I'm a mexican handpan builder based in Barcelona. I'm passioned about art, meditation, theater, personal development, expressing myself with my body and dance and making beautiful things with my hands.
Making handpans for me is a way of connecting with the world of music and musicians. Making friends with beautiful and sensitive people. Having the metal as a master to learn about music instruments construction but also about frustration, perseverance, passion, and all kind of emotions. Handpan making was also a way to find a craft/profession where I can infuse part of myself.
I try to make the best instruments that I'm capable of, but not in a competitive way, more in trying to put my best in a tool that will have a strong connection with another human being, and may be used a lot of hours per day to rehearse, make art and to transmit emotions and feelings.Im focused in achieving a warm subtle sound with a lot of dynamic and balance on the overall of the instrument.
Right now I'm not that focused on a lot of volume or building hard percussive instrument, rather a sensitive instrument with clear warm and pure sound.
