the state of the art facilities in the heart of the Canadian Rockies, he moved back to Peru where he toured as the Front of House engineer for Adammo (Latin Grammy nomination and MTV Latin America Award recipient), mixing shows with audiences of up to 120,000 people. At the same time he had the pleasure of mixing shows as a freelance Front of House engineer for artists like Joey Cape (Lagwagon), Mike Herrera (MXPX), Youth Of Today, and many more.
In December of 2010, Guillermo moved to Toronto, Canada where he started gaining a reputation as a mixing engineer and drummer. Some of his projects as a musician include Dolly Shot, Eastborough and Nevada. He discovered his passion for teaching at Recording Arts Canada, where he taught Recording and Sound Design for 2 years, which he was able to balance with extensive touring as the live mixing engineer for The Sadies.
In December 2012, Guillermo started working at Revolution Recording where he engineered The Sadies’ newest album, Internal Sounds. In 2014, he decided to continue as a freelancer, he now works from his studio in Roncesvalles, and additionally plays bass with The Honeyrunners and drums with Nevada and Eastborough.
