Welcome!

I’m Nico (42), born in Mexico raised in Montevideo and currently living for about 15 years in Hamburg. I´m passionate about music, audio engineering, programming and art in general. I´ve been developing and integrating these areas throughout my life working, studying, practicing, mostly „on the field “. I have a background as a professional Doublebass player, i studied in Hamburg with Stefan Schäfer at the Hamburger Konservatorium and in Uruguay with Prof. Carlos Weiske. I had the chance to play in Orchesters like the Philharmoniker Hamburg, NDR Radio Philharmonie, Filarmónica de Montevideo, Orquesta nacional del sodre, and Orquesta Juvenil de Montevideo as principal bassist. I also have worked on Crusie Ships playing Jazz and musicals. I´ve been part on musical projects like the big band “Estación Central Big Banda” with which we took part on the musical “Chicago” in Montevideo. Also i made tours and played with singers like Sabalero, Chico Novarro, Soledad Bauzá, and many more. In Hamburg i´m currently active with the “Harvestehuder Sinfonie Orchester”, “Tango Manzana” as well as with the band rekkorder, apart from occasional gigs. I also wirte/produce original music and i´m currently making some recordings at my semi-professional homestudio.

Cheers!
