PABLO ROMERO GIL (R.I.P)
Pablo was born in Mexico City (anthropologists are still debating about the actual birth date). He studied Music at the National Music School of the Mexican National University in 1972. Also attended the National Conservatory of Mexico City in 1974 and was a regular student at the class of renowned classical guitarist Manuel Lopez Ramos from 1971 until 1975 (musicologist are still debating if he actually got to learn something in all those places).
After the completion of his musical education, Pablo got interested in sound engineering and cursed studies with engineer David Baksht from 1980 to 1984. He was almost immediately hired as sound engineer by his teacher at the studios Publiservicios S.A. where he worked a first period from 1982 to 1985 and then again from 1989 to 1995. In between both periods he continued his professional career at Promusic Studios where he remained for a period of 2 years.
During this period and parallel to his activity as sound engineer, he featured as guitarist with the band El Brujo, joined by Joaquin “Negro” Ortiz and the highly missed flute player Jorge Gonzalez.
In 1996 he gets hired by the ATM Studio of the city of Querétaro, where he would work for a whole year. Then he was recruited by the INI (Pro-Indian National Institute) where he worked also as sound engineer from 1998 to 2002, and after that he worked for Cadisa Records as from the year 2003 and until 2005.
The following year he was hired by the field recording and production department of the Atlas of the Indian communities of the Hidalgo province, where he would remain until 2007. Since 2008 until today he continues his work as a professional sound engineer specialized in post-production and mixing at the Santa Maria Audio Suite studios in Mexico City, where he features as business partner.
Pablo features in Cronofonía as sound engineer, guest musician and production assistant of the Mexican side of the project. Sadly he passed away before he could enjoy the final result of this album but his spirit will forever be present within this project.
