Pablo Munguía to Head Valencia Music Production, Technology, and Innovation Program
On July 1, Pablo Munguía ’97 began his work as the director of the Music Production, Technology, and Innovation Program at Berklee College of Music's campus in Valencia, Spain. Munguía, an award-winning producer, audio engineer, and mixer, relocated to Valencia from Los Angeles, California, where he had worked with major artists on recording projects and with audio teams for large-scale, live television productions for the Super Bowl halftime show, the Academy Awards, Grammy Awards, American Music Awards, and more. Mungía’s work in television has earned him five Primetime Emmy Awards.
Munguía grew up in Mexico City, Mexico, where he worked as a musician before coming to America to earn his bachelor’s degree at MIT and master’s degree at the University of Texas at Austin. Munguía later earned a second bachelor’s degree in music, production, and engineering at Berklee in 1997. No stranger to academe, Munguía worked at the University of California, Los Angeles, in the extension division where he taught advanced audio engineering techniques and music production. Munguía is an expert in the leading digital music production systems, and has worked extensively with Ableton Live, Logic, and Pro Tools.
Stepping into his new role in Valencia, Munguía succeeds Stephen Webber, the music technology and innovation program’s founding director. During the 1990s, Munguía studied with Webber at Berklee. “Pablo is perceptive, smart, curious, and ambitious,” Webber says. “I knew he would do great things in his career. I believe he’s the perfect innovator to take the reins of this remarkably innovative master’s degree program.”
