  • Live Music Sound & Mix

Guillermo Subauste has  20 years of performing, producing, songwriting, mixing albums, recording and doing live sound around the world. 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 musician. Some of his projects as a musician include Eastborough, Nevada, Measha Brueggergosman and The Honeyrunners.

Guillermo 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, Subauste started working at Revolution Recording where he engineered The Sadies’ album, Internal Sounds, as well as recording artists such as The Tea Party, Said The Whale, Bidiniband, Tim Hicks, Sarah Harmer, Jill Barber, Jeff Wolpert and more.

In 2014 he decides to go freelance as has a studio in Roncesvalles where he’s produced and engineered records with Vivienne Wilder, Conor Gains, Aaron Davis, Quique Escamilla, Angela Saini and more.
